Beer Waffles with Cinnamon-Caramel Apples

Oats and beer add hearty flavor and texture that complement the sweet intensity of caramel apples. These waffles aren't sweet, so you can pair them with savory toppings such as melted cheese or roasted vegetables.

Waffles

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
1 cup all-purpose flour
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup instant oats
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. sugar
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. baking powder
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. baking soda

Instructions: 

1. To make Cinnamon-Caramel Apples: Sprinkle sugar over large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until sugar dissolves into amber-colored caramel syrup, tilting pan to distribute sugar evenly but not stirring. Meanwhile, warm coconut milk in small skillet over medium-low heat. Remove caramelized sugar from heat, and stir in warmed coconut milk. Return to heat, and stir in apples and cinnamon. Cook 3 minutes, or until apples begin to soften and sauce begins to thicken. Stir in lemon juice. Keep warm.

2. To make Waffles: Preheat Belgian waffle iron to high heat. Whisk together flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl.

3. Blend soymilk, ground flaxseeds, and ı/4 cup water in blender 1 minute, or until thick and creamy. Whisk milk mixture, beer, and margarine into flour mixture.

4. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto each square of waffle iron. Close lid, and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until waffle is crisp and dark golden. Repeat with remaining batter. Spoon ¼ cup Cinnamon-Caramel Apples over each serving.

Comments on this Recipe

This was just okay for me. It definitely does not make 4 large waffles. It just barely made 2 using a standard 7 inch round waffle iron.
