OMG Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

Criminy! These are the best waffles I’ve ever made.  Prepare them at your peril – you may never want to eat anything else ever again.

Pumpkin Waffles are good for you!Very simple. Preheat your waffle iron and stir together:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 cups pumpkin or squash puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbl oil
  • 2 Tbl molasses
  • 4 Tbl maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tbl ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vinegar (this and baking soda replace baking powder)
  • ~4 c milk or milk substitute (I use almond milk)

This will make a very thick batter.  Add more milk to thin as needed.

Now chop about a cup of pecans.  Spread a portion of the pecans on the hot waffle iron, grease (if needed), and pour in your batter and bake. Putting the pecans directly on the waffle iron ensures you get that heavenly, butterscotch-y toasted pecan flavor.

Dang.  Can’t stop eating them.

      Believe me – no one in my household eats these because they’re a good source of fiber. 🙂
