Cinnamon Pecan Waffles 1

Cinnamon Pecan Waffles {A Recipe Redux}

Serves: 8 (1 waffle)

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a great week!! I am really excited today because it is the 21st of the month and that means it is time to share this months Recipe Redux challenge recipe! For those of you who aren’t familiar with this group, it is the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians. The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. It was founded by 3 amazing dietitians with a belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious. And let me tell you, I totally agree! The amazing bloggers who participate in this have come up with so many delicious, yet healthy recipes! If you haven’t been to the Recipe ReDux site yet, definitely pop over and check it out! Plus you can check out the other recipes from this month below!!

This months challenge was ‘May Showers’… in Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Graduation Parties and any gathering that might be revolved around brunch! When I think of brunch, the first thing that comes to mind is the amazing waffle bar that my mother likes to make for special gatherings! She brings out the waffle iron and lays out quite the spread of toppings from fruit, nuts, whipped cream, chocolate chips, etc! It’s like a sundae on a waffle! So, for this month’s challenge I decided to spice up our normal waffles……and top mine with my 2 favorites; greek yogurt and strawberries! I hope you enjoy!

Sweet cinnamon, nutty pecans and cool greek yogurt make these waffles absolutely amazing!!! These can easily be made ahead and stored in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator if you, say want to eat them every day for a week? 😉

    Question- Is there a substitution you can recommend for the Chestnut Flour? I'm grain free, so I can not use that ingredient; however, I would LOVE to make this recipe!

  • Oohh I've never used pecan or chestnut flour (...actually, I don't think I've ever had a chestnut!)! But I can always use another health waffle recipe in my life and these look great:) Also, what is that delicious creation in the second picture in your header?!

    Okay. Thank you. I honestly wasn't sure, but when I googled it said it contained white flour.. Weird. I'll be needing to find this flour now, because those waffles look like a must try!! :)

  • Yum that looks a like a great recipe. Never heard of that Recipe Redux site, going to visit it now!

  • i could eat brunch every day if you cooked! I love the waffle redux! Did you make your own pecan meal?
    May 21, 2013
  • I'm so glad a ReDuxer did waffles - one of my absolute favorite brunch items! I've never cooked with chestnut flour before - love the cinnamon, pecan and yogurt topping combo (I bet these smell divine when cooking :)
