One Minute Waffle Iron Baked Apples

Waffle Baked Apples

Are you ever looking for a treat which takes a minute and involves almost zero prep?

Look no farther. Your 6 year old can “cook” with this recipe. Simply slice apples thinly, shove them in a waffle iron, wait a minute – and voila!

These should be eaten immediately because they are very tasty hot off the griddle.

Add some cinnamon (or sugar if you want more of a treat) and you will feel like you are eating INSTANT apple pie.

A word about my waffle iron (see below) – I have had it for about 3 years and it is absolutely wonderful. I upgraded from a $10 waffle maker that I had bought at Walgreens and I am glad that I did. The best part is that it has a timer so you know how long you are cooking your waffles.

Let me know if you try this!

This looks like a perfect activity/snack for a kids' tea party. And would probably be great, even with winter apples that aren't so crisp anymore. Thank you! A good idea to consider a waffle iron upgrade....

Here in Australia we aren't so big on waffles, but I am following the Always Hungry diet and there is a great waffle recipe, so I invested in one. Cant wait to try this, what an awesome idea! Good to have some more uses for the waffle iron.

I love this idea! I love baked apples and home-made applesauce, so this is right up my alley. Thanks Lisa!
