Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 2 servings. Each serving, 1 waffle with apple-pie topping (not including fat-free whipped cream)

Healthy Benefits

Research has linked cinnamon with helping to reduced blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in people with type-2 diabetes.

Shopping Tips
Van’s Whole Grains, Multigrain frozen waffles are a crispy combination of hearty whole wheat, oats, barley, brown rice, rye, quinoa, amaranth and millet. They are sweetened with a touch of honey. Most supermarkets sell them in the freezer section where other frozen waffles are displayed. Van’s also makes gluten-free waffles.
Truvia (stevia) is my favorite sugar substitute. It’s all-natural and comes from the stevia plant. You’ll find it in most supermarkets in the baking aisle where sugar and other sugar substitutes are displayed.

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light
  • cups apples, peeled and chopped, such as Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp
  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 frozen waffles, I like Van’s Whole Grains, Multigrain waffles, see shopping tips
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

To Cook Apples:

  • Microwave: In a small microwave-safe bowl, add butter. Cover with a plate and heat to melt, about 15 seconds. Add apples, water, cinnamon and sweetener. Toss together. Cover with a plate and cook in microwave for about 4 minutes, until apples are very soft.
  • Stovetop: In a small nonstick pan, melt butter. Stir in apples, cinnamon and sugar substitute. Add 3 tablespoons of water and mix well. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often until apples are softened, about 10 minutes.

To Cook Waffles:

  • In the meantime, toast the waffles in a toaster until crispy.
  • Add one waffle to each plate. Top each with ½ of the cooked apples and spoon the cinnamon liquid over the top. Drizzle over the top of each with 1 tablespoon warmed maple syrup. Top with fat-free whipped cream, if desired.
  • Serve at once and enjoy!

  1. I would love to try these muffins but I can’t understand how there is so much sugar if you use a substitute. Is there a way I can cut down more of iy?

  2. Anne Marie, the sugar is coming from the maple syrup. You can cut the sugar if you don’t use the syrup. The apples and cinnamon are so good, you’ll still enjoy it. Or, use could use sugar free syrup.
    All the best,
