Pumpkin Waffles (Gluten Free)

Pumpkin Waffles - a quick and fun breakfast

My kids love a quick, ready to eat breakfast. Waffles are great for that. These are so quick to put together, but also, after I make them, I wrap the extras, put them in the fridge and then they are ready to pop into the toaster or use in a sandwich (my favorite - although not with pumpkin flavored ones.. haha)

There is something about the little pockets, which make waffles seem very fancy to my kids too. They really feel like it's a special treat, which is always nice, especially in a recipe that has only 1-2 tablespoons of sugar in it.

If you don't like syrup, like me, these are great with just butter, or nut butter. My daughter thinks they would be good with cream cheese on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon. My family assures me that they are great with maple syrup though. So top them how you like, either way - delicious. (I'm going to try cream cheese next)

And I guess the flavors here might be more suited to fall, but I have a whole bunch of pureed pumpkin in the freezer that I wanted to use up. I hope you try these and like them too.

What's your favorite waffle flavor? Or favorite quick breakfast?

    1. Count me in for waffles and if they are pumpkin waffles just give them all to me, I refuse to share! These look amazing, I can just see myself sandwiching some ice cream between them and calling it a good day!

      1. I never thought of making them into an ice cream sandwich, I'll have to try it now! Thank you for the comment!
