Pumpkin Waffles


Author Notes: These are actually pretty healthy. The pumpkin allows for a decrease in fat and flour while providing extra fiber and vitamin A than your standard waffle. A light drizzling of honey or maple syrup make for excellent finishers and let the pumpkin and spice flavors shine.gabsimonelouise

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin, kabocha, or butternut squash puree (I like kabocha)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped candied ginger, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, spices, and sugar.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients until combined.
  3. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix until nearly combined; some lumps of pumpkin and flour will remain but that is okay.
  4. Cook waffles according to waffle maker's instructions. Top with honey (my favorite), maple syrup, or whatever you'd like.
