Secret Recipe Club: Apple Cinnamon Waffles

It’s that time again, time for a Secret Recipe Club reveal!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was assigned Itzy’s Kitchen, written by Erica, mom to the most adorable baby girl, Kaylin, and an English Bulldog named Frank. My pal Maegan would be so in love with Frank!

It didn’t take me long to settle on a recipe. With a title like Waffles of Insane Greatness, how could I not?!

Make sure you also check out Erica’s recipes for German Potato Salad (a family favorite when I was growing up), Ghirardelli Sea Salt Double Chocolate Cookies and this Fancy Schmancy Citrus Tart. All are now on my list of must makes!

You may have noticed my waffles aren’t your typical Belgian squares with deep wells for syrup holding. You may or may not have caught on by now that I’m a bit of a Disney fanatic. After a semester working there, and a lifetime of visiting, it’s fair to say I have a bit of an obsession.

I don’t let it take over the house though. You’ll find little spots throughout our house with a touch of Disney magic. Like this waffle iron. I can’t tell you how happy it made my Sunday morning to have Mickey staring up at me from my plate.

After reading Erica’s recipe, I knew that this recipe would be the perfect application for the pot of apple cinnamon Chobani Greek yogurt in the fridge. The little chunks of apple were a pleasant surprise throughout the waffles. James couldn’t get enough of them!

If I had anything to do differently, it would have been to add some toasted walnuts or pecans to the batter. My dad used to make walnut and pecan waffles all the time for us when I was a kid, and they’re still my favorite to this day. I wasn’t too sure how James would take to them though, so I left them out this time around.

You could use any flavor of Greek Yogurt as inspiration here. I’m pretty sure Black Cherry or Pomegranate would also be mind-blowing. Think of all the possibilities for a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed to remember!

Thanks, Erica, for a fabulous recipe. We’ll be making these waffles all the time!

      Erica, I’m so sorry! I just fixed the post. Would you believe I was so worried about spelling Kaylin’s name right that I checked it 3 times, and somehow forgot to double check I was spelling your name right? Thanks again for a fabulous recipe.

    OMG, I have to have that waffle iron (nevermind that I already own two… a gal can never have too many, right?) I love the idea of playing with different yogurt flavours, especially since we can’t get Apple Cinnamon Chobani up here in Canada yet, though I do stock up on the Pomegranate like it’s going out of style. :)

      Isabelle, I hear the apple cinnamon is coming soon to you guys. Until then, Pomegranate waffles for everyone! (And yes, I totally love my waffle iron. Who needs boring squares and circles?)

      Melissa, they’re pretty darn kid friendly. And let’s face it, what kid isn’t going to eat something Mickey shaped?

    I love yogurt in just about anything; why have I never thought of putting it in waffles! I absolutely adore your waffle maker, too…so freaking cute!

      Sarah, I put cereal on the apple cinnamon a few weeks ago instead of dousing it in milk. Genius move, I have to say. It’s some fabulous yogurt!

    • says

      Thanks, Maria. We really loved them. In fact, I haven’t stopped thinking about them. So I’m going to try a new flavor of yogurt this weekend. Maybe Strawberry or Peach. If I do Peach, I’m adding pecans!
