I love breakfast food. When I went gluten free a few years ago breakfast was the first thing I worried about. At first I thought I would be eating eggs and never again get to indulge in waffles. Thankfully, I was wrong!
These Apple Sauce Waffles with Apple Topping remind me of apple fritters. I like to cook the waffles until they have browned and are slightly crispy. This is important because if you take the waffles off the griddle too soon they will be soggy and you won’t get that delicious crispiness.
I mix up the batter for the waffles and begin cooking them first. Next, while I’m cooking waffles in the griddle I begin peeling and chopping the two apples needed for the topping.
By the time I’ve gotten the five sets of large waffles cooked the apple topping is lightly boiling on the stove to cook the apples down and brown the ghee.
I suggest serving the waffles and topping immediately while they are still hot. These apple sauce waffles and apple topping are a delicious way to start your day!Print

- Yield: 4 large waffles
- Category: Breakfast
1 cup Almond Flour
3/4 cup Tapioca Flour
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Almond Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
2 Tbsp. Ghee
2 large Apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp. Honey
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1/8 tsp. Nutmeg, ground
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
1/3 cup Maple Syrup
Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl. I like to use a hand mixer to get a nice, lump free batter. Beat on medium-high until the batter is smooth. The batter should be fairly runny.
Cook ghee, apples, sugar, honey, and spices on medium heat until the apples are tender. Add maple syrup and heat through. Serve immediately over waffles. The topping can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days and reheated if needed.
I like to make a double batch of these waffles and then store them in the fridge. I pop them in the toaster to reheat and have easy weekday breakfast.
