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

    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

    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

  • 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

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • 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

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • 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

  • Didn't like the texture - way too heavy and dense. Might try with less pumpkin? - 11/12/13

  • Very thick and I had to add applesauce just to make it 'spreadable' on the waffle iron. Did not find there was enough spice in the waffles and way too heavy. I like the idea of it, but they need something to make them lighter. Would not bother making them again. - 1/10/13

  • I made this wheat free by changing the whole wheat flour for a rice flour blend, cup for cup. I choose to grate the apple instead of chop it. They turned out very well. Will definitly make again. - 11/12/12

  • Made these this morning. We loved them. I did add about 1/4 cup nonfat mild to make it a little more spreadable. A serving of 2 waffles was plenty to keep us going all morning. I made a double batch and will be popping them in the microwave or toaster for a quick breakfast. Thank you. - 11/4/12

  • I made these with flaxseed instead of eggs, and a banana instead of the apples. They were amazing! While mixing all the ingredients, I noticed it was going to be way too thick, so I added a splash of soymilk (1/8-1/4 cup). That helped with the consistency. Thank you for a wonderful recipe! - 5/28/12

  • I doubled the batch and substituted 1/2 c white flour, and applesauce. The waffles turned out heavy compared to the "unhealthy" waffles I'm used to making, but they tasted good. The kids loved them with a small amount of butter and syrup. I topped mine with 1/4 c applesauce. I'll add milk next time. - 12/2/11

  • Will definately make again! I didn't have access to ww pastry flour (I will order online for next time), so I used pancake mix and I subbed 1/2 c. unsweet applesauce for the apple. I used a little bit of milk to thin it out, I'll use applejuice next time just to give some more apple flavor. Delish!! - 10/31/10

  • Okay. Used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour; still the dominate flavor was whole wheat, not pumpkin, cinnamon or apple. Very filling, didn't live up to the ratings for flavor. - 11/1/09

    This reminds me of eating AAANNE'S Spiced pumpkin pancakes with apples. I made her pancakes and cut up 1/2 a small apple and cooked it in the microwave it came out to 166 cal, 1 fat, 35 carbs, and 6 prot. YUM! Good idea, though. - 1/20/09
