If you’re anything like me you still have many, many cans of pumpkin puree sitting in your cupboard leftover from this year’s Thanksgiving and Halloween celebrations. This week I’ll be posting a few of my favourite healthy pumpkin recipes to help you move through your stash a little quicker.
I love baking with pumpkin because it keeps my treats moist without having to use much oil. As a bonus, it also happens to be fabulously good for you. Here are just a few reasons why pumpkins are fall’s best health-promoting super food:
I hope you enjoy these healthy pumpkin waffles, and that they make your Monday a little sweeter. Stay tuned for my black bean + pumpkin brownie recipe and my favourite pumpkin spice muffins coming later this week.
We love these healthy pumpkin waffles on lazy fall mornings topped with some coconut yoghurt, real maple syrup and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.
Blend rolled oats in a high powered blender to create 'oat flour'. Mix oats, almond meal, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the pumpkin puree, almond milk, maple syrup (if using), flax eggs, oil and vanilla until well incorporated. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until well-mixed and cook in your waffle maker until browned and cooked through. Serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and fresh maple syrup.
