Chewy Apple Waffles

  • Serves 3
  • Prep in 5 minutes
  • Cook in 10 minutes
Waffles have never been my favourite, in actual fact until I started making my own I didn’t really understand why people raved about them SO much.

I mean sure they’re crispy on the outside but that tends to be it, they’re kind of meh from there on out.

Oh how wrong I was my friends, oh how wrong indeed.

The inherent issue with pre-made waffles is that they are very superficial in terms of what they contain, when I say a crisp exterior is all I got from them that pretty much sums up the level of thought & ingenuity their creators have gone to. They are merely there to convey whatever toppings you choose to adorn them with to your mouth & that’s about it.

But that totally undervalues the potential of what a waffle can be as a thing. As the following recipe will hopefully show!


Key Facts

  • Family Friendly
  • Freezer Friendly
  • High Protein, High Fibre, No Sugar
  • Prep Ahead


  • 1/2 cup apple purée

  • 2 organic eggs

  • 1/4 cup cassava flour or ground oats (blitz in a food processor to form a fine flour)

  • 1 heaped tablespoon tapioca flour (or use ground almonds)

  • 2 tablespoons milk of choice (I use Plenish cashew milk)

  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  • To Serve – extra apple purée, yoghurt, tahini or nut butter, berries, pomegranate, apple or banana slices + nuts & seeds.


  1. 01

    Preheat your waffle iron, I use a VonShef 3in1 & find it brilliant.

  2. 02

    Blend all the waffle ingredients to a smooth batter (if using oats rather than cassava flour then leave the batter to sit for 5-10 minutes before using, giving it a good mix at the end of that time) then spoon in 1/4 cup per waffle.

  3. 03

    Cook for 7-8 mins & keep warm in a low oven whilst you repeat with the rest of the mix.

  4. 04

    Serve with your toppings.
