IMG_1694

As you must already know, or maybe figured out, I am a waffle person. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a good pancake every now and then, but I much prefer waffles. Something about them are light and fluffy, while also being crispy on the exterior is perfect. I am so thankful that my sister gave me a waffle iron for Christmas. I practically use it every weekend!

I love trying out different waffle recipes and experimenting myself. This time, I was inspired by apple pie. Everyone loves apple pie; it’s a good meal ender to anything! These particularly waffles contain hemp and chia seeds, which are high in protein and also filled with essential omega-3 fats, which are heart healthy! Not only are these waffles delicious and good for you, they will leave you full for a while. Perfect for a weekend brunch!
