Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • For best results, use a tart apple like Granny Smith for the recipe.
  • Make sure to peel the apple before grating it for the batter.

  • Substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour - Almond flour is a healthier alternative to all-purpose flour as it is gluten-free and contains more nutrients. It also has a nutty flavor that can enhance the flavor of the waffles.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter - Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter as it is lower in saturated fat and contains beneficial fatty acids. It also has a light coconut flavor which will add a delicious twist to the waffles.

Cranberry Apple Waffles Replace the grated apple with grated cranberry and reduce the sugar to 2 teaspoons. Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg to the dry ingredients. Increase the melted butter to 6 tablespoons.

Maple Syrup and Whipped Cream: This classic combination is the perfect accompaniment to the Cinnamon Apple Waffles. The sweetness of the maple syrup and the creaminess of the whipped cream will complement the cinnamon and apple flavors perfectly.

Fresh Berries: Fresh berries are a great accompaniment to the Cinnamon Apple Waffles. The tartness of the berries will balance out the sweetness of the waffles, while the vibrant colors will add a beautiful presentation to the dish.


Q: How long should the waffles bake?

A: Bake the waffles until they are golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Q: What temperature should the waffle maker be set to?

A: Preheat the waffle maker to medium heat (around 375°F - 400°F).

We loved these waffles. To combat the "soggy waffle" syndrome, i put them on a rack to cool off a bit after taking them out of the waffle iron. They kept their crispiness that way, and then served them with a dab of butter and a good drizzle of Dienia's Publix Apple Cider Syrup warmed up. Oh-my-goodness, simply amazing!

If you like apples this is a must try! Delicious, and something different for a change. I sprinkled chopped pecans on ours at serving time.

Super delicious waffles! My family devoured them at one sitting. Next time I will double the batch. We found them just right using granny smith apples.

Waffles happens to be one of my husbands favorite meals, so seeing he's been working so hard, thought I'd make these for him as breakfast for dinner. Not only he, but my children and I also loved these waffles!! Love the grated apple, which adds lots of goodness. I added a little extra cinnamon, but next time, I think I'll add eve a bit more. These will be made again. Thank you dieniab for sharing. Made it for PickMe Tag.

This is a delightful recipe! To combat the softer waffle, I put the grated apple between of layers of paper towel and pressed it down to remove the moisture and the waffles turned out nice and crispy. DH and I love these waffles which I know will see repeats. Thanks for sharing Dienia!
