pumpkin waffles

I had to make something special for Jake's breakfast one morning, since it always seems to be scrambled eggs. I was feeling extra nice a few days ago and decided on pumpkin waffles. These were super yummy, and great topped with REAL maple syrup. It only took me about 15 minutes to whip up so don't worry about having to wake up too much earlier, and remember, breakfast is worth it... especially a yummy treat every now and then. My mom used to wake me up with waffles covered with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and chocolate syrup about 2 or 3 mornings per week before school. I tell you what, that woman is awesome. But anyway, I didn't want to make these too over the top considering he gets over the top food a little too often at work :)

1 3/4 cup GF flour
3 T light brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 T pumpkin pie spice (2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp clove)
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1 egg
2 T pear sauce (or apple sauce)
2 T cider vinegar

Blend all dry ingredients, then blend all wet ingredients. Mix the wet into the dry then place about 1/2 cup onto waffle maker for about 4 minutes. You can also make these into pancakes simply by putting them onto a griddle and cooking for 2 minutes on each side. If desired, you might want to sweeten the mixture a little by decreasing the amount of milk and adding that much apple cider.
