Spice up your morning routine with these quick and easy waffles. Kretschmer added pumpkin for a delicious flavor treat and wheat germ for a nutritious boost that will get your day off to a great start.
While cooking the other waffles, keep the prepared waffles warm in 200 degree F oven.
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.
