Pumpkin Chai Spiced Waffles
Fluffy pumpkin waffles with chai spices and made with whole wheat flour. These wholesome waffles make for a great holiday breakfast.
- 2 cups whole wheat bread flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Transfer to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Lightly grease a waffle iron with butter or margarine. Turn it on to your desired setting (I used dark).
Once hot, scoop about ¾ cup of the waffle batter and spread on the waffle maker. Close and let cook for 5-6 minutes or until cooked to your liking. This will make the crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with coconut whipped cream, maple syrup, fruit and/or nut butter.
Suggested toppings: Sunflower seed butter, spiced chia applesauce, pumpkin butter, butter, maple syrup, berries, cinnamon sugar, coconut whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
I used almond milk in this recipe, but other milks will work.
