Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles

I mentioned in an earlier post that I love pumpkin...pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies etc. but in all my baking with this fabulous puree, I have never made pumpkin waffles. Never even thought about it, but what a wonderful idea! The other night I came across this recipe as I was reading through my new Taste of Home magazine and thought they sounded so good that I fixed these the very next evening for dinner. These were very simple to whip up and were perfect for our crazy, busy night. These are undoubtedly, unquestionably delish. I added mini-chocolate chips because I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These Belgian waffles were wonderfully crispy on the outsides and the taste of the pumpkin slathered in butter and syrup was yummy. I can't imagine fixing ordinary waffles anytime soon.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles
1 cup all-purpost flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups milk
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
4 1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk the egg, milk, pumpkin and butter; stir into dry ingredients until blended. Fold in pecans.

Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown.

I think I HAVE to try these! We love waffles here! Our favorites are either gingerbread waffles or whole grain waffles. {grin}
