I know it’s a little early for apple recipes, but here in Tennessee some of the early varieties of apples are already ready for harvest. My parents brought me some fresh apples last week when they came to visit and I’ve been eating them all week. Apples and green beans are like my two favorite foods in the world – I’m weird, I know =). I think it’s also pretty obvious from the number of recipes on the blog that I like waffles too, so an apple waffle sounded like a delicious combination to me…and it was! Jordan and I both loved these waffles. They aren’t as crispy as some waffles, but I think if you wanted a crispier waffles adding more oil (or some butter) would probably do the trick. Since these waffles are yeasted waffles, they do require about a 30 minute rest period, but don’t let this stop you from making them. Just do like I did, mix up your batter and go for a run. Then, when you get back, all you have to do is pour the batter into the waffle iron =). Enjoy!


Apple Pie Waffles
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup and 2 tbsp water

1 tsp active dry yeast
1 medium apple, grated
1/2 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup skim milk
1 egg white

1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, wheat bran, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the water and honey. Sprinkle the yeast over the surface, and let stand for about 5 minutes to dissolve.
2. Toss grated apple in dry ingredients. Add yeast mixture, milk, and egg white and stir until combined.  Cover, and let rest for about 30 minutes.
3. Heat the waffle iron, and coat lightly with cooking spray. Spoon batter into preheated waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions. Makes 3 waffles.
