Double, triple, quadruple this recipe. Waffles warm great in the low setting on the toaster or a few seconds in the microwave. They also freeze very well! I make a ton and freeze them for weekday lunches (assuming everyone doesn't eat them all first!)

Whole Wheat Waffles
  • 2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, Plain
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
Apple Cinnamon Syrup
  • 4 medium apples, cored, peeled and diced or sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 stick
  • 1 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup organic apple cider
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Heat a large skillet or Dutch Oven on top of the stove over medium heat. Melt butter in the skillet and add apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir the apples until they are well coated in butter and cinnamon. Add maple syrup and apple cider. Stir to combine and cover the pan or skillet and allow the apples to cook until fork tender. This will take 5-7 minutes, depending on how thickly you sliced your apples. When apples are fork tender, take the cover off the pan, reduce the heat to medium low and allow the syrup to reduce until thick. (If it gets a little too thick, you can add a little additional apple cider to thin it out again.)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine white whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until well combined. In a second mixing bowl, combine eggs, plain Greek yogurt, milk, vanilla extract and melted butter. Whisk until uniform. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Pour waffle batter into your waffle iron based on your waffle iron's recommendations. We have used this recipe in our Belgian waffle maker and our regular waffle maker and it works beautifully in both.
  4. Stack cooked waffles, cover with apples and syrup. Eat warm and enjoy!
