Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Delicious breakfast treat! Full of apples, and that pumpkin pie spice is a nice addition too.
3 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk, warmed
3/4 cup milk, warmed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose flour is fine too)
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup toasted pecans (completely optional)
powdered sugar to sift on top
1. Preheat waffle iron. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, milk and butter. Stir in apple. In another bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, spice, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; whisk until smooth (some small lumps are okay).
2. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons pecans (if using) onto waffle iron. Pour about 2/3 cup batter onto surface. Cook waffles until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Keep warm in 200°F. oven while cooking the remaining waffles.
3. Serve with warmed maple syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
*Extra waffles freeze nicely. Just warm them up another day by popping them in the toaster.
