Grown-ups should always be involved in any activities involving heat, sharp knives and appliances.
Pumpkin puree adds delicious fall flavor, natural sweetness, and a boost of vegetables to these classic waffles. A touch of brown sugar adds crispness.

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.
