Pumpkin Spice Waffles

gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, shred-friendly

If fall was a waffle.  It would be this pumpkin spice waffle.  Because it would still fit into skinny jeans.  Because it’s healthyish.

Tiny helpers.

One bowl.  I don’t care how many culinary rules this breaks.  One. Bowl. 4life.

Look at that little face.  The most precious.  He has more experience than lots of adults in the kitchen! He’s my most consistent helper.  He can fry his own egg whites now.  (He doesn’t like yolks)  He carefully gets the eggs out of the fridge with his blue stool.  Chooses the skillet he wants to use.  Cracks the eggs and separates them in the pan.  And patiently waits to flip them.  With my supervision and assistance in turning the burner off and on of course.  He’s going to make a great husband and Dad someday!

I suck at laundry.  I don’t even own an iron.  But I can work miracles on a waffle iron.  You win some, you lose some.

And what would a pumpkin spice waffle be without french vanilla maple syrup?  A pumpkin spice waffle without french vanilla maple syrup.
