Perfect Pumpkin Waffles

Fall is the best season, and I only appreciate it more after having missed out on it while living in Phoenix.  Fall fashion, football, New England foliage... I'm even learning how to knit!  Fall also gives me an excuse to indulge in anything and everything pumpkin.  You will find me drinking pumpkin ale while watching the fall television premieres, moisturizing with pumpkin lotion, eating pumpkin spice ice cream (with hot fudge) at Fomu, surrounding myself with pumpkin candles... I even have my kitty eating pureed pumpkin.  In addition to all this, I've been doing lots of baking.  You can find my recipe for ooey, gooey chocolate chip pumpkin bread here, and a great recipe for pumpkin muffins at the Post Punk Kitchen- so delicious.  Another one of my favorites is pumpkin waffles.  Anyone who stays with me gets treated to vegan waffles- if you visit in the fall, they will be of the pumpkin variety.  Here's the recipe:

Ingredients
3/4 cup All-Purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1-1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 Tbs unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 cup canned pumpkin (puree, not pie mix)
1 Tbs canola oil

Directions
1.  Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
2.  Combine the milk and oil separately, then add to dry ingredients.
3.  Add the pumpkin and apple sauce to the bowl and stir until mixed thoroughly.
4.  Make waffles using your waffle maker!


This recipe is really easy and the results are amazing.  Definitely a must if you are a pumpkin addict.

Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive
