Apple Cinnamon Waffles
Let me start off by saying, I'm totally crushing on my waffle maker. I got one on amazon for only $11! I love how versatile it is! You can put anything in it - brownie batter, cookie dough, pancake/waffle mix - I've even made plantain "tortillas" in the waffle maker!
Alright, on to the main event.
Since making the decision to cut out gluten, grains, sugars, dairy, soy and alcohol (more on that later...) I was looking for a good waffle recipe that is versatile and it's too sweet.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Makes 4 large waffles
1 tbsp of baking soda
1 cup of almond flour
1/2 cup of unsweetened applesause (or, a 1 small - medium sized apple, diced)
I love Trader Joe's brand because there are no added sugars and plus, it's so much easier to dump in some applesauce then dice up an apple, but I've done it both ways. I do love the texture the chopped apples give the waffles - but feel free to make it your OWN!
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
pinch of salt
Coconut oil for greasing the waffle iron
Pure Maple syrup
Grease waffle iron with coconut oil.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth and no lumps remain.
Spoon about a 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron. Make sure you don't use too much batter, otherwise it will leak out over the sides and not cook evenly. This may take some trial and error to get the perfect amount of batter in every nook and cranny, but making sure the batter doesn't overflow (trust me, I've been there)!
Cook each waffle for approximately 3 minutes until browned and crispy on the edges.
Serve warm, drizzled with maple syrup - YUM!
(You could also add chopped apples and walnuts on top too, for an extra special treat!)
