A real hit in the house at breakfast time. These waffles smell and taste like an apple pie. Serve with real maple syrup or even vanilla ice cream!

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, wheat bran, salt and apple pie spice. Set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the water and honey. Sprinkle the yeast over the surface, and let stand for about 5 minutes to dissolve.

  • When the yeast has dissolved, stir in the apples, applesauce, milk and egg whites until well blended. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients. Cover, and let rest for about 15 minutes.

  • Heat the waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon the waffle batter onto the iron in the amount recommended by the manufacturer. Close the iron, and cook for about 7 minutes, or until the steam stops coming out and the waffle can be easily removed. Continue with remaining batter.

These were really good. I'm following a balanced healthy diet plan. I switched the whole wheat flour for whole grain pastry flour with great results. Also took in to consideration small chunks of apples versus grated apples. I ended up with 5 waffles instead of 4. Per waffles 81 cal with a whooping 7.62 grams of fiber. I served this waffles with 2 tbsp of almond butter. Thank you so much for submitting this healthy recipe! Will make again. Read More

I would like to give this a 4.5. They are really good and I love that they are all whole grain and almost no fat! I do not have to feel guilty like I do with the waffles my hubbie makes with a whole stick of butter!!! I cut the apples in chunks as another reveiwer suggested and the apple taste and texture came through clearly and wonderfully. Note of warning -- these do take really long to cook. I thought 7 minutes sounded awfully long but it is about right. Also they are not light and fluffy like you might think of when you hear "waffles". These are almost another category of food. They are pretty heavy and almost crunchy. Very good! Thanks! Read More

Made so many changes to make it less healthy and more tasty. I don't know if I can legitimately rate the recipe. Changed to 3/4 recipe. Used 1 egg instead of 1.5 egg whites. Of the whole wheat flour substituted 1/4 c white flour. Added flaxseed meal about 1T. Added 1T brown sugar and used 1 t baking powder instead of yeast since didn't have any on hand. Added 2T butter. Didn't have any applesauce so just grated more apple and also used apples in small chunks total 2 medium apples. Didn't have any apple spice so used 1 t cinnamon. Instead of water I used skim milk upping the total to 1.5 c and mixed all wet ingredients at once. Maybe because of my changes the waffles didn't take THAT long to cook maybe 4-5 minutes. Tasted great and will make it again. Fluffy but not that crispy on the outside. Read More

I had difficulty substituting whole wheat flour for the regular flour. By adding the yeast I also noticed that the waffles came apart because they were "fluffy" rather than dense. It could be that there was too much moisture in the batter (too many apples?). I may consider trying again with only 1 apple and add a little extra sugar (or sugar substitute). Read More

These were a little too dense for my taste but I guess they were pretty healthy. Plus in my opinion waffles can never be THAT bad. Read More

I was a little disappointed. These were not awful not good either. They took forever to cook and didn't really have much flavor. Read More

The family really liked these even the kids that swore he wouldn't. I chopped the apples instead of shredding next time I will add more. Prep does take longer than expected but it was worth it! Read More

I quadrupled the recipe because I had lots of apples and I planned on freezing these and popping them in the toaster oven as needed. I also used flax seed meal in place of the wheat bran (all I had on hand) I needed to add a lot more water & milk because the batter was really thick. The recipe is good for what they are...a healthy waffle. If you make these expecting a light crunchy fluffy FATTENING waffle you will be disappointed. Having said all that after I made the first one I upped the spices. I wanted a lot more flavor. I didn't measure so these are guesstimates...keep in mind that I quadrupled the recipe from the beginning.. I added about 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon 1 Tablespoon of vanilla 3-5 teaspoons of cloves 3-4 teaspoons of allspice 2-3 teaspoons of nutmeg and another 1-2 teaspoons of salt. These tasted pretty darn decent for a healthy waffle. The apples make them really moist though and I think some people mistake the moistness for needing more cook time. If I have any extra apples in the future I need to use up I would probably make the recipe from this site for 'Whole Grain Waffles' and just shred up apples BUT they are also more fattening than these ones because these have no oil so keep that in mind. Try these if you are looking for a really really healthy waffle. Read More
