RECIPE: Apple Walnut Waffles
WINNIPEG, MB – Is there anything better than a lazy morning with a warm breakfast and a bottomless cup of coffee? Most mornings in my house are a bit on the hectic side. Before I run out the door with my coffee in hand, I am lucky if I had a chance to scarf down a quick bowl of Mini Wheats. Less than inspiring, right? This is why I love making weekend breakfasts a bit more special. My favourite breakfast to serve on a rain Saturday morning is warm and fragrant Apple Walnut Waffles.
This recipe is fuss-free, easily doubled and will make you vow to never buy boxed mix again. While my favourite apples to use in this recipe are Honeycrisp, they are often quite pricey so I opt for a crisp Ambrosia. Cut the apples into small dices pieces to ensure they bake properly in the waffle iron. And unlike apple pie, there is no need to peel the apples if you aren’t trusting your knife skills first thing in the morning.
Serve these guys with butter and a generous pouring of maple syrup and you have yourself an all-Canadian breakfast that is sure to start you off on the right foot.
