Easy Pumpkin Nut Butter Waffles

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

Instructions

Plug in and preheat waffle iron on low setting.

Put all ingredients in blender.

Blend until smooth.

Spray or brush oil onto waffle iron 

Pipe or spoon mixture onto waffle iron and smooth. 

Close the waffle iron and let cook about 5 minutes. If the waffle iron is still steaming, let cook a bit longer.

Open waffle iron, remove waffles with rubber spatula.

Sriracha Pumpkin Hummus

Sriracha Pumpkin Hummus from The Recipe Runner

 

Garbanzo beans and Pumpkin.
I’m simply going to leave that there for you to churn over for a second.
At first glance, you may say, “I’ll pass on that one.” If that is you, then you are missing OUT.
Initially, my brain was like, “this might be good.” I love, love, love… yes that’s three loves for Sriracha. I confess, I put it on most things, including my pizza. Please tell me that I am not alone! My family still looks at me like I’ve sprouted a third eye as I delicately drizzle Sriracha over my pizza like it’s a French confection freshly popped from the oven. But hey, my taste buds say yes, so who am I to say no?


This Sriracha Pumpkin Hummus has become my new Fall favorite.

 

Yep, it has TKO’d my previous “nameless” choice.

I made this humorously simple recipe at about 8:30 this morning.

I then sliced a cucumber and a few bell peppers.



Performed the ritualistic “taste test.”


“Oh, Now that’s good!”
Clicked a few pictures.


“Taste tested” a few more times.
Edited a few pictures…

Taste test
By the time I was done editing and posting my “taste test” bowl was empty, and the cucumber and bell peppers were well on their way to being extinct.
Need I say more. Now you just need to make it and feel the bliss I plan on repeating soon.
