Pumpkin Pecan Waffles


It’s Sunday, so that means make breakfast for the family to kick off family day! This week in honor of Halloween and Fall, I’m mixing up some pumpkin waffles! It’s like having a crispy pumpkin pie for breakfast (oh yeah and a serving of veggies).

1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c packed light brown sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
4 large eggs
1 c milk
1 c buttermilk
1 can canned solid-pack pumpkin
1 c chopped pecans
6 TBSP butter, melted

Preheat waffle iron.

Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, and spices.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl until blended, then whisk in milk, buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter until smooth. Whisk in dry ingredients just until smooth.

Brush waffle iron lightly with oil and spoon batter (about 2 cups for four 4-inch Belgian waffles) into waffle iron, spreading quickly. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Makes 12 4-inch waffles
