Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    1.5 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 organic eggs
    2 Tbsp organic cane sugar (or brown sugar)
    1/2 cup pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)
    1 medium apple of choice, finely chopped and divided

Directions

Preheat waffle iron.

Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix eggs with sugar. Add to the dry mixture (note that the mixture will be very dry at this stage). Fold in the pumpkin and half of the chopped apple until well combined into a thick, moist batter.

Add batter to waffle iron--about 1/4 cup batter per 4-inch waffle--and cook until done. Garnish cooked waffles with the remaining apple and top with real maple syrup. Enjoy!

Makes about six 4-inch waffles. Serving = 2 Waffles.

    I've made this for pancakes and I subbed overripe bananas for the sugar and added ground flaxseed: delicious and even better for you! - 11/16/07

    I used 1/2 c. applesauce instead of the whole apple. It was suitable for my family's health issues - high blood pressure, diabetes, vegetarian and picky teenager & toddler. We love them! - 5/12/09

    These were great and one serving was super filling! I don't like chunks of apple in things so I used 1/2 of unsweetened applesauce for the apple and they turned out great! - 1/28/09

    My husband said it wasn't waffle but a "little apple pie cooked in the waffle iron". I really liked these BUT I used them to try out my brand new Waring Pro Professional waffle maker wedding gift and the batter seemed too thick for this application). Tasted great, filling, and plenty sweet - 11/8/08

    I used regular whole wheat flour and it was a little heavy, but still good. I may add a little milk next time. - 12/19/07

    These were good. My girls liked them but thought they had to much apple. I doubled the recipe and put a lg apple in. I did use an 1/8 c soy milk. I will try again with a little less apple next time. The girls said try again, which is a good sign:) - 1/21/09

    Wow!! This was totally awesome! It's like pumpkin bread. I ate it as desert with a little smart balance on it instead of maple syrup. - 11/8/07

    Great! Batter was very stiff, so I added a bit of nonfat milk. Size of eggs might make a difference, also. - 11/25/07

    Very heavy and not a favorite here. I like the idea of this recipe but feel the recipe is too thick. Only able to make 4 waffles, maybe should have added some milk? - 1/7/12

    Good flavour but not spectacular. They were quite substantial and filling. Not sure if I'll make them again or not. - 6/21/09

  • Even with adding milk and applesauce the batter was still too dense. It took so long for them to cook it would have been easier baking them as muffins. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! - 5/31/14

  • I really liked the taste of these waffles, but I'm afraid the batter was so thick, I didn't get the proper serving size. I think the applesauce may be a huge help here. But they were awfully yummy! - 1/11/14

  • If you read the good reviews, the cooks altered the recipe. I made it as written and it was too thick to spread on the waffle iron and the test waffle was rubbery. Then I added some milk for consistency and they were little better. I think this needs applesauce not apples and mine was a juicy apple - 11/24/13

  • The batter is super thick and can be difficult to spread over the waffle iron. I used applesauce rather than chopped apples. Still, I wound up adding about 1/4 cup of water to thin the batter to get it to spread. Next time, I'll add more water, as the waffles turned out thick and rather doughy. - 11/18/13

  • I made these this past weekend, and they were so delicious! I will make a double batch next time, because my waffle maker is big and only made 4, good-sized waffles. - 10/9/13
