LOW-CARB PUMPKIN WAFFLES

 




LOW-CARB PUMPKIN WAFFLES

These tasty waffles are so perfect for the season.  I used the remainder of the pumpkin in the can after making my No-Bake White Chocolate Pumpkin Pudding Pie, which was very good by the way.  These waffles are wonderful spread with Cinnamon Butter - see post below!

 

2 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (500 mL)

2 tsp baking powder (10 mL)

11/2 tsp cinnamon (7 mL)

1/2 tsp baking soda (2 mL)

1/4 tsp nutmeg (1 mL)

1/8 tsp allspice (0.5 mL)

1/8 tsp salt (0.5 mL)

4 eggs

3/4 cup canned pumpkin (175 mL)

1/2 cup low-carb milk, OR whipping cream (125 mL)

Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 3/4 cup sugar (175 mL)

3 tbsp butter, melted (45 mL)

2 tsp olive oil (10 mL)

 

Plug waffle maker in to heat and brush forms with light olive oil. 

In large bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, allspice and salt. 

In medium bowl, whisk eggs and stir in pumpkin, low-carb milk, OR whipping cream, liquid sweetener, butter and olive oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients.  Mix well. 

Use 1/cup (75 mL) batter for each form.  Spread the batter evenly to cover the forms completely.  Close the lid of the waffle maker and set the timer for 4 minutes.  Check.  I actually found with my first ones I went a full 5 minutes.  Remove the waffles, brush forms with olive oil and repeat. 

Helpful Hints:  I usually pop my waffle in the pop-up toaster if I don’t eat it right away to get it crispy again.
