Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles {Vegetarian, Whole Food}

Our kids LOVE waffles, which they call pan-waffles...unfortunately, that's also what they call pancakes. So, yeah...confusing, much? But I digress. They also love pumpkin flavoring. I'm pretty sure I injected this love of pumpkin into them in utero. So, for some unbeknownst up until now, we haven't made pumpkin waffles. Then Bug, our 3-year-old, and I were flipping through her favorite cookbook, Royal Recipe Collection Disney Princess Cookbook, and found a recipe for Cinderella's Pumpkin Carriage Waffles. We made them immediately

Pumpkin Waffles
Adapted from Cinderella's Pumpkin Carriage Waffles, Royal Recipe Collection Disney Princess Cookbook.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups whole wheat white flour
  • 2 tablespoons sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce (or oil)
Directions
Mix dry ingredients together (through ginger). Mix wet ingredients together (remaining ingredients). Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined.

Pour about 3/4 cup waffle batter into your waffle iron. Cook to desired brownness. Repeat.

Yield: 10 servings.

The Results
Incredible! We (the kids and I) absolutely love these waffles. And the pumpkin-indifferent husband actually liked them, too. Bonus! We'll definitely be making these again. That princess cookbook has certainly more than repaid its 99-cent thrift store price. :)
