Few things feel so right as waking up on a Saturday with the weekend stretching before you and the scent of something delicious wafting up from the kitchen. What’s your pleasure? Freshly-baked bread, scrambled eggs and bacon (real, vegan or otherwise), coffee or flavored tea…or a sweet scent of baking apples with a hint of cinnamon.
You might indeed be facing a freshly-baked apple pie when you head to the kitchen, but just in case you’re not, you’ll still be lucky if you’ve got Van’s Apple Cinnamon Waffles sitting on your plate.
I’ve had these several times and for a good reason: I am totally addicted to their scent as they bake in the toaster oven. The taste doesn’t let you down, either. The apple juice concentrate in the ingredients yields an eat-every-last-bit punch, the baking time leaves them wonderfully crispy yet chewy enough, and while I do add butter (real butter if I’m feeling saucy) and pure maple syrup, these would be just as good on their own. Try them with your favorite nut or apple butter or jelly!
For those keeping track at home, these waffles are also gluten free, dairy free and egg free. They are not, however, soy-free.
I think Van’s has more waffles than anything, but check out their whole product line for more tasty treats.
