Apple Cinnamon Crunch Waffles {from Lynnie}

Waffle Batter: Make according to directions on package, but substitute applesauce for oil. Then add about 2 tsp of cinnamon,  1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp all spice

Crumb Topping: 5 TBSP of each - flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, cold butter.  2 tsp cinnamon. Mix flour, sugar, and oatmeal, and cinnamon. Cut in cold butter. (This is enough for about 10 waffles)
Caramelized Apples:  2 large apples peeled and diced, 4 tbsp butter, 3 tbsp brown sugar, 3/4 tsp cinnamon


*Grease waffle iron. Once iron is hot enough, add appropriate amount of waffle batter. Close lid and cook until green 'ready' light turns on. Open lid, add generous amount of topping to both waffles (enough to cover each), close lid, cook for another 30-60 seconds, or until topping has melted and crunched. (You might add the topping before the green light goes off to give it more time to melt.)
*Make apples as waffles are cooking.  Melt butter in small pan over med. heat.  Add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Stir and bring to a slow boil.  Boil for about 1 min.  Turn to low and simmer until ready to use.

*Once everything is ready,  top waffles with apples and mom's amazing cinnamon syrup (and homemade whipped cream, if your heart so desires). enjoy!
