Butternut Squash Waffles
Butternut squash waffles with fresh fruit
Preheat waffle iron, add butternut puree, oil, brown sugar and whisk.
Add almond milk and stir once more.
Add flour, baking powder and spices to a sifter and sift over wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.
Ideally, let batter rest for 5 minutes before cooking.
Once preheated, generously spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and spoon about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the center of the iron and cook according to your machine’s instructions. I like to set mine to the darkest setting so it gets extra crispy.
Once done, remove and place on cooling rack to let steam roll of and crisp a bit.
Add sliced fruit and Maple syrup, or whatever toppings you desire.
