It can’t be helped, pumpkin season is here and its time to embrace it. It’s a rainy Saturday morning here and we are enjoying pajamas and cuddles. Seeing as I’m still in my stretchy pants, why not indulge in some pumpkin sweetness? I see no reason to make waffles or pancakes from scratch, I’ve done it before and they taste great but it seems like a tedious waste of time on a Saturday morning when I’m trying to hang out with the family. Kodiak Cakes pancake and waffle mix is really tasty and healthy made with whole wheat and oat flour and only things I can pronounce. I think its fabulous but you can make these with any mix of your choice. Simply add 1/2 cup of pumpkin purée, and 2 tbsp of cinnamon sugar (I buy the cinnamon sugar blend for making cinnamon toast on busy mornings...so good!). Cook time varies according to your waffle iron (be sure to coat the pan with vegetable oil or non-stick spray). I added about a minute after the iron said they were done to get extra crispy outside, the inside was still soft and fluffy. These waffles came together in a snap, made the house smell divine, and tasted just right.
