  • 4 Tbsp salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 + 1/4 C milk of choice (I use 2% or whole dairy milk)
  • 3/4 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 + 3/4 C whole wheat flour


  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, eggs, unsweetened applesauce, milk, and maple syrup until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Slowly whisk in cinnamon, baking powder, and whole wheat flour until a batter has been formed.
  • Cook the waffles. Using a ⅓ cup measuring cup, scoop waffle batter into the center of the waffle iron, close the lid, and cook per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.*


How to store and reheat waffles:
  • In the refrigerator: You can store cooked waffles in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
  • In the freezer: You can store cooked waffles in the freezer for 2-3 months. Prior to freezing, make sure to cool your waffles completely and then place cooled waffles into a ziplock bag or freezer safe container. Placing a piece of parchment paper between the waffles will help them from sticking together.
  • How to reheat: Reheat refrigerated or frozen waffles in a toaster, toaster oven, or in the microwave.
