Well, it took me two attempts to get this recipe ‘right,’ but I’m happy with how this latest attempt turned out. I made these Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Waffles for lunch recently (because we had extra time) and all three of my kids each ate several ‘triangles’ and asked for more when they finished. That’s how I can tell a recipe is a winner (when they ask for more). 😉
Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Waffles
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 4 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup organic whole milk
- 1/2 cup 1-ingredient organic apple juice
- 3 eggs (local, pastured is ideal)
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
Whisk together dry ingredients. Mix together wet ingredients. (I usually warm up my milk a little so the coconut oil doesn’t harden when mixing.) Combine the two. Spray hot waffle iron with an olive oil sprayer. Pour about 2/3 cup of batter onto waffle maker and cook according to your maker’s directions. (Makes 4 Belgian waffles.)
If you have any leftover, you can freeze them. To warm them up, I simply put them in the oven until they’re nice and toasty again.
This is the waffle maker I own:
It’s a very inexpensive model, but it gets the job done and I’ve been very happy with the results every time.
