Fall is officially here! The crisp air, fallen leaves and the smell of warm spices are my favorite things about this season! Like a lot of people, my other favorite thing is pumpkin spiced everything!!
These waffles are packed with flavor, and are cooked into crispy golden brown squares that are fluffy and soft inside.
They will spice up any breakfast and are a great choice for a fall brunch!
They are also easy to make, and perfect for when you don't know what to do with that leftover canned pumpkin. They can easily be frozen which means you can have these pumpkin waffles for breakfast, or dinner and is perfect for those who are rushing to cook breakfast in the morning!
Oliver is very photogenic, and is always up for a photoshoot.. only if it involves food!

*If not eaten right away, preheat your oven to 200 degree F. Set a rack in the oven, and place the waffles there to keep warm.
*Waffles can be frozen up to 3 months. Allow them to cool completely, then transfer them to airtight plastic bag and place them in freezer. To thaw, preheat a toaster oven, or a traditional oven and heat them until crispy.
