These were really good. I'm following a balanced healthy diet plan. I switched the whole wheat flour for whole grain pastry flour with great results. Also took in to consideration small chunks of apples versus grated apples. I ended up with 5 waffles instead of 4. Per waffles 81 cal with a whooping 7.62 grams of fiber. I served this waffles with 2 tbsp of almond butter. Thank you so much for submitting this healthy recipe! Will make again.
Great taste, but these took about an hour from start to finish. Definitely not a quick recipe!
I would like to give this a 4.5. They are really good, and I love that they are all whole grain and almost no fat! I do not have to feel guilty like I do with the waffles my hubbie makes with a whole stick of butter!!! I cut the apples in chunks, as another reveiwer suggested, and the apple taste and texture came through clearly and wonderfully. Note of warning -- these do take really long to cook. I thought 7 minutes sounded awfully long, but it is about right. Also, they are not light and fluffy like you might think of when you hear "waffles". These are almost another category of food. They are pretty heavy and almost crunchy. Very good! Thanks!
Made so many changes to make it less healthy and more tasty. I don't know if I can legitimately rate the recipe. Changed to 3/4 recipe. Used 1 egg instead of 1.5 egg whites. Of the whole wheat flour, substituted 1/4 c white flour. Added flaxseed meal, about 1T. Added 1T brown sugar and used 1 t baking powder instead of yeast since didn't have any on hand. Added 2T butter. Didn't have any applesauce, so just grated more apple, and also used apples in small chunks, total 2 medium apples. Didn't have any apple spice, so used 1 t cinnamon. Instead of water, I used skim milk, upping the total to 1.5 c and mixed all wet ingredients at once. Maybe because of my changes, the waffles didn't take THAT long to cook, maybe 4-5 minutes. Tasted great and will make it again. Fluffy, but not that crispy on the outside.
I had difficulty substituting whole wheat flour for the regular flour. By adding the yeast, I also noticed that the waffles came apart because they were "fluffy" rather than dense. It could be that there was too much moisture in the batter (too many apples?). I may consider trying again with only 1 apple and add a little extra sugar (or sugar substitute).
These were a little too dense for my taste, but I guess they were pretty healthy. Plus, in my opinion, waffles can never be THAT bad.
The family really liked these, even the kids that swore he wouldn't. I chopped the apples instead of shredding, next time I will add more. Prep does take longer than expected, but it was worth it!
I was a little disappointed. These were not awful, not good either. They took forever to cook and didn't really have much flavor.
