Here's  a quick healthy waffle recipe. Here in the Philippines we don't have pumpkin so I substituted it with our very own squash. Here's the original recipe for your reference.

Spiced Squash Waffle Recipe

  • 1 cup squash puree
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk or fresh milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the squash puree, buttermilk, egg, and melted butter. Stir to combine.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining (dry) ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until moistened.
  3. Preheat waffle iron. Spray hot waffle iron with oil or non-stick cooking spray or use silicone brush to spread some oil, spoon batter to waffle iron, and cook until done. Follow your own waffle maker instructions.
  4. Serve waffles plain, with maple syrup, and/or whipped cream and powdered sugar- depending on your  preference.

Scoop 1/4 cup batter into the waffle maker.

I am using the Asahi waffle maker -available in Robinson's Tacloban Appliance Center.
