Lets celebrate September with Apple Pie Waffle! September is the month of apples. Bakers and grannies star to bake apple pies and the kitchen starts to emanate a sweet aroma that clothes all the house. This Apple Pie Waffle has the same effect: their sweet aroma reach all the house and warms you up. I topped them with an Almond Granola from Nature’s Path. I also topped them with soft spiced thinly sliced apples and a generous drizzle of peanut butter. Besides, I topped sprinkled homemade coconut shred! They are totally organic and natural!
Some of my relatives gifted me a coconut. My father broke the coconut and we drank the water which is high in electrolytes and ideal for hydration. Then, patiently, I peeled the coconut and cut the white meat carefully. I put them in the food processor and pulse until grated. I toasted them a little bit in the pan, wait for it to cool and then store it in a bowl in the refrigerator.
For the granola topping, I heat the granola with the coconut shreds until aromatic and crispy.
This waffle is wonderful because it has many textures (soft, crispy, meaty) and flavors (sweet, caramelized, salty).
Ingredients: yield: 1 person
1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/2tsp baking powder 2tsp brown sugar apple puree a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg 1/2tsp vanilla
For the apples: 1/3cup water 2 cloves 1/4 of thin sliced apples
Additional toppings: granola, coconut shreds, peanut butter
Procedure: Turn on the waffle iron on maximum heat and spray coconut oil.
Then, in a bowl mix all of the ingredients for the waffle with the apple puree until waffle consistency. Now, pour all of the batter in the waffle machine and let cook for five minutes each side until done. Transfer the waffle in the serving dish. Now, cook the apples in a small sauce pan until tender (about 3-5minutes) and add them to the waffles. Then, heat the granola with the coconut shreds until crispy and aromatic and ad them to the waffle.
Finally add the peanut butter.
