I love these apple sesame whole wheat waffles, and have to thank for desconstructing the recipe or at least one that's very close to the Sunlit Cafe's beloved version in Seattle.


  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup honey (may substitute, sugar or agave nectar)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Step 1
Mix wet ingredients.
Step 2
In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.
Step 3
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, one-half cup at a time, and incorporate until lumps are gone and batter is thick. It may take a little more buttermilk, at times.
Step 4
Heat waffle iron, coat grates with oil (high temps butter burns). Pour or spoon enough batter to cover two-thirds of the waffle iron's surface as the batter will spread when the iron is closed.
Step 5
Since all waffle irons are different, let your nose help you. Steam will rise and a good baking aroma, will alert you as when to remove or at least take a peak.
