This time of year calls for a ton of apple inspired recipes. From pies to tarts to baked oats and then some. I love it all. You really can’t go wrong with any of these. You can even make some really healthy apple inspired treats, like these Vegan Apple Pie Waffles. If anything, enjoying a crisp and delicious apple anytime of the year is just fabulous. I try to keep apples on hand all the time because they are quick and easy snacks, go well with peanut butter, and are nutritious.
Team Waffles or Pancakes?
Sometimes I’m not really sure if I’m team pancakes or team waffles. I guess it really depends on what type of mood I’m in that day. One thing that I do like about waffles is that they’re just so easy to throw into the waffle maker and I don’t have to worry about watching them, flipping them, or accidentally flinging them off the stove by accident. Unfortunately that’s happened more times than I’d like to say. We call them “fallen soldiers” and as long as they don’t have chocolate then the pup gets to enjoy them.
These Vegan apple pie waffles are super tasty and can be saved for a few days. I like to make a big batch and have them a few days in a row for breakfast. I figure if I’m making them I might as well make the most of it. You can also store them in the freezer and take them out when you’re ready to use them.
The great thing about waffles is the little pockets are just meant to hold syrup. I usually sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top, smother in syrup, and devour. Sometimes I even leave some for the kids. Kidding! They’re the main reason I make them. They’re easy to grab and heat up on busy mornings when everyone is running out of the house.
In case you’re team waffles, I love my mini waffle maker by DASH. I have a couple different DASH products but this is the one I use the most by far.Print
