Ingredients

  • FOR THE SPICED APPLES
  • 3 tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 6 Apples, Fuji
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, ground or grated
  • 1/4 tsp Salt, kosher
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • FOR THE WAFFLES
  • 1 3/4 c All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt, kosher
  • 2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 3/4 cup Milk, or nut milk
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Butter and plain yogurt, for serving

Instructions

  • MAKE THE SPICED APPLES
  • Melt the butter in a large, non-stick saute pan
  • Peel the apples and cut into 2 or 3 large pieces around the core. Cut each large piece into 1/4" slices and add to the melted butter.
  • Add the sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, nutmeg and salt and stir to combine.
  • Cover with a lid and cook on medium high heat until the apples sizzle and release their juices, about 5-7 minutes.
    Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 12-15 minutes more.
  • MAKE THE WAFFLES
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl
  • In another medium-sized bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla.
  • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir gently just to combine. Lumps are okay.
  • Add the batter to your pre-heated waffle maker that is lightly sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook in the waffle maker according to manufacturers directions. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve with warmed spiced apples and a dollop of plain yogurt, if desired

Notes

  • If you plan to make these on a Sunday morning, pre-measure the waffle ingredients the night before so they're ready to go in the morning. This batter comes together quickly, and you'll be making waffles in no time.
  • The spiced apples can be made a couple days in advance, and they keep well in an airtight container in the fridge.  Re-heat them in a sauce pan with a tablespoon of water to loosen them up, or for a minute or two in the microwave.
  • Make these waffles gluten free by subbing the all-purpose flour for a gluten free blend, like Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. 
  • Use dairy-free milk if you like!  I love toasted coconut almond milk blend, but use your favorite!
