It's officially the season of all things pumpkin and I have to admit, I'd rather drink THIS or THIS than everyone's beloved PSL, but I can definitely get on board with some pumpkin treats. Every Autumn we make several batches of pumpkin muffins by mixing spice cake mix with a can of pumpkin. They're super easy and delicious, so I thought I would try the same method with pancakes or waffles.
I used Birch Benders six grain cinnamon pancake & waffle mix that you can purchase at Whole Foods and a can of 100% pure pumpkin puree.
Heat up the waffle iron while you're mixing your ingredients. Spray iron to make sure the waffles don't stick.
Mix 2 cups of the waffle mix with 1 cup of pumpkin puree. Add a tablespoon of oil and then one tablespoon of water at a time until the mix is moist, but not too wet. (I usually add 2-3 TBSP of water)
Add about a half cup of the mixture and add more if the waffles are too small when they come out. Every waffle iron is different, so adjust accordingly.
Top with butter and maple syrup and GO. TO. TOWN.
