Multigrain Cinnamon Apple Waffles & a Giveaway!
Its tuesday. My head is spinning. Packing, planning, and thinking of all the places I need to eat before we move are making me crazy!
In the midst of this, cooking has been minimal, but I did manage to make some uhh mazing waffles this morning with Arrowhead Mills Multigrain mix! The husband loves waffles, so its a must that I always have a healthier option to reach for.
I have used Arrowhead Mills Buckwheat mix before, but the multigrain is much lighter, and has a wonderful grainy texture! So easy and great to keep on hand for the mornings you want to whip up healthy, fiber rich pancakes or waffles!
Multigrain Waffle mix- good source of calcium,phosphorous, fiber and whole grain.
Flax seeds-rich in alpha linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid), act as an anti-inflammatory, and protect bone health.
Apple-rich in fiber, high in pectin which lowers cholesterol, excellent source of antioxidant nutrients and Vitamin C.
..And thanks to my newest site obsession, Mambo Sprouts (an online healthy food and eating community) I am giving away a package of the waffle mix I used today.
All you have to do is comment on this post with your favorite food indulgence that you would like to see “made over” into a healthier version!
Have a great day! Winner will be announced by Thursday night at 6 pm.

1 tablespoon honey
3/4 cup fat free milk (or almond, soy, or rice)

Preheat your waffle iron. In a bowl, mix together waffle ingredients. Cook according to your waffle iron. Meanwhile, heat a small skillet over medium heat and add sliced apple and water. Let simmer 2-3 minutes, or until apples begin to get tender. Stir in remaining ingredients and let simmer for another 2-3 minutes, or until apples are completely tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
Top waffles with apple mixture and sprinkle with toasted walnuts. Enjoy!
