Apple & Cinnamon Spelt Waffles
It’s easy to get the kids in the kitchen when it’s waffle time!
From measuring out and mixing up the batter, to pouring just the right amount into the machine. Watching for when it starts steaming which means it’s time to check if the waffle has gone golden brown and ready to eat!
Our waffle machine makes a gorgeous big flower which can be broken into seperate little hearts (any leftover hearts I put in their lunch boxes the next day topped with a bit of seed butter and raw honey)
The toppings are similar to pancakes – maple syrup, berries, banana, or whatever fruit is in season. I like mine with a big dollop of yogurt too. Yum!
Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.
1.5 cups spelt flour
¼ cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 large apple, grated
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons of melted butter
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl and set aside
Combine milk, egg, butter, apple and vanilla and add to dry ingredients
Blend well until moistened and adjust thickness to your liking by adding more milk or water (we like them thin and on the crispy side)
Drop ¼ to 1/3 cup batter into centre of heated waffle iron and distribute it around the iron with a spatula
Cook for approx 3 minutes or longer if you like them darker
If it removes easily from iron then it is ready
ful life tip:
If you don’t have any coconut flour replace with spelt or buckwheat flour
Apple and spices can be omitted for a more basic batter
Or experiment by replacing apple with 2 ripe bananas and some pumpkin spice
Have a flavourful day!
