Easy 5-Minute Pumpkin Waffles

The girls had a sleepover last night.  They slept in pretty late, so when they woke they were famished and wanted breakfast right away.  I wanted to make them something delicious yet healthy that I could whip up quickly.  I hadn't intended for this experience to be blog fodder, but my little experiment in making quick pumpkin waffles turned out so well, that I wanted to share it.

I always keep a box of Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking and Pancake Mix in the pantry.  It's a great little versatile mix to keep around for when you're in a pinch. It was great to be able to grab the box from my pantry and have the pumpkin waffle batter ready five minutes later!

Easy Pumpkin Waffles

2 cups Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking Mix
1 cup lowfat milk
2 egg whites
3 Tablespoons oil
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon each ground ginger, cloves, nutmeg and allspice (or you can use a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice)
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and mix to combine with a wire whisk until smooth.  Pour into a preheated, greased waffle iron and bake according to manufacturers directions.  I use a VillaWare mini Belgian waffle maker; 1/4 cup batter on setting #5.  The recipe made 12 small waffles.
