Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Maple Yogurt
By
SERVES: Makes 14 large waffles
SHARE

Pumpkin puree adds delicious fall flavor, natural sweetness, and a boost of vegetables to these classic waffles. A touch of brown sugar adds crispness. Loads of maple syrup is the real culprit with waffles and pancakes, so to slash the sugar, serve up these waffles with Maple Yogurt and fresh fruit. If you’d like to add some protein, sprinkle finely chopped pecans or walnuts on top of the batter after you pour it into the waffle maker.

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Whisk together the yogurt, maple syrup, and cinnamon in a serving bowl.

Step 2

Preheat a waffle maker to medium heat.

Step 3

Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl.

Step 4

Whisk together the milk, oil, butter, vanilla, eggs, and pumpkin in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Step 5

Add about ½ cup batter (or the amount called for in your waffle maker instructions) to the waffle maker and spread out with a silicone spatula. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer than indicated on the machine because the pumpkin makes the batter denser and so it takes longer to cook. You can check if they are cooked through by tearing off a corner of one of the waffles.

Step 6

Serve the waffles right away, with the Maple Yogurt and fresh fruit on the side.
