Pumpkin Waffles

HELLO, SEPTEMBER!!!  It’s officially my favorite time of the year.  Well, my favorite time of the year when I lived in a state that changed seasons that is.  I love everything about the fall… breezy days, colorful trees, pumpkin-spiced everything and apples!!!  Let’s not forget about soups, hoodies, FOOTBALL and BOOTS.  If only I could wear hoodies and boots in Miami.  *Insert sad face*  For me, it gets me in the mood for the holidays…which let’s not forget are right around the corner!!!  🙂

I’m getting pretty excited about the holidays this year.  Gaby’s about to turn TWO and I think she’ll really enjoy the whole Christmas experience this year.  I’m already thinking about her presents and traditions I want to start with her.  I’m going to be honest and say, 2017 hasn’t been my most favorite year.  There have been a few ups and a whole lot of downs that have kept us on a constant roller coaster for far too long.  I’m ready for a new year.  New beginnings.  A fresh start.  And new adventures!

In order to get me through the next few months… I need THESE waffles!!!  And quite frankly, so do YOU!!! 🙂  As always, they’re super easy to make and I’m almost certain that you’re going to love them and want to make them year round…  Now.  I did test this recipe out with TWO different flours.  I used an organic all-purpose flour and an organic gluten free all-purpose flour.  Both turned out beautifully.  I will say I did have to add a little more milk to the batch with the GF flour.  Other than that – perfection!  If you have leftovers all you have to do is throw the waffles on a sheet pan in a 300 degree oven and let them warm up again!
