It’s nearly Halloween! It’s only fitting to share these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles for the spooky day!
Are your little ones ready for Halloween? We will start celebrating this weekend but I’m anxious to take them again Monday! I just love fall and of course the fun little holiday of Halloween. We don’t do the scary stuff for Halloween, but we do love fall festivals and letting the kids dress up.
I thought it was only fitting to serve these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Waffles on Halloween, don’t you think? If not for breakfast then making these for dinner is another options too. I love these waffles topped with warm maple syrup and butter. I feel like I’m eating dessert for breakfast. I decided to add chocolate chips too, I did white chocolate chips but you can do either. It just gives the waffles an added layer of sweetness.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles
- 1 2/3 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup of Oil
- 2 Tbsp Water
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Canned Pumpkin
- 2 Cups of Flour (or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour)
- 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
- 2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
- Preheat the waffle iron.
- Combine all ingredients in order in a large mixing bowl.
- Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and add about a cup of batter on it or enough to fill the iron and then finish as instructed with the waffle iron you are using.
- Repeat these steps, spraying each time until all batter has been used.
- Serve with butter and maple syrup.
Note: I typically leave mine on the iron about a minute longer than when it is ready to be sure it's nice and cooked on the inside. The amount of these will vary depending on if you are making regular waffles or Belgian waffles.
Now, of course the good thing is you can eat these on the go too and leave the syrup off, I don’t know about you but I remember as a kid just taking off as soon as possible. We didn’t really care what was for dinner, we just took off and got as much candy as we could. When we were little we made out like bandits! Our neighborhood even did a hayride and hot chocolate, so we would catch a ride to move around the neighborhood when we got tired. It was such a fun time and I love that my kids get to experience that same fun…of course in a little bit of a different way.
Sometimes I wish we could go back to those good ole’ days where it at least felt a little safer to wander the streets, now I question what my parents were actually thinking? I feel like I can’t let my kids out of my sight, but it’s such a different time.
So as you get your ghost and goblins ready or in our case Katerina Ballerina and a Skeleton…load them up with a few waffles!
