I made a big batch of waffles and put them up in the freezer, they make a great on the spot snack. I just stick them into the toaster and away I go.

Great Waffles

We have been on this waffle kick ever since I got this "very inexpensive" waffle maker! I've used it for everything, even making sandwiches...Waffle Sandwiches that is! These Pumpkin waffles were wonderful...Think I will do them again for Breakfast Thanksgiving Morning!

Adding some Nutrition

The whole family gave these a five star especially with the pumpkin syrup. We often have breakfast for dinner so I liked the idea of the pumpkin adding more nutrition to the meal.

waffles into pancakes

by C. Christina , on Oct. 2006

I followed this recipe with a few variations. I used more maple in the syrup, and I made pancakes instead of waffles. I loved it. It brought Fall to our home. My family and I don't like pumpkin that much, but we feel it is a Fall must. This brought Fall and pumpkin together in a delightful way.

They only seem nutty

by B. Bill , MURFREESBORO, NC on Apr. 2006

I was not particularly drawn to this recipe because of the title. A mixture of nuts and pumpkin did not appeal to my conservative taste, but once I tried them, I was sold. A really unique taste - and easy!

Something different

A very new kind of waffle, the family all wanted more so this has become a new favorite for all of us.

Very good. Can even add whole wheat to make it more nutrious.
