Tis the season for pumpkin spice! Unfortunately, the cooler weather has come, at least where I live, and the first thing I think of is pumpkin spice. With a fall crisp in the air there is nothing like pumpkin spice waffles, especially when made with clean ingredients!
These pumpkin spice waffles taste indulgent but are guilt free. No joke, with the first bite my eyes widened and I melted, they are that good.
What you’ll need
Oat Flour. I love using this because it is a complex carb, meaning it will break down slower and you won’t get a blood sugar spike.
Himalayan Salt. My everyday salt, full of essential minerals, helps balance your pH and electrolyte levels.
Pumpkin Spice. You can buy it, or if you want to make your own. I will leave the measurements down below!
Egg. I haven’t tried with a flax egg, if you do and it works, let me know.
Almond milk. Or any other nut milk.
Coconut oil. A great healthy fat and medium chain triglyceride that helps you burn fat.
Pumpkin Puree. Not pumpkin pie filling, pumpkin puree, only ingredient should be pumpkin.
Maple Syrup. A great way to add natural sweetness and boosts the immune system.
Vanilla Extract. Adds a great dose of flavour.
These pumpkin spice waffles made the house smell amazing, and they also freeze really well, I have some in my freezer. When I take them from the freezer I just pop them in the toaster and I am good to go!
Feel free to top them with whatever you like. I like a little bit of maple syrup, I got some fresh maple syrup from a farm I visited while at the cottage and let me just say there is a big difference between that and what you buy at the grocery store. Bananas I think would also complement it well, or a drizzle of nut butter!
