The last time I had a frozen, Ego Waffle was in college many years ago; and I can’t recall when I ordered one at a restaurant. I am certain that after you make this recipe you will feel the same—Belgium waffles are super easy to make and taste the most delicious homemade.
Weekends at the S&S household mean fresh, hand-made waffles or pancakes. I have a few waffle recipes that I love to try and this is my latest creation. Victor loves these waffles as he’s a huge Apple and Cinnamon fan. Another bonus is how amazing the house smells when these are cooking.
Waffles, like most foods can be a healthy treat when done right. These waffles have the wellness benefits of:
Fiber – from the whole wheat flour, flax seed, walnuts and apples
Essential Fatty acids – good fats are provided by flax seed and walnuts
Vitamins and minerals – quality flour, flax seed, walnuts, apples
Phytochemicals – apples and most importantly cinnamon

Fit Tip—The calorie culprit with waffles is the maple syrup. We love to enjoy our waffles drizzled with this delicious Canadian delicacy but maple syrup is empty calories that carries no nutritional value. It’s often a good idea to use a squeeze bottle or a spoon to control the amount of syrup before you start pouring it over the waffles. To make the sweetness last, dress your waffles with fresh berries and drizzle the syrup on top of that—little will go a long way.
As for butter on top, this recipe makes the most moist and delicious waffles that you won’t need to add any.
Belgium waffles are made in a special waffle maker with large groves. If you don’t have this type, any other waffle maker will do, the waffles will look a little different but same great taste and health benefits.
We love our waffle maker!
We have the Warring Pro double waffle maker (not affiliated in any way). The last we checked it’s not available in Canada, we bough ours from the States as we live very close to the border. It’s been going strong for 5+ years now and we use it weekly.
When Victor and I got married, over a decade ago, on our small budget we bought the P.C. brand small 2 waffle maker. This lasted us many years and made delicious waffles, until it finally broke and gave us a chance to invest in something new. Wow! I just had a moment 🙂
Now, back to the recipe…
