A Very Pumpkin Birthday

I am sure you all remember Julie, the blogger behind This Gal Cooks!  I met Julie when I stumbled across Marvelous Mondays, and then the Spiked! Recipe Challenge that she co-hosts with Carrie every other month.  She is also the ring leader behind our facebook blogging group, that started with a Giveaway last spring.  We all had so much fun working together, that we kept the group going after the giveaway ended.

My contribution to this Very Pumpkin Party, is these delicious Pumpkin Waffles.  They are light, and fluffy and perfect on a fall morning.  I kept them simple, by sprinkling them with toasted pecans and drizzling them with pure maple syrup…Yum!

Feel free to go crazy and create an apple cider syrup or even use my Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Syrup.  The possibilities are endless! 🙂

Happy Birthday Julie, I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Yummy Yum! My husband is a HUGE pancake/waffle fan. I usually don’t go for them…UNLESS…they have something special like pumpkin or blueberries in them. Then I’m all over that. These look awesome!

    What a great way to celebrate Julie’s birthday, with pumpkin, pumpkin, and more pumpkin! Love the waffles, Lisa. We’re on the same wavelength, because I just posted pumpkin waffles yesterday too. 🙂 I love that you used coconut milk. I know your lactose intolerant, but still! I love the stuff.
