Print Recipe


  • 125 g plain white flour
  • 125 g plain wholewheat flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 450 ml semi skimmed milk room temp
  • 115 g coconut oil melted (plus 1 tsp for frying)
  • 3 medium eggs room temp
  • 150 g fruit & nut granola plus more to garnish
  • 2 apples
  • 150 ml plain yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • Melt the coconut oil in the microwave, then add the milk and eggs. It's important that they're room temp otherwise the coconut oil will set.
  • Whisk together until combined.
  • Measure the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt into a second bowl and mix.
  • Make a well with a spoon.
  • Add the mix gradually, combining with a whisk as you go.
  • When fully combined, leave to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add the granola.
  • Fold until combined.
  • Pour a ladleful of batter into each hole of a hot waffle iron or waffle maker and close the lid.
  • Exact timings will depend on your waffle iron, but they should take approximate 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter. You will get 10 waffles in all, and you can keep the cooked waffles warm in the oven at about 140C on a wire rack.
  • Melt 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, then peel the apples, cut into eighths and add to the pan.
  • Fry until just beginning to caramelise.
  • Stack 2-3 waffles per person on plates, and cover generously with natural yoghurt and some apple pieces.
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of granola and a drizzle of honey.
  • Drizzle with honey and serve!
