Christmas Morning Waffles

Kara made these the other day and said they were so yummy!  Perfect to make when it is snowing outside and you just want to cuddle up and stay in your pajama's all day.  Also perfect for Christmas morning!  They're easy to make and taste so good!

Christmas Morning Waffles

    Cinnamon Syrup:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water
  • Cinnamon Apples:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2-3 large sweet apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • Waffles:
  • 2 cups all-purpose or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable, canola or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  1. For the syrup, whisk together the sugars, flour and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Whisk in the water and vanilla. Bring the mixture to a low boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes until slightly thickened. Keep warm while preparing the apples and waffles.
  2. For the cinnamon apples, in a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the apples are tender, 5-7 minutes. Keep warm while preparing the waffles.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Pour milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract into the flour mixture; stir until just combined. Don't overmix! The mixture should be slightly lumpy.
  4. In a medium glass or metal mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. If you lift your beater or whisk straight up, the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than sharp peaks. Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.
  5. Heat a waffle iron (greasing with cooking spray if necessary) and cook the waffles on the hot iron.
  6. Serve with cinnamon apples and cinnamon syrup.
