Pumpkin Waffles

This last weekend I decided we needed a little fall goodness for breakfast.

I couldn't find a recipe for whole wheat pumpkin waffles that looked just right for me.
So I ending up playing around and this is the recipe I ended up with:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
(then I added a handful of brown sugar because I thought it needed a little something)
1 T. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
nutmeg & ginger (sorry I'm not very good at measuring things!)
pinch (or so) salt
2 eggs
4 T. melted butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (that is what I measured- then I kept adding more because I REALLY like pumpkin- so I could have ended up with closer to a cup!)
enough milk to thin the batter to the right consistency

I started out with the Pecans on top, because Bobby wasn't sure that he wanted them, but then for the last few, I chopped them up and cooked them in the waffles- YUM! I would suggest cooking them in!

Many of you are better (and more precise) chefs than I, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love them!

Ummm...why was I not invited to your whole wheat pumpkin waffle breakfast? I used to think we were friends....

Did you just make this up on your own? I am so afraid of trying to cook without a concise recipe to follow. And I never vary a recipe unless someone else has tried it first! They look and sound so good!

It is a oombo of things I've made before. I thought about adding pumpkin to the traditional waffle recipe I make, but decided to check other peoples recipes out because i wanted to see if they did anything different using whole wheat. But I didn't really like those recipes so i just did basic with a few add ons like the spices etc. But it isn't too different than a normal one- just added spices, pumpkin and wheat flour instead of white...

I made them on Halloween! They were so tasty. I wish I would have kept adding more pumpkin. Both Scott and I agreed that we could have added even more! Thanks for the recipe!
