When I told my 10-year-old I was going to call these Fluffy Applesauce Waffles she said “I think you should name them Best. Waffles. Ever!” So, I think that’s a pretty good sign she liked them. :) Find our fluffy waffle recipe below for a freezer-friendly breakfast idea that’s a lifesaver for busy mornings!
Whole Wheat Waffle Recipe
Light, sweet and delightfully fluffy, these are a cut above any boxed frozen waffles from the store! These whole wheat waffles are naturally sweetened with applesauce and can easily be frozen ahead of time for busy mornings. hope your kids dig them as much as mine do!
Best Whole Wheat Flour for Fluffy Waffles
For this recipe I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. The lighter texture of this flour really made these waffles light and fluffy and was honestly a perfect combination with the cinnamon and applesauce. And that’s because whole wheat pastry flour is milled from soft white wheat, whereas regular whole wheat flour is milled from hard red wheat.
This flour is a great way to make really tender baked goods – I’ll definitely be using it again soon just to switch things up!
