Happy National Waffle Day! I know that many people think the ‘national this and that food holidays’ are silly. But you know what? I love them! I think they are such a fun way to celebrate! There’s so much negativity in the world and sad or bad news everywhere you turn, why not have a little fun and celebrate something that may seem silly? There’s no harm in that right? Plus – with a recipe like these Whole Wheat Apple Pie Waffles you will want to celebrate EVERYDAY! They are SO freaking good! When Post sent me my fun new Cuisinart Classic Waffle Maker & Post Grape-Nuts Cereal I could hardly wait to get in the kitchen and create a special recipe for today!

As much as I hate to say it Fall is right around the corner. I know. I know. I just can’t get over summer coming to an end. Give me another few weeks and I’ll adjust. Until then I’ll continue to boohoo. Bear with me. With the change in seasons hot on our heals I’m starting to think about the flavors of the season.

    These were great! I got 8 waffles out of my square waffle iron. They stuck to the pan a bit, but the taste was amazing. Thank you!!

      I love certain foods that bring back memories like that. I hadn’t thought to add them to waffles either, but man – they were absolutely perfect! Thanks Meg!

    We make a lot (and I mean A LOT) of waffles at our house and we always stick with whole wheat ones. So…that means that I need to add these beautiful waffles to our rotation.
