Enjoy these decadent gingerbread waffles with a hot cup of your favourite nourishtea. We recommend a full bodied black tea like our Duke of Earl to best compliment the spicy flavours in this recipe. Your winter will feel warmer in no time!

You will need:

  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour* (or 3/4 cup of unbleached all purpose flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour mixed)
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • Slightly less than 1 cup of milk (Between 3/4 and a full cup)
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Add egg, molasses, pumpkin puree, oil, brown sugar and whisk. Add 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. (set to darker setting if you prefer crispier waffles)
  • Once done, remove and place on cooling rack to let steam roll of and crisp up a bit.
  • Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
