Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles

This is the breakfast of breakfasts. Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice*
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or not)

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat your waffle iron. In a small bowl, combine the flour, wheat germ, sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the milk, pumpkin puree, butter, oil, applesauce, whole egg, and egg white.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, along with the pecans.
  4. Ladle the batter onto the preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.

 

*For 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, combine: 1/3 tsp ginger, 1/3 tsp cloves, 1/3 tsp allspice

Note: I usually double this recipe, since the above only serves four. The doubled version makes 8-9 large waffles. See below.

Doubled ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
