IMG_1448

Just a quick wee recipe to get you through the week! If it is fall/autumn in your area of the world, then these apples will be a hit, I’m sure 🙂 Plus it’s all one bowl! In half an hour, you can have morning or afternoon tea on the table. I had mine with some leftover caramel sauce (use coconut cream instead of cream if you are making vegan caramel sauce).

Toasted Oat and Cinnamon Waffles

 

 

 

 

What is it about oats and cinnamon? Porridge, oat and raisin cookies (I used to work at Subway and was very pleased when I saw the amount of cinnamon in their cookies), and now waffles!
I may be an addict. Do you have any favourite spices or condiments that you seem to add to everything? Please comment if you do, I’d actually be very curious to know!

As you can see from above, these waffles were devoured a midst a morning of chaos and football comings and goings; my brother had honey and chocolate chips on his waffles; I forgot to mention that this is an excellent topping too. They’re a one-bowl recipe so go nuts!
