Oh sweet jaffle! Easy peasy apple pies

Fat Mum Slim /

Apple Pie Jaffle!If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you might know that I’ve been off dairy since having Luella… because she gets VERY cranky when I have it. I was totally fine with it. In fact I might have thought it was even a little bit fun to find dairy-free recipes and try non-dairy type foods.

I missed cereal and milk though. I tried oat milk, goat milk, soy milk, almond milk and rice milk and didn’t mind some of them… but I missed my normal milk. But I survived.
My doctor said every month I should try a little dairy again and see how she responds. Each month I did and it resulted in hours of cranky Luella… until this month. I tried a little, no reaction. Hesitantly, I tried a little more… no reaction. And then I started to think about all the dairy I haven’t eaten in forever, chocolate, ice cream, cheese, ALL THE DAIRY.

I’ve been so very restrained. I ate a little of the chocolate gift I didn’t eat at Christmas, I dobbed a little butter on my bread and yesterday I indulged in a spoonful of creamy ice cream and puff pastry. The indulgence will stop here, but it was oh-so-much fun!

I saw this recipe on TV this week, and I had to try it. It’s so easy and it means I can tick making & eating dessert off my list {if you’ve haven’t already, read this post and get ticking too}.


Stewed apples, I just made my own – two peeled, cored and chopped apples in a saucepan with a little water, sugar and some cinnamon until the apples were soft
1/2 a piece of puff pastry
Ice cream, to serve


♥ Heat up your jaffle maker. Cut your puff pastry into squares {if you have a square of puff pastry, just cut it in half and half again}. Place one piece in the jaffle maker, top with apple mix and then place the other pastry piece on top. Close the lid and cook until golden brown {about 4-5 minutes}. Serve with ice cream.
