Pumpkin Waffles

One of our family’s favorite fall breakfasts is a plate of warm pumpkin waffles! It’s a hearty “real food” breakfast, full of seasonal flavors, and nourishing ingredients. (Please, just skip those packaged waffle mixes…)

These are delicious topped with some homemade yogurt and a drizzle of raw honey or some real, organic maple syrup.

These waffles are a great way to use up a last little bit of canned pumpkin or leftovers. If you have pumpkin pie spice, you can use that instead of the individual spices (use 1-2 tsp).

They disappear quickly, so you may want to double the batch!

Pumpkin Waffles

1 cup sifted Flour (use your choice of gluten-free* or whole grain flours)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. ground Ginger
1/4 tsp. ground Cloves
1/4 tsp. ground Nutmeg
2 large or jumbo Eggs
2/3 Cup Buttermilk or Plain Yogurt
1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree (or canned pumpkin); I’ve also used mashed sweet potato or Delicata squash, too.
1 Tbl. Molasses

Grease waffle iron, and heat. In a large mixing bowl, combine together flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk/yogurt, pumpkin, and molasses. Gently stir the liquid mixture into the dry mixture.

Cook waffle batter on waffle iron until deep golden brown, and serve immediately. Serves 4

*For our gluten-free mixture, we have filled a 1 Cup measuring cup with approximately 1/3 heaping cup Brown Teff Flour, 1/3 heaping cup Brown Rice Flour, and 1/4 cup Potato Starch

Warm spiced pumpkin waffles are definitely a finer thing of the season, don’t you think? :)  We love to bless overnight guests with seasonal pumpkin delights, and this recipe is a fabulous way to frugally stretch those elusive cans of pumpkin!
