Cinnamon and Apple Waffles

Pancakes are great, but we can’t forget about their close cousin, waffles. If you own a waffle iron and thought you would never use it again and that it would just keep on accumulating dust, then this recipe is for you! Granted, they are another one of those indulgences and not shy on the nut flours, but if you are one of those who would rather have some treats in moderation, then there is nothing wrong with them. The batter itself is low in sugar, but still tangy and delicious, thanks to the addition of the grated Granny Smith apple.

You can prepare the liquid portion of the batter and leave it in the refrigerator overnight so that they are ready very quickly the next morning for a lazy Sunday morning treat.

Top them off with some extra ghee and your favorite toppings like bananas, blueberries, strawberries, kiwis, honey, maple syrup, almond butter…
