Cinnamon Waffles


Cinnamon makes me think of fall.  The crisp air.  Hearty soups.  Falling leaves.  Pumpkin spice lattes.




I think I am done with summer.  I enjoy the warm weather but the thought of fall brings a giant smile to my face. So today, I whipped up some cinnamon waffles for breakfast, in honor of my favorite season.   It is just a few weeks away!

I like this waffle batter because it has applesauce instead of vegetable oil.  Yes, applesauce.   So much healthier than vegetable oil!




Topped with a little butter and warm syrup?  This was a hearty breakfast.  You should have seen me this morning.  With each bite, I was dreaming of cooler weather, scarves, boots and snow.  All because of cinnamon waffles.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
