For the apple pie toppings

  • 2 tablespoons ghee, butter or coconut oil
  • 3 honeycrisp apples, diced
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • nut butter of choice
  • maple syrup


  1. Whisk together applesauce, eggs, vanilla extract, and coconut oil.
  2. Add tapioca flour and whisk until combined. Then add protein powder and whisk again to combine. Lastly, add baking soda, cinnamon and a pitch of salt and mix well.
  3. Pour batter into a greased hot waffle iron and cook until crispy. Be patient. Mine took less than 5 minutes per waffle. Repeat with the rest of the batter. My batter made 6 round waffles.
  4. While the waffles cook, add fat to a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the apples and cook until soft, about 5-6 minutes. Then add syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon. Toss to coat.
  5. Top each waffle with your nut butter of choice, sautéed apples and extra maple syrup on top, before serving!
