Erin SheehanIs there any food that doesn’t benefit from a little pumpkin? Or better yet, a whole lot of pumpkin? A favorite in our house at this time of year is pumpkin waffles. They make a nice Sunday brunch entrée or a special treat to share with your family.

I bought a waffle maker at a garage sale about five years ago for $3, having long wanted one. Since then I’ve managed to use it nearly every weekend. It was certainly a good buy, although I suppose eating all of those waffles hasn’t helped my waistline very much! Waffles do have quite a few calories and are carb-heavy, but they are so delicious, how can you resist?

Here’s one of my go-to waffle recipes. Super easy to put together and has enough sweetness that you may not need syrup. The recipe happens to be vegan, too! I guarantee you will not miss the eggs. Enjoy!
