Pumpkin Pancakes with Candied Walnuts

6 Flares 6 Flares ×

Pumpkin is my favorite fall flavor. Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars, and even pumpkin martinis- I love them all.

Last week while out to breakfast, I came across a spiced fall waffle stuffed with carrot and flax seed, then smothered in a pumpkin cream cheese sauce and sprinkled with candied pecans. It was heavenly.

As we made the trek home, I began brainstorming ways to recreate the ultimate fall waffle that I had just consumed.

I knew the recreation wouldn’t be a problem; however, I wanted to make this several more times before the holiday season, and I’d rather not walk away from the table feeling guilty for my breakfast contents.

I found the perfect way to clean up this diner treat into a fall breakfast without all the guilt.

    Does the pumpkin have to fresh pie pumpkins or can it be canned pumpkin?

      I’ve used both and the pancakes come out well either way, but since it’s a morning meal the canned variety has been the easiest option.
