EASY Apple Waffles recipe! This healthy waffle recipe include fresh shredded apples and cinnamon! They are simple to make for a Fall breakfast! Serve with maple syrup on top! My family LOVES them!
Can you smell Fall in the air? Nope, me either. In NYC it’s in the high 80’s and it doesn’t feel like Fall is around the cornet yet. But that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend it’s Fall and make Easy Apple Waffles for breakfast! These waffles are delicious and use fresh apples in the batter!
Do you go apple picking? We love visiting the apple orchards in Upstate New York and discovering new apples (while picking them straight off the tree!). My other favorite part of visiting an apple orchard is the barn that sells apple donuts and fresh apple cider! Yum!
I love spending my morning apple picking and then enjoying doughy apple donuts for lunch! We always pick a big bag of apples, enough that we can make apple pancakes, apple brownies, apple chips, apple juice, apple pie cookies and these apple waffles with! I told you… we really love apples!
Apple Cinnamon Waffles
These Apple Waffles are super soft – just like donuts! The smell (and the taste) of the cinnamon baked into the waffles will definitely remind you of Fall. The recipe calls for 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, but you can use more or less depending on how much cinnamon you want. I find that 1 1/2 teaspoon is pretty perfect and isn’t overwhelming.
How to Freeze Waffles
I will often make a big batch of these apple waffles so we can enjoy them throughout Fall for breakfast and for dinner (who else loves breakfast for dinner?). To save them, I freeze them in freezer bags which will make them last for months. Because sometimes we have busy mornings, I can easily defrost a waffle for my daughter and know that she’s eating a good homemade breakfast.
My family love these waffles any time, but we especially love them for weekend breakfast! During the weekend, there’s no rush getting out of the door. Sometimes my toddler will even help me prepare the waffle batter! After that my family gobbles up these apple waffles!
