Graham Flour Apple Waffles

Graham flour is similar to whole wheat flour, but it's more coarsely ground and contains all of the germ, oil and fiber from the whole wheat kernel. It's super nutritious and flavorful and it works perfectly in this waffle recipe. I just picked apples yesterday, so I was excited to start making recipes with them. These waffles are great to make at the beginning of the week and keep in the freezer to reheat in the toaster. I serve mine with diced apple, a little butter and a drizzle of syrup on top, but these would also be delicious with a drizzle of melted nut butter and a dash of cinnamon.


1. Preheat waffle maker.
2. Combine graham flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.



3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, half-and-half and vanilla together. Add to the dry ingredients along with the melted butter and diced apples and stir until just combined.



4. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Working in batches, scoop the batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes for each).




5. Place waffles onto serving plates and top with butter and diced apple. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
