Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Pumpkin spice makes everything nice! If you are like me and love pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice cakes and cookies, you will LOVE these waffles. If you don’t, just share this with someone who will!

Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast foods, we purchased a waffle iron a couple years ago and I try to use it often. I purchased this one at Target, if you don’t have a waffle iron this is an affordable one to start with. It’s under $20 and does the job to make delicious Belgian waffles, one at a time. Now if your family is larger than 2-3 people you may want to consider a larger waffle iron, like this one I found on Target.com. (The links provided are affiliate links, any purchases made using those links provide a small percentage of income for this blogger.)

Once you have your waffle iron ready to use, make your batter! The batter is simple to mix together and it will make around 8 Belgian waffles. One waffle is very filling for some, so we normally start with one per a person!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce in replace of oil. (If you want to use oil, use vegetable oil 1/2 cup)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup milk (of your choice, I use almond milk)

Optional toppings: 

  • Maple Syrup
  • Honey
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
  • Cinnamon & Sugar
  • Whipped Cream

Directions: 

  1. Turn waffle iron on, I use the hottest setting available.
  2. Combine dry ingredients together in a large bowl. (Flour, sugar, baking powder, spices)
  3. Combine wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well together until everything is combined.
  4. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto hot waffle iron, let it cook through. (Approx 5 minutes per waffle)
  5. Serve immediately, topped with your favorite waffle toppings!

Very Coconut Vanilla Waffles

I love Coconut everything! So I recently replaced a few recipes ingredients I love with coconut milk. Prior to switching up the recipes with coconut milk, I was using almond milk. Coconut milk just gives it a different flavor and makes it a bit more sweeter.You don’t have to be anti-dairy milk to try this, but once you switch it up, I doubt you will want to go back!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 3/4 Cups Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar (I personally use Truvia)
  • 4 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • Dash  of salt
  • Honey or Maple Syrup to top with (I prefer honey)
  • Coconut flakes (optional)

Directions:

1.) Warm up waffle iron

2.) Mix wet ingredients together in large bowl, set aside.

3.) Sift dry ingredients together, slowly add to wet ingredient bowl.

4.) Let all ingredients sit for about 5 minutes, before cooking.

5.) Using a 1/2 Cup measuring cup, add batter to hot waffle iron. The key to having a crisp waffle, is to allow all steam to rise before removing waffle. Roughly 5 minutes per waffle, on medium-high heat. This batch of Very Coconut Vanilla Waffle batter will make roughly 8 waffles.

6.) Serve hot with honey or maple syrup, top with coconut flakes to make them extra coconutty!

This recipe is simple to make for a weekend brunch, enjoy!
