Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Waffles

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

Ingredients:

  • 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.

Hi there! Here's a little info about me: I've been married to my husband for over 10 years and I'm a stay-at-home mom to our three young kids (a six year old daughter and four year old twin boys). As you might imagine, they keep me quite busy! In early 2013, we decided that we wanted to be a healthier family. To do this, we cut out all processed foods from our home and we now eat only REAL, whole foods. (When we're on vacation or at someone's house, we're not quite as strict.) We also try to exercise every day. Our goal is to raise healthy, happy kids...while maintaining our own health and happiness along the way! I hope you will follow along with us in our journey.

  1. These are delicious (and smell great, too!). Just finished a batch to stash in the freezer but had to sneak one “triangle” first. I had to add a little more apple juice to mine for some reason (I’ve made homemade waffles enough times to have a feel for the right batter consistency for my waffle maker. I might have been a little heavy-handed on the flour). No biggie – the extra juice just enhanced the apple cinnamon flavor. We’ve just been doing “plain” homemade waffles; this is a really nice twist especially because my son (and stepkids, now that I think about it) eats them plain w/o syrup. These don’t even need it!

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback on the recipe, Valerie! I don’t have a ton of experience making waffles, so it’s very possible that more apple juice is needed to begin with…good to know! My kids will often eat their waffles and pancakes plain as well, so it’s nice when there is enough flavor right in the waffle–especially if they take them in the car for breakfast (which we’ve done a few times here and there). 🙂
