Todays feature recipe for the Pumpkin and Pinterest series is Gluten-Free Pumpkin Waffles from Cats to Cooking. Swing over and show her some love for an excellent, pinnable recipe.

I was so excited to see this pin because I am a bit of a waffle snob. I love waffles, but they need to be cooked just right. Crispy on the outside and nice and moist in the middle.

This recipe had a short ingredient list and was gluten-free so I was excited to try them.

I am always looking for ways to switch thing up for school lunches and when I was preparing to make these beauties I decided to try it a little different.

Instead of using almond flour I used almond butter.

I took out the cashew milk.

I made the waffles with my daughters babycakes mini waffle maker. The batter is pretty thick so I used my little piping tool to pipe these into the little griddles. A spoon and spatula would have worked well also. Just spoon in and smooth. 

  
    
They turned out perfect for little hands. They actually turned out perfect for my big hands too.

   
 I let the boys sample them with a side of pumpkin yogurt.

The house smelled like there were thousands of nut butter fairies playing in the air around me.

  
I decide to make a big batch of these after the initial batch. Partially because the boys ate half of the first go around and partially because I loved the idea of packing these in the kids lunches for the week.

  
This recipe made about 52 mini waffles.

1 cup pumpkin purée

2 cups almond butter

5 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

Coconut oil for greasing waffle iron
