Pumpkin, Gingerbread, Chocolate Waffles (Gluten-Free)

I really wanted 21 Day Fix approved waffles or pancakes this morning but didn’t have all of the ingredients for any of my existing recipes.  I decided to experiment with what I did have, and the outcome was delicious!

Servings:  2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1.5 tablespoons unsweet cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • chocolate chips (a few)
  • Honey or maple syrup for topping

21 Day Fix Containers (per single serving):

  • 1 yellow (oats)
  • 1 red (eggs, egg whites, yogurt)
  • 1/4 green (there’s so little pumpkin you don’t really have to count it unless you really want to…)
  • teaspoons (depends on how much honey/syrup you use)

Directions:

  1. Turn on your waffle iron and allow it to preheat
  2. Add all ingredients except chocolate chips and honey/maple syrup to blender (oats, eggs, pumpkin, cocoa powder, Greek yogurt, vanilla, salt, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, and nutmeg)
  3. Blend ingredients until fully mixed with no large oat pieces
  4. Separate batter into two equal amounts (I like to measure it in two measuring cups)
  5. Pour 1/2 of the batter into your iron; depending on the iron size, it may not fill the entire iron
  6. Put a few chocolate chips on top of batter and close iron
  7. Cook waffle according to your waffle iron instructions
  8. Repeat cooking process with second waffle
