Whole Grain Apple Waffles

A chilly morning is the perfect time to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee and a warm stack of waffles. Our whole grain waffles are high in fiber, low in sugar and offer a helping of sweet Honeycrisp apples. Top with apple sauce or diced fresh apples to boost the nutrition as well as the apple flavor.
