My thoughts:

Autumn is the perfect time to cook with apples. I came up with this apple waffle recipe to have for dinner tonight. It has good apple flavor and since they are unsweetened, they taste great with butter and syrup. I left the skin on the apples so they have a slight greenish hue where the skin is peeking out. If this bothers you, peel the apples before grating.


  1. yum. I love waffles, but haven’t made any that contain fresh apples. looking forward to trying your recipe! (minus, unfortunately, the cute heart shapes 😉 )

  2. The heart shapes are lots of fun! My waffle maker caught on fire yesterday… it is no more. 🙁

  3. What cool heart shaped waffles!! I don’t know if it would visually bother me to have the skins on…more of a texture thing with moi

  4. Strangely, you couldn’t taste/feel the skins at all. We grated them very finely.

  5. What cute waffles! They look delicious and perfect for fall.

  6. Awesome, I love the heart shaped waffles. I was just looking for a waffle recipe as I found a penguin waffle iron lying around in some junk at home. Will be giving this go!

  7. Sounds so good but I don´t have a waffle maker. Is there a way to make this recipe into pancakes?

  8. Just follow the same recipe to make pancakes.

  9. I really like that you did these unsweetened. The green of the apple skin is beautiful! Such a cute waffle maker too–I want it. I think it’s time to replace the old trusty one my husband inherited from a past roomate!
