My children love a tall stack of waffles or pancakes drenched in maple syrup on weekend mornings. Some of our favorites include these Belgian waffles, Eggless waffles, Buttermilk waffles or Gluten Free Blender Waffles.

These are softer unlike traditional waffles using oats, due the large amount of apples and is perfect in soaking up the maple syrup <— Perfect on a crisp fall morning with the fall fruit.

My favorite part is that you dump all ingredients into a blender, blend and ready to go! How easy is that? Apple is added in two forms – ground along with the batter and then added chopped for texture.

I love them because, the leftovers freeze amazingly well for a quick grab and go weekday breakfast.

Expert tips:

Color – Cook waffles until they get a deep golden brown – It took about 6 minutes in my waffle iron.

Make it healthier – Replace butter with coconut oil.

Types of apples to use: Fuji, Honey crisp, Gala, Jonagold, Braeburn and Golden delicious are all great options. If you like the tartness from Granny smith, then you could use that as well.

This recipe will need about 2 medium or 1 and 1/2 large apples to get 2 cups chopped apples.

Chop apples to 1/4 inch dice for a uniform texture.

Use gluten free oats to make it gluten free

Blender – Any blenders like Vitamix or Nutri Bullet can be used.

How many waffles does this recipe make?

It honestly depends on the type of waffle maker used. I used Cuisinart 4-slice Belgian waffle maker, and was able to make about 11 waffles.

Variations:

Replace cinnamon with vanilla extract.

Stir in some finely chopped walnuts into the batter for added crunch.

Use other fall spices like ground ginger, nutmeg and cloves.

Serving suggestion / Toppings

We love these waffles from scratch with dab of softened salted butter and maple syrup.

Other delicious yet indulgent toppings might include whipped cream, caramel sauce or sautéed apples.

Here is a quick recipe to make sautéed apples:

Slice apples into thin slices (about 1/4-inch), cook in a skillet with some butter, brown sugar and cinnamon for a few minutes, over medium heat, until they are crisp tender. Spoon topping over waffles along with the sauce.

Freezing instructions:

Place cooled waffles in a ziplock bag and freeze for several weeks. My favorite way to re heat them is to pop one or two in a bread toaster, until hot and crisp. Great for weekday mornings!

Instructions

1. Add all ingredients along with 1 cup chopped apples (reserve 1 cup for later use) into a blender and blend until smooth (it took about 2 minutes in my blender).

Pour batter into a bowl and let rest for about 5 minutes while you preheat waffle iron (this helps the batter to thicken slightly).

2. Stir remaining 1 cup chopped apples into the batter. Grease waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray.

3. Pour about 1/3 cup batter into each waffle plate and cook according to manufactures' instructions until deep golden. (I cooked for 6 minutes in my waffle iron). Remove waffles ( these tend to be on the softer side and without gluten, so remove gently) onto a wire rack and repeat with remaining batter. 

Serve waffles hot with a dab of salted butter and maple syrup.
