Waffle Wednesday

(Healthy) Apple Waffles
I love waffles, and I have probably made that clear since a dedicate an entire day just to waffles. Although I am not a big fan of cooked apples(or cooked tomatoes) the same way i don't like apple pie because it has lots of cooked apples. This is why I love this waffles recipe, it has cooked apples but not in a weird, mushy,gooey way. And they're healthy too, although they taste way to healthy if there cold, or had been frozen in advance. But you can always but lots of butter and maple syrup and their bound to taste delicious then, although that eliminates the healthy part of them too. I don't even remember where I got this recipe from, years ago while I was watching the news I think, either way I recommend adding a little sugar, or butter this is really the 'bare' recipe. These are super easy to make too!


  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 large apples (fuji,granny smith or whatever grows in your backyard)
Pre-heat you waffle iron.
1. Combine all the dry ingredients, the cornmeal,buckwheat,brown rice flour,baking soda&powder and salt in a bowl and mix for just to combine( this should be less than 1/2 a minute)
2. Add the eggs, yogurt,vanilla, and milk and mix until thoroughly incorporated.(it will be a thick dough)
3. Using the wide teeth on a cheese grater, grate the apples and add to the waffle batter, stir to combine.
4. Cook in you waffle maker for 3-4 minutes.

You probably won't be needing to eat more than one of these-they are super dense, next time I might try making these with beaten egg whites to lighten it up.(and maybe add some butter to the batter.) They don't taste too good cold, especially if you make them super-healthy,without maple syrup or butter.
