Cinnamon Cornbread Waffles for One.

There will be a time when these recipe posts are no long “for one.” There will… right?


On Friday I made black bean soup and corn bread for my family for dinner and though I don’t make it often, I absolutely love cornbread. It’s something I don’t think about making very often but it’s so easy and SO good. Paired with soup, chilli, salad, really anything, it’s amazing. I decided to continue to theme into Sunday’s breakfast when I made Cinnamon Cornbread Waffles! I don’t really use recipes for pancakes or waffles but really just stick with a plain base and add whatever extra ingredients I’m feeling. This time it was cinnamon, maple syrup, apples, and cornmeal.

Cinnamon Cornbread Waffles

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

1/3 cup yellow corn meal

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 cup apple sauce

1/4 cup egg whites

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 – 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

Mix all ingredients together and pour into waffle maker. Makes 2 waffles. Top with apple slices and as much maple syrup as you deem socially acceptable. If you are dining alone… the limit does not exist.


Waffles are such a delicious breakfast… or lunch/dinner. These waffles aren’t as fluffy as others because the cornmeal is heavier than flour but they were still tasty and I love when waffles have a bit of a crunch on the outside but are soft inside, which is exactly what these were.

What should I add to my waffles next?

Suggestions for how to turn “waffles for one” into “waffles for two”? 😉


  1. These look and sound delicious! And I have all the ingredients! Except no waffle maker 🙁

    Enjoy making waffles for one for now…at least there is no one to complain about what you made or eating up all your food 😉

  2. When you figure out how to make waffles for two, let me know. I love cornbread too. It’s rare to find it in Canadian restaurants/cafes and that makes me sad. The best cornbread-y things I’ve ever had were at a Bobby Flay restaurant in Vegas (Mesa Grill): blue corn waffles with blackberry bourbon syrup and vanilla cream.
    Plus spicy jalapeno/goat cheese cornbread muffins in the bread basket. OMG

  3. Let’s hope so! (no more recipes for one)
    Your knight in shining armour is out there, making his way towards you.
    All of a sudden, he will be here sweeping you off your feet!
