Easy {Vegan} Pumpkin Waffles

{Rainie}


I'm dreaming of the weekend so it's the perfect time to share a fall weekend morning recipe!

Last Sunday, we had a pretty slow and enjoyable start to the day. Since we don't get too many of those we took advantage of it to try out our waffle maker. October had just begun so, naturally, I went with a pumpkin version. JT is not a basic white girl, so I made plain waffles for him. Back to the more important part: you should make these pumpkin waffles. I did use waffle mix because we had some leftover from summer lake days. JT checked the ingredients list before he bought and chose the Log Cabin Natural version  (a man after my own heart).

This is a vegan recipe since there are no eggs, milk, or butter.  I'm not one to push vegan...I just can't fathom life without yogurt (among other things) but it's worth mentioning. I also hesitate putting the word "vegan" on the title because people assume it won't be good (doesn't "easy" sound much better?), but trust me, these are delicious. 

Love, your meat eating dietitian. 

Easy Pumpkin Waffles

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup pancake/waffle mix
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts *optional
  • 1/4 cup applesauce 
Directions:
  1. Mix all ingredients until well combined
  2. Place1 cup mixture in the middle of a heated and oiled (sprayed) waffle iron
  3. Let down waffle iron top and let it cook through until the light change signal

So easy! Top with 2 tablespoons of real maple syrup. It's amazing how much different and better it is than the corn syrup version we all grew up eating. It's rather expensive at about $6 a bottle, but due to the sweetness, you only need a tiny amount so it goes just as far as the cheap stuff. 

Do you prefer waffles or pancakes?
