Food: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles with Maple Cinnamon Butter.

I know. These were supposed to be a healthy breakfast but then it turned into a sweet indulgence. They are worth it.

Whole Wheat and Flaxseed Meal makes you feel good about eating these. The maple cinnamon butter does too.

And I can’t forget the pumpkin.

I am determined to keep pumpkin in my diet forever – I mean it shouldn’t just be brought around the Holidays.

They look pathetic without butter.

  1. Hey, yogurt is good for you, too, and an egg is a whole food. Beautiful waffles: I make them a lot and will be sure to try these — in fact, I’m making pumpkin bread today. Have you tried a pumpkin baked oatmeal yet?

  2. P.S. You will get lighter waffles if you separate the egg. Beat the egg white first (while the beaters are clean). Then beat the egg yolk with the rest of the liquids and fold in the egg white at the end.
