Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

Have any leftover pumpkin puree in your possession? Make breakfast! These pumpkin pecan waffles are not only seasonally appropriate, but delicious.

If there’s any chance you have pumpkin puree still lying around, do what we did and throw it into your breakfast. My dad always makes his own pumpkin puree and normally around this time of year my dad makes pumpkin pancakes, which we’ve had plenty of, but this time he mixed it into waffles with pecans (or walnuts as pictured). I love the texture and flavor of the little bits of pecan throughout the waffle.

Ingredients call for milk but instructions say buttermilk?

Sorry, you can use either but I did use milk. I forgot to change the instructions when I adapted it from my buttermilk waffles recipe.
