I’m sorry that updates have been so sporadic of the late. We’ve been going through a lot of changes here. But, more on that later.
Right now, I MUST share with you the easiest fall breakfast ever, semi-homemade pumpkin chocolate chip waffles. (Okay, not as easy as eating cereal but infinitely tastier) It’s very simple and starts with a pre-made waffle mix (Shh… don’t tell). Swapping out the oil listed on the box with pumpkin puree adds a yummy fall flavor. A dash of pumpkin pie spice and a handful of chocolate chips make these waffles irresistible.
To make it even easier for those hectic mornings, you could make a huge batch of these waffles and freeze them in plastic bags. The frozen waffles could be popped into a toaster and they’ll taste freshly made.
Waffle Mix (I like this one, but any brand will work)
1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1/4- 1/2 cup Canned Pumpkin (exact amount will depend on your brand of mix)
1-2 Eggs (exact amount will depend on your brand of mix)
Water or Milk (depending on your brand of mix suggests)
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
Waffle iron (or waffle maker)
Pre-heat the waffle iron on medium heat. Add dry waffle mix and pumpkin pie spice to a large bowl. Make a well in the center, then add canned pumpkin (the pumpkin will substitute for the oil required in the mix. Use the amount listed on the mix), and follow the rest of the recipe as stated on the waffle mix box. Add the chocolate chips and mix the batter until no large lumps remain. Spray the waffle iron thoroughly with cooking spray. Cook as suggested on the waffle mix box. (I usually add the batter, then flip the waffle iron over. Allow it to cook for 5 minutes, then flip again and cook for another 2-3 minutes. ) Serve with whipped cream or maple syrup.
Are you ready for fall(and the onslaught of all things pumpkin)? Or are you still holding onto summer?
