Apple Cider Waffles

One of my latest pregnancy cravings has been waffles!  My waffle maker was under repair (thanks Chris for fixing it!) but now I'm back in business.  I prefer to make waffles at home so I can control the nutritional content and I top with fruit and nut butter or syrup.   

Adapted from: Stephanie Cooks
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs ground flax meal
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1. In a mixing bowl combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, flax meal and cinnamon. Stir well.
2. Beat in the egg, oil, milk, and cider.
3. Set aside and let stand 5 minutes while heating your waffle iron.
4. Spray the waffle iron and cook according to waffle iron directions.  Enjoy them hot or prep for the freezer!
5. Let extra waffles cool and divide into halves.  Separate with wax paper and put into a freezer bag.  Freeze to enjoy later (just pop them in the the toaster/toaster oven to reheat).

Waffles cooled, separated and in waxed paper
Ready for the freezer!
