Whole Wheat Applesauce Waffles

Servings 4


  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup arrow root powder or corn starch is OK too, if you can’t find arrow root
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 apple shredded with a box grater (do not include seeds or stem)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup milk I used unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat up your waffle iron while you prepare the batter. Add all the dry ingredients (first six listed) to a medium size mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Then add the wet ingredients (all remaining ingredients) and stir until well combined. Then stir in the shredded apple.
  2. Some waffle irons require a little non-stick cooking spray before you begin making your waffles and others don’t. I trust you know what yours needs, so either use that or don’t. Pour about 1/2 to 2/3 cup batter into the waffle iron, cook until done (most irons have a light that goes off when the waffle is done). Repeat until you’ve cooked all the waffles.
