Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Spoiler:  This post ends with waffles.

As for the beginning:  I read somewhere that a clean and organized desk may contribute to healthy eating and conventionality.

I have an extremely messy desk.  Actually, I retract that.  I have an extremely messy life, so I'm assuming that means I don't follow conformity, am super creative and lackluster about rules.  Just reading between the lines.

The reality is that I spend most of my time doing work sitting cross-legged on the floor, which probably just means I'm in kindergarten.   And if that's the case, let's switch to waffles and syrup.  Child-like things.  Because I'm unconventional and I can do that.

It's an apple and cinnamon sort of thing, perfect for the things you're about to do amongst falling leaves.  We're being kids, after all.  Waffles need something special, like say, cinnamon, applesauce and just a pinch of sugar.

In short:  It's what would happen if James Taylor wrote a song about New Hampshire.

Apple Cinnamon Waffles

(yields 6 waffles)


2 cups whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

pinch of all-spice

1 whole egg

1/2 cup applesauce

1 1/2 cups milk

waffle iron


Preheat waffle iron and combine all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Beat in egg with a whisk, then stir in the applesauce and the milk.  Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray and use a small ladle to pour waffle batter on top and cook until golden brown or until the waffle maker beeps.

Repeat this step until all the batter has been used up.  When all are cooked, serve with butter and warm maple syrup.  Enjoy!
