- Preheat waffle iron
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and apple pie spice in a medium mixing bowl.

- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined (with no remaining flour pockets).
- Place about 1/3 of the batter in each section of the waffle iron then cook.
- Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes, then enjoy!
