pumpkin spice waffles

4 eggs  •  3 C flour  •  1-15 oz can pumpkin  •  3 C buttermilk
3 T agave nectar  •  4 tsp baking powder  •  1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin spice  •  1 tsp salt

Pumpkin, who doesn’t love it? During this time of year I tend to make one or two dishes a week with pumpkin in it. It’s such a great fall food and healthy for you too! This week I whipped up a HUGE batch of these pumpkin spice waffles for the kiddos, the rest I just separated and froze for later use (when reheating please toast them and do NOT microwave them). Waffles are such a quick and easy meal for breakfast or dinner, well, really any time of day. I love that this pumpkin waffle is filled with fragrant flavors of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, it just screams fall. To tie all those fall flavors together I recommend making a rich and creamy cinnamon butter and topping it all off with a warm pure maple syrup. This may be considered a breakfast food but it could also pass for a dessert! Which gives me another topping idea – whipping cream! Yum.

Preheat waffle iron to high
Carefully read through the instructions for your waffle iron before you use it. Each unit cooks a little differently. Coat waffle iron with a oil spray before using.

Prep: In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, agave nectar and pumpkin together. Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients. While mixing pumpkin mixture on low slowly alternate the dry ingredients and the buttermilk until combined. Using a 1-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter and place it in the center of the hot waffle iron. Allow about 4 minutes per waffle batch, your waffle iron may or may not indicate the waffles are done but check at the four minute mark. Serve with a cinnamon butter and warm maple syrup.

Makes about 8-10 batches depending on iron size

notes: I live at a fairly high altitude so you may need to adjust your recipe accordingly.

buy it now: If you don’t have your own cooking oil sprayer I suggest using the Trader Joe’s Canola Oil cooking spray. I would suggest purchasing your own sprayer because it is cheaper in the long run and more healthy. I recommend using an oil sprayer like the one sold at Williams Sonoma: Williams Sonoma Oil Mister.

… happy Thursday – and a happy belated birthday to my dear friends JM and PT, love you girls!
