Hello my hungry friends,

Our family used to have a wonderful tradition on Wednesdays, and it was called Waffle Wednesday! Not just any waffles, but a glorious stack of deliciousness mixed & topped with fruits, nuts, coconut whipped cream and sometimes even vegan chocolate chips! Yes this was a sight to see! I even have a few photo series on instagram documenting these tasty treats! Well ever since Shane gained a career job waffle wednesday just wasn’t in the cards anymore….so that is why this past weekend I decided that I was going to start a…..Stackable Saturday!!! Haha, can you tell I just love matching first letters together!!

With the fall weather teasing us here in Texas I decided to welcome it in with apples galore. I also really enjoyed dicing the apples with my new chef’s knife hehe. This mixture of apples, vegan butter, maple syrup and pumpkin spice mix was my best waffle topping yet! I believe Shane had 4-6 waffles…no joke! Little Ava was right behind him stealing off his plate even, I am telling you it’s that good!

INGREDIENTS

WAFFLES

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs or vegan substitute (chia + water)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • vegan chocolate chips

APPLE MIXTURE

  • 2 apples (finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter + 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice mix

additional toppings:

METHOD

  1. Preheat your waffle iron and place a medium skillet on the stove at high.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients (excluding the chocolate chips) in a large mixing bowl (I used an electric mixer and so can you!).
  3. Beat your eggs and pumpkin in a separate bowl then mix into the larger bowl.
  4. Next add remainder of the wet ingredients and mix well.
  5. Once finished mixing using a spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and scoop right amount into your waffle iron.
  6. Meanwhile, pour a bit of water on your skillet to see how the water reacts.
  7. If water dissolves: dry and wait a few minutes longer then try again.
  8. If water bounces around then all comes together like a little ball: continue on to next step
  9. Place oil, 1/2 of your butter and salt in skillet. The salt helps keep the oil from flying out at you.
  10. Turn heat down to medium and place apples in skillet. Stir and let sit for a few seconds. How are your waffles doing, remove and place more batter in if necessary.
  11. Stir apples and let sauté for about 2-3 minutes. Turn heat down to medium low and mix in syrup, other half of your butter, coconut milk and pumpkin spice mix.
  12. Continue to stir making sure not to let the apples burn. You want to create a nice thick syrup glaze, once you reached that remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
  13. Once waffles are all finished, stack desired amount on plate, top with your apple glaze and go a bit further with some delicious coconut whipped cream (I feel like this is truly a must to complete this dish!)
