Pumpkin Waffles

I want to say, “Last pumpkin recipe for 2020!” But that would probably be a lie. I know it, and you probably know it, if you have been around my site for any length of time.

Wednesday nights are often Waffle Wednesday’s at my house. Breakfast for Dinner (or Brinner) is always a “winner dinner” at our house. We all love it. It helps me in planning to have themes for our meals on certain nights. Each day of the week has a theme from which I base my meal planning.

I had an open can of pumpkin puree so I decided to make the waffles on this particular night pumpkin-flavored. It’s nearly Thanksgiving, so I have to capitalize, right?

The recipe is super easy, and I completely cheated by using Bisquik pancake and waffle mix. My husband stocked up a few months ago, and I feel like it needs to be used. So I incorporated this into the recipe. Easy peezy!

An easy, pumpkin waffle recipe that can be enjoyed for breakfast, dinner, or anytime this fall season.


  • 2 cups Bisquik mix
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 100 g egg whites
  • 4 TBS I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light
  • 2-4 TBS maple syrup or sugar free maple syrup


  1. Preheat the waffle iron.
  2. Whisk together all ingredients. Add water until desired consistency is reached.
  3. You can cover and store in the refrigerator until mealtime, or you can make immediately.
  4. If you do use it later, you might need to add more water or Unsweetened Almond Milk.
  5. Cook waffles according to your waffle iron – size and duration. I recommend cooking these on a high setting. I put mine to the hottest temperature to crisp as much as possible.
  6. Serve with toppings of choice.

Things I Am Loving

Wow what a week!!! Election crazies, busy schedules, a lot of heavy things going on with people I love. Could there be any more crazy in 2020!?

I am ready to focus on those things in my life that are good – that are bringing me happiness and life this week. It’s time to focus on the blessings. There is a season for everything, and I do believe we have to make time to mourn and go through the hard. However, it’s also good to be reminded of all the good as well – and sometimes it’s the littlest of things.

For starters my family. Man am I thankful for these people in my life that grow me, challenge me, make me smile and laugh, do the daily grind with me. I could go on and on over my love for my husband and kiddos. We recently got family pictures taken, and I am in love! Jamie did an incredible job!!! So thankful for these snapshots into our world right now.

Secondly – lunch dates. This is something John and I are attempting once a week. With all of our kids in school, we are finding this to be the easiest time to carve out for weekly dates. Our nights are so jam packed right now with sports, work, meetings, etc. Even our weekend nights include kids’ sports practices and games. Dates are just not easy nor really possible in the evenings most weeks, so lunch dates are perfect. We carve an hour out of our Thursdays and catch up. It’s amazing how much you can catch up on when uninterrupted and dialed in! We catch up on work, business, strategy, family issues and goals, life, etc. It’s been awesome.

I am such a sucker for words and quotes. Most of my home decor includes a quote or words of some sort. They are inspiring and uplifting to me. So naturally, I also love graphic tees. This week I have been wearing my graphic tees exclusively. My heart needs the reminder of the words. Today this shirt just seemed right. “In the waiting God is working.” I got this particular tee off of Crazy Cool Threads.

Also, pictured here are these blue light glasses. I ordered these because I keep hearing about the benefits of these glasses to shield us from all the blue light given off by all of our electronics. I am on electronics all day – my computer screen for hours, phone, and then television for a bit at night as well. I get tension headaches pretty regularly. And although my eyes are still pretty good, they are aging.

So far I am really liking these! I don’t know if it’s mental or not, but I feel like they reduce the tension the computer screen puts on my eyes. Also, I feel like the tension in my head has reduced as well! They are super reasonable on Amazon, so I figure it’s definitely worth a try!

Also pictured above and below are the bracelets I am loving. I love a good set of bracelets, and my friend at Shoebox Market has the best bracelets! I can’t get enough.

I finished this book this week. I loved it! It was very well-written and an amazing insight into the hard world of single motherhood as well as poverty. The perspective was very eye opening, and I loved the insight the read gave me.

Lastly, would it be a typical blog post if I didn’t talk about food? I don’t think so. This breakfast has been a hit this week. I made a batch a couple of days ago, and made a double batch the very next day. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal. We love baked oatmeal, and this recipe is next level.

What are some things you are loving right now? I love to hear about it all!!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

We love baked oatmeal around here. It’s a hit! In my opinion there is nothing better than having a fresh baked breakfast first thing in the morning, and it’s even better if there is no prep involved first thing in the morning. Who has time to cook or prep food in the morning? I personally don’t. I don’t give myself enough time to have time for much food preparation. So I prepare this the day before, cover and refrigerate. So the morning of, I pop it in the oven as my oven is preheating (because I pull the pan directly from the refrigerator). It makes my house smell amazing, and we get to have a warm, sweet, delicious, bowl of comfort. I can’t think of a better way to start my day. Can you?

This is a reduced sugar recipe. You can certainly add more sugar for sweetness, but I personally don’t think it needs it. My kids like to sprinkle a little brown sugar on top when serving. It gives a little added sweetness plus that sugary crunch. We all like a little Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk on top as well.

Also, I just add cinnamon to the recipe; however, some additional pumpkin pie spice would be amazing! My kids prefer less spice, so I stick with the cinnamon. I just feel like I need to give you that option if you prefer more spice.

Without further ado – the recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
