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.

    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
    I used egg beaters and it turned out very well. - 10/30/07
    Saw that a lot of people thought they were heavy, I separated the eggs and beat the whites to stiff peaks and folded them in, also used applesauce, and white whole wheat flour, I think the applesauce added necessary liquid. Great taste! Liked that the servings were clear amounts! - 2/13/15
    These weren't a big hit with my kids, but my husband and I LOVED them! We added nuts and a light syrup to make it a meal. - 3/6/08

    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
    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
    My family didn't care for the apple in these waffles. May make again w/o the apple. - 7/20/08
    A little heavy in the texture, but very tasty and filling. - 12/16/07
    Great! Batter was very stiff, so I added a bit of nonfat milk. Size of eggs might make a difference, also. - 11/25/07

    next time I will sub 4 egg whites instead of whole eggs, and Splenda blend for the brown sugar. - 11/5/07
    Just made it! My brother is in love. Thank you! - 10/30/07

    I stirred 1/4 cup milk and the pumpkin into the eggs, then folded the liquid and apples (warmed in the microwave) into the dry ingredients. The batter was still thick enough it needed to be spread out on the waffle iron with a spatula. Tastes good.
    DH says they taste like pumpkin pie in a waffle. - 11/8/14
    I made these yesterday. The whole house smelled like pumpkin pie baking. I used whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of applesauce as I do not like apple chunks. Also added 1/4 cup of non-fat milk to make the batter a little easier to pour onto my waffle maker. These are truly yummy and very filling. - 9/30/14
    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
    I might try this with mashed banana instead of pumpkin. 090120 - 1/20/09
