YOU GUYS! I bought a waffle maker. I promised myself that when we had a bigger kitchen I would finally invest in one and the day as come..
I pretty much went waffle crazy and made waffles 3 days in a row when I got it. Can we also just discuss how I was scared to use it? Yes, like frightened to dirty the new and beautiful waffle maker. When I opened the box, it just looked so clean and perfect I didn’t want to ruin it. That of course ended the second I ate my first homemade fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, waffle.
I’m also pretty proud that I nailed these 6-ingredient Flourless Apple Cinnamon Waffles on the first try. These gems were my first waffle recipe ever.
They are super crispy thanks to the coconut oil and fluffy from the oatmeal and oat flour. I used Modern Oats Apple Walnut Oatmeal. I am obsessed with this flavor because it also has extra nuts and dried fruit in it too. Jord takes Modern Oats cups to work on the reg, they are so convenient and easy to prep when you need breakfast in a hurry. They are all nonGMO and gluten-free, plus they have such unique flavors like Coconut Almond and Vermont Maple. Tis the season for apples though so obviously we used their Apple Walnut flavor.
These Apple Cinnamon Waffles pair amazingly with caramelized apples (just sauté apples in a pan) and a generous maple syrup drizzle. I also saved a bunch and froze them and just defrosted them when I wanted to eat more.
Plus these waffles call for only 6 ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already. They take less than 15 minutes to make start to finish, I know you will love them!
- 2 eggs lightly beaten (flax or chia egg will work too)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (leave at room temperature so it isn't too cold)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (organic suggested and at room temperature)
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil melted and cooled
- 1 container Modern Oats Apple Walnut*
- 1 cup oat flour (oatmeal food processed in blender and i have no tested other flour!)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/3 cup walnuts or pecans
- *or 1/2 cup old fashioned oats but Modern Oats are preferred
- Mix all ingredients together in medium bowl
- Let batter sit for a few minutes so it thickens (you don't want it to be liquidy, if it is add a tad more oat flour)
- Heat your waffle maker and add about 3 tablespoons of batter to the maker at a time to make one waffle depending on the size of your waffle maker (i followed instructions that came with my waffle maker for how much batter to put in at once)
- Top with maple syrup, nut butter and your choice of fruit!
- *You can also freeze these or keep in fridge for 5 days*
