Before you get excited, I did cheat here. To make things fast, I used frozen waffles that were both vegan and gluten free, but you can really put this mixture on any type of waffle, pancake or other breakfast item.
Actually, the apples are even good on their own.
I made enough for two-four waffles, but just increase the amount of apples and rum/maple syrup for a bigger batch.
Adding a homemade element to somerthing that is premade, gives it an added homemade touch, while also saving time in the kitchen. For me the frozen gluten-free vegan waffles make things fast and easy for me to just pop them in the toaster and then add this healthy element on it.
Feel free to add more maple syprup, too, Or drizzel the apple mixture with additional syrup if you like them sweeter.
Remember, it is all about your personal taste!
