Homemade Apple Waffles recipe uses TWO whole Apples, ONLY OATS and the batter is made easily in a blender. Use coconut oil instead of butter for a healthy weekend breakfast or frozen for a busy morning.
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.

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 ½ large apples to get 2 cups chopped apples.
Chop apples to ¼ inch dice for a uniform texture.

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.
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 ¼-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.
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!
Frequently asked questions:
Place cooked waffles on a wire rack lined baking sheet and keep in a 200° F oven, until serving time. The wire rack will ensure air circulation around the waffles.
One waffle contains only 90 calories, 3 grams saturated fat, 4 grams sugar and 2 grams protein.
