HEALTHY APPLE CINNAMON WAFFLES

WHAT

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, 1 egg white
  • 1 cup of coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 green apple, peeled, shredded
  • 1 heaping tbsp greek yogurt
  • 2-4 tbsp melted butter (or any oil of your choice) the more butter/oil utilized the “crispier on the outside” effect will be elevated

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour (oat flour)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 2 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • cinnamon to taste

Toppings

  • Caramel sauce
  • Pecan pieces
  • Almond butter
  • Shredded coconut

Optional:

  • Maple syrup
  • Green apple slices for garnishing


HOW

  1. Mix together all wet ingredient minus the shredded green apple.
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients.
  3. Add dry mixture to wet until well incorporated, only then adding shredded apples. The batter will be thick.
  4. Preheat waffle iron and prepare it with coconut oil spray.
  5. Spoon batter into waffle and prepare according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Should yield 4 large waffles or 8 standard waffles (I used a heart shaped waffle iron because it was Valentine’s Day!
  7. Top your waffles with almond butter, sprinkle shredded coconut, pecans pieces and drizzle with caramel sauce and fresh apples on top! Maple syrup is optional and a delicious addition.

I’m in love with these waffles. I already knew apple and cinnamon went together, but the use of coconut milk in the batter and shredded coconut as a topping made it a home run for sure. Refrain from substituting those ingredients for optimal results!

I hope you make it and enjoy it as much as I did!

    Oh my, these are fantastic! I used oat flour instead of whole wheat and 1/4 applesauce instead of the yogurt and they were SO good. These are our new fav!
