apple cinnamon waffles

  1. Preheat waffle iron and grease if needed.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and oil. Add in vanilla and milk, gently whisking to combine.
  3. Add in flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and apples; combine with spatula until no lumps are present. Depending on your flour blend you may need a touch more milk here OR a tiny bit more flour. Batter should be somewhat thick but not drippy.
  4. Use 1/4 cup to pour batter into waffle iron; cook on low-medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until waffles are lightly golden. Every waffle iron is different so cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Keep in warm oven (about 160ºF) until ready to serve.
