Hearty Apple Cinnamon Waffles

When I get on a food kick, I tend to stick with it for a while. Lately, my kick has been waffles. It's the perfect breakfast to toast up and eat in a hurry before work. My first gluten-free waffles were delicious, but since they were made with white rice flour and coconut milk, they were better for a special weekend breakfast than for every day. So I set about to make a hearty "whole grain" waffle that I could feel good eating on a daily basis. The result? These Hearty Apple Cinnamon Waffles. They're high in fiber and low in saturated fats (but high in heart healthy fats). And with no added sugar, they're a great way to start the day!

I love the apple, cinnamon and walnuts in this recipe. It sounds wonderful. I might try something similar with my Belgian waffles. Thanks for linking to What can I eat that's GF.

From the very first time I made these waffles, my tastebuds fell in love! These are a definite staple in my freezer for quick breakfasts. And note, my boyfriend was never much of a waffle person, but just loves these :D I'd say this recipe is a keeper!

I also wanted to add, this past weekend I had some extra pumpkin and wanted to give it a go. I followed the recipe as is, used a small sweet potato and 1/4 cup of pumpkin. Let me just say, it added and extra punch of flavor to the already perfect recipe... :D
