Notes

While cooking the other waffles, keep the prepared waffles warm in 200 degree F oven.

Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  Belgian waffle mix, such as Krusteaz
  • ¾  Cup  low-fat buttermilk
  • ½  Cup  wheat germ, such as Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ
  • ¼  Cup  canned pumpkin
  • 3  Tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • 2  Tablespoons  brown sugar
  • ½  Teaspoon  cinnamon
  • egg
  • Maple syrup, jam, or powdered sugar, for serving

Directions

Preheat a waffle iron. If using a nonstick waffle iron, no oil is necessary. If using one that requires greasing, follow manufacturer’s instructions.

In large mixing bowl, whisk together the waffle mix, buttermilk, wheat germ, pumpkin, vegetable oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, and egg until combined. Add ⅓ of the batter to the center of the preheated waffle iron. Close the lid and cook according to the waffle maker instructions, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a fork, gently remove the waffle from the iron. Repeat for the remaining waffles.

Serve waffles with maple syrup, jam or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
