Yummy waffles that are the perfect breakfast on a lazy fall morning, or could even be topped with ice cream or whipped cream and caramel sauce for a simple dessert. The apples and walnuts add a bit of texture and excellent flavor. Recipe was discovered in a Rural Electric Cooperative mailer.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. We love this recipe and have made it again, and again this fall and winter. I used fresh pumpkin puree since we had it on hand, and used 1tsp of spice. Also increased the apples and nuts to 1C each making sure they were chopped small enough for my waffle maker but still large enough to taste in each bite of waffle. These are absolutely delicious!!! This has become my husband's favorite breakfast. Since there are only 2 people in our household we freeze the remaining waffles and reheat in the microwave or toaster and they still delicious. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe!
