Cooking with toddler – Apple Waffles

Expert says that most of the time it is normal for the toddler to be picky as 95 percent of the picky eaters are in the age period of 2-4.

Toddlers may turn picky eaters at a certain time of toddlerhood. It is really frustrating for us parents when we prepared food and the little one’s will not even glance on it. I am no way good on parenting skills but what works for us sometimes is involving little A from cooking. Several times cooking with toddler may do the trick as getting them involved in the process will stimulate their interest in food and they will be more willing to consume it. When little A asked me to prepare waffle for his breakfast, I immediately prepared the ingredients. Now we started making homemade waffles at our house and discovered this yummy combination!


I don’t have the picture of the waffles coz I need to leave early for our general meeting! Remember my post “I just need to share”. Yay! This Friday will be my first day of teaching..Praise be to GOD!

Anyway, I will still share the recipe so you can also try it with your kiddo’s.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk*
  • 2 cup diced apples
  • 3 tablespoon melted butter
  • maple syrup (optional)


2 1/2 apples, washed, cored and quartered
Place in a saucepan and partly cover with water. Simmer until tender. Blend apples in food processor/blender  until smooth.


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. In a second bowl, whisk together melted butter, eggs,buttermilk and maple syrup.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until ingredients are just mixed (some lumps are okay).
  4. Fold in applesauce.
  5. Cook on a waffle iron.
  6. Serve with butter and syrup


*If you do not have buttermilk, you can add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar for each cup of milk and let it sit for at least one minute before adding it to the wet ingredients.

Nutritional facts – Applesauce makes for a healthy snack. Apples are packed with numerous health benefits and while you don’t have to eat an apple a day to be healthy, eating an apple or a serving of applesauce several times a week is a good idea for our health
