Fall Treats - Put it in a Waffle! Apple Waffles


If you're in the mood to splurge and add some fall flair into your breakfast, these apple waffles are delicious! My nearly 4 year old decided he only liked plain waffles and refused to eat these (isn't that annoying), but the little guy gobbled them up and I thought they were great. The Husband wasn't here but he will love these, being an apple dessert lover.


Cinnamon Apple Waffles
adapted from MrBreakfast's Apple Waffles

2 cups flour
3 T sugar
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 large eggs, separated
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
1 large apple, finely diced

Wisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in one bowl. Separate the eggs - eggwhites in your kitchenaid mixer with the whip attachment (or bowl you plan to use for whipping), and the egg yolks in a separate bowl (Yes, I know, three bowls have to get dirty and for that I apologize profusely).

While the mixer is whipping up the eggwhites on high speed (goal is stiff peaks) and your waffle iron is heating up, wisk the egg yolks and add in the milk and stir to combine. Then mix the yolk/milk mixture in with the dry mixture, and don't overmix. Stir in vegetable oil, cinnamon, vanilla and fold in the stiff eggwhites. Carefully stir in the diced apple (I used a large granny smith and it was quite nice having a tart contrast with the sweet maple syrup).


Scoop into your waffle iron (I spray mine first to avoid sticking), and cook until your preference (The Husband likes soft and I like crispy waffles!) Enjoy with pure maple syrup or a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

I hope you enjoy, these were really delicious - they look whole wheat/healthy too but it's just the cinnamon. ;)
