Ingredients

For the Cinnamon Sautéed Apples:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups apples peeled and chopped with the core removed
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the waffles:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 heaping cup hazelnut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3 whole eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ stick 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk room temperature
  • non-stick baking spray for waffle baker
  • maple syrup

Instructions

For the Cinnamon Sautéed Apples:

  • Using a heavy bottomed pan or pot, heat the butter over medium-high heat, once it starts to melt, add in the apples, sugar and cinnamon. Stir together and let cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until just tender.

For the waffles:

  • Using a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, hazelnut flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate mixing bowl, beat together eggs, vanilla and melted butter, and then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined.
  • Turn on and heat up your waffle baker. Spray with non-stick baking spray.
  • Pour the waffle batter into your waffle baker (use just the right amount to fill your waffle baker but not so much that it spills out). Close the waffle baker and cook according to your waffle baker's instructions (mine take roughly 3 minutes), or until the waffle is golden brown on both sides. Repeat until all of the waffle batter is used.
  • Top with some maple syrup and the cinnamon sautéed apples and enjoy immediately.
