Rye Waffles with Caramelized Apple

I’ve been exploring using rye flour in my cooking. I love the hardy deep taste of rye. Besides the delicious rich taste here are a few things you probably didn’t know about rye:

  1. Rye increases your fullness feeling
  2. Rye may suppress weight gain
  3. Rye balances blood sugar
  4. Rye is rich in fiber

I made these rye waffles mixing both rye and white flour together. The added flavor comes from using sour cream in the waffle batter. This is a yummy breakfast.

From by the bay, wishing you delicious rye food memories!
