Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin season is in full effect, and why not add it to a breakfast favorite? During the week I keep it pretty simple, but these Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles will bring so much comfort on a Saturday or Sunday morning before getting the day started.

Prep: 10m
Cook: 40m
Ready In: 50m



1 Cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup wheat germ
⅓ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
¾ cup milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1 egg white
½ cup chopped pecans


Preheat a waffle iron according to instructions. Combine flour, wheat germ, sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.
Beat together milk, pumpkin puree, butter, oil, applesauce, whole egg, and egg white. Stir flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture along with the pecans.
Ladle the batter onto the preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
