Pretty sure you all know by now my serious love for breakfast foods and these Apple Cider Buckwheat Waffles are crazy easy and so good. They are also gluten-free, dairy-free and filled with nutrient dense ingredients. I have had this recipe for a while but it got pushed back with all the Thanksgiving recipes but I have been dying to share it with you all.

I have always been a big fan of apple cider donuts and basically every donut in existence. Some of the inspiration for this recipe came from having an apple cider donut.

The cider really adds a lot of sweet and spice flavor to baked goods and also lends a great texture. I decided to use buckwheat flour for the base of these waffles because I think the nutty flavor really goes perfectly with the sweet apple flavor and spices. It is also an affordable flour and is actually considered to be a fruit and not a grain. I actually tolerate it really well and love the flavor and cost effectiveness of it too.

This recipe actually makes a pretty large amount of waffles. I have a Belgian waffle maker and it usually makes about 16-18 squares. They freeze and reheat really well though so be sure to store them in the freezer for a quick breakfast.

  1. Thanks Jessi!
    Having recently reviewed many waffle makers, I finally bought one and can’t wait for this weekend so I can test out some recipes. This one sounds great but I might have to lower the proportion sizes or I’ll be eating them for weeks to come. I now have this one and one for lemon with poppy seeds to try.
