Fall Spice Waffles with Apple Fruit Topping

Dry Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp sea salt
3 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
cardamom, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves (Fall spice Medley)
a handful of finely chopped ginger

Wet Ingredients
2 eggs
3/4 cups almond milk (you can use regular milk or a milk substitute)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup oil (butter, grapeseed, olive)
¾ cup ginger ale** (add after combining all ingredients)

Now, whisk them together in a large bowl. Add the ginger ale. I spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray or lightly brush it with oil (grapeseed oil or olive oil). Put about 2/3 cup of batter in the middle of the waffle iron and close the “lid.” The batter is moderately thick, so I think 4 1/2 – 5 minutes did the trick. This should make about 4-5 8-inch circular waffles. Rule of thumb: Cook waffles until the steam stops rising from the iron. You can also judge by the color.

Prepping cardamom with a mortar and pestle

I combined all of my ingredients in a mixing bowl and placed them in a non stick aluminum pan. I covered the pan with aluminum foil. After baking them on 350 degrees for 40 minutes (time will vary depending on the size of the apples), they came out like this:

I will use my apples in oatmeal, maybe on the side with a pork chop, or over Banana Nice Cream. Baked Cinnamon Cranberry Cardamom Apples go well with waffles. Soon, I’ll be posting my Fall Waffle Recipe!
