healthy buckwheat apple waffles

well this was another of the recipes on my 2010 recipes list, and i definitely think i'll be perfecting this as the year goes on, but this is at least a start to the low everything waffles.

i did a lot of research on healthy waffle recipes and my favorite was a spiced apple wholewheat waffle recipe over at recipegirl (i also liked this and this)

so, i tried it out, obviously slightly amended -as always- due to what i had in stock and that the consistency seemed a little off when i had mixed everything together.

Here's what i used for 2 people:
1 large egg
1/3 cup filtered water
1/3 cup soya milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 small Gala apple chopped into tiny cubes (or grated)
1 cup flour (a mix of buckwheat, wholewheat, plain, gluten free)
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves)
1/3 tsp baking soda
sprinkle of salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar

i mixed all the wet ingredients, and then added the dry. pop it into the waffle machine, and this made 4 yummy waffles, which tasted delish with honey, but would also be scrumdidlyumptious with maple syrup.

i've now tested it with pear instead of apple, which was lovely, especially when i added a few dark chocolate chips too. wowee!
