Pumpkin Waffles


With the many pumpkin recipes being featured on Pinterest lately, I have been in quite the mood for all things pumpkin.  So, when my friend Lisa posted on Facebook that her family was having pumpkin waffles, I had to have the recipe!  I modified it slightly to make it somewhat healthier--I substituted some whole wheat flour for some of the white, and I cut the amount of brown sugar called for in half.

I thought it would be fun to cut them into pumpkin shapes to have on Halloween morning.  Here is the recipe:

Pumpkin Waffles

4 eggs
3 1/2 cups milk
1 15 ounce can pumpkin (1 3/4 cups)
3/4 cup oil
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
mini chocolate chips, optional

 Mix wet ingredients.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Cook on your waffle iron.  If desired, cut into pumpkin shapes with cookie cutter and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.  Serve with maple syrup.

Note:  I had a bit of trouble with these wanting to stick to my waffle iron.  I ended up buttering the waffle plates each time I started a new set of waffles.  Next time, I may use some more oil in the batter. 

My kids really enjoyed this one.  I sampled a bit of them (I'm still trying to avoid those carbs!) and they reminded me of pumpkin bread, which I adore.  Hope you enjoy this one, too!
