Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Thanks for joining us for Apple Week!  All apples, all week long.

Today, I’m sharing a new favorite recipe in our house – perfect for a crisp, fall Saturday morning: Apple Cinnamon Waffles. 

Whole Wheat Flour.
Delightful Cinnamon.
Sweet & Tangy Apple.

That’s my kind of breakfast. 

Apple Cinnamon Waffles – Adapted from Kim Klietz


  • 1 C white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 T sugar or 1 tsp. honey
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C milk
  • 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 C finely diced apple


In a large bowl, mix together 1 C white whole wheat flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 T sugar (if you use honey, add it to the wet ingredients), 1/8 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. cinnamon.  Stir well. 

In a second bowl, combine 1 egg, 1/4 C applesauce, 1 C milk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. olive oil and 1 C finely chopped apple.  Stir well.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.  Batter will be fairly thick. 

Spoon or pour (we use a ladle) about 1/4 C waffle mix into a hot, slightly greased waffle maker.  Make according to your machine’s directions. 

Makes about 10 waffles. 

Serve with applesauce and maple syrup. 

To freeze extras, cool to room temperature.  Then, flash freeze on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes.  Place into a freezer-friendly storage container.  Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven to get a nice crunch. 



  1. Man, you are always one step ahead of me! I was planning on doing an apple week later this month and my lunch week was right after yours as well! As always, I think you are awesome and love your recipes!

  2. These look delicious!

    Sadly, our local apple farm isn't doing "Pick Your Own" this year because of the harsh weather that threatened the crops. :( But, you better believe I'll be buying some even though we can't enjoy picking them ourselves!

    What's your favorite variety? I love Cortland and Empire!

    1. We love cortland, empire, regent, harlson, and of course, Honey Crisp!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
