Spiced Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles to Make with Kids

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles

My daughter and I LOVE having fun with our heart-shaped waffle maker. We make all kinds of different waffles year round. Last Valentine’s Day we made these awesome chocolate waffles and for Mother’s Day we made a stack of malted cinnamon waffles. Yum! Lately we’ve been in to making pumpkin waffles. We devour all things pumpkin in this house so when I suggested we add some pumpkin to our waffles my daughter jumped at the idea. To give them a nice healthy kick I added some whole wheat flour and didn’t pile on sugary toppings. We just stuck with a drizzle of classic Vermont maple syrup. These turned out to be a huge hit and we’ve made several batches since I took this photo. They may just be our favorite fall breakfast.

Spiced Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles

1 cup whole wheat flour

½ cup all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup pumpkin puree from a can

1 cup whole milk

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1.  Whisk together the flours, sugar, soda, powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the pumpkin, whole milk, eggs and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold everything together.

2. Warm up your waffle make and pour the batter onto it once it is ready. Cook according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve with maple syrup.
