Apple Cinnamon Waffles

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Happy Hippie

I just purchased a new waffle iron and am on a search for awesome waffle recipes. This is one I found on I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. Any left over waffles would freeze well (OAMC). NOTE: You can also try adding different fruits and spices instead of apple and cinnamon. I added a couple fistfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and the grandkids flipped over them.

I made these yesterday and they are good. I made a couple of changes: I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour to make them more healthy. I also grated the apple, and that seemed to work great. I needed only a tiny bit more liquid to make up for the fact that I used whole wheat flour. The waffles smelled divine while they were cooking, and tasted great when they were done: not terribly sweet, but with a great apple-cinnamon flavor. I also made homemade applesauce to put on the waffles as a special treat. The kids gobbled them! Thanks for the recipe, Happy Hippie!
