Apple Waffles

"I love an indulgent treat as much as the next person but sometimes a healthier option is just as satisfying. These apple sugar free waffles are a great treat and the kiddies love them too!"

Recipe Card



  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 apples

Apple Slices


  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon



  • 10 ounces double cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar


  • Step 1

    First, pre-heat the oven to 140c. Then thinly slice an apple into slices (you could use a mandolin) and place on a baking tray. Bake for 45 minutes turning after 25 minutes. Leave to one side until needed.

  • Step 2

    Now peel and chop your apples. Then place them in a saucepan with a drop of water and stew over a low heat until soft and mushy. Then blend into a puree.

  • Step 3

    Next, make your waffle batter. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix. In a new bowl, add the eggs and milk and whisk, then scoop in 2/3rds of the apple puree. Apple is the natural sweetener here and it works wonderfully as a flavour. Combine the wet and the dry ingredients and whisk until lovely and smooth.

  • Step 4

    Now make your cream. Whisk the double cream with the vanilla and sugar until it forms lovely soft peaks.

  • Step 5

    Heat the waffle iron and when to temperature pour in a ladle of batter, cook for around 4 minutes or to a lovely brown crisp colour.

  • Step 6

    Plate up the waffles and top with the cream, left over apple puree and apple slices. ENJOY!
