Sometimes we crave breakfast for dinner so why not make Pumpkin Apple Spice Waffles with some bacon. This is the perfect combo of sweet, salty and tangy. The crunch of apple and the mix of the pumpkin spice reminds me of the simpler times of fall. I also like the fact that these waffles are crispy and full of flavor. Also you can't go wrong with bacon and some blueberry served on the side! This 30 minute meal is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Pumpkin Apple Spice Waffles
Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 30 mins
For the pumpkin waffles
½ cup pureed pumpkin
¾ cup almond flour (for nut free: 3 tablespoons coconut flour and 1 tablespoon sunbutter)
¼ cup canned coconut milk
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoon maple syrup
2 eggs, whisked
⅛ teaspoon baking soda
⅛ teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon salt
For apple spice toppings
2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon maple syrup
½ tablespoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon allspice
⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
Heat up your waffle iron!! If you don’t have a waffle iron, you need to go buy one, or just make pancakes instead.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together coconut milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Then add the rest of the dry ingredients and pumpkin and mix together. Add a bit more coconut milk, if needed. The batter should be runny but still have a bit of girth to it. Ew, I just said girth.
Ladle into your waffle maker. Be careful, they expand a bit so they will be pour over if you get ladle happy.
Cook until done. Mine took about 3-4 minutes, I’d say.
While your waffles are cooking, add a couple tablespoons of coconut oil to a large skillet and add your sliced apples to the pan.
Mix around to help the apples coat in oil, add in some maple syrup, and sprinkle with your cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves and salt.
Add a splash of water to the pan and cover to help the apples become soft. Cook for around 10 minutes, making sure to mix occassionally so they don’t burn.
Once your pumpkin waffles are done cooking, add your apples on top along with a crap ton of maple syrup on top and/or coconut butter or regular butter.
Eat with bacon. Duh.
