Whole Wheat Pumpkin Carrot Waffles

I know it’s not even CLOSE to pumpkin spice season, but lately waffles have been a go to breakfast for my son and I. So, I wanted to add some hidden veggies to our waffles since it’s one of his favorite things to eat. As an added perk you can often find pumpkin puree cheaper during the summer. Win! Down the road, I want to try a couple more hidden veggie combinations in our waffles like… spinach & blueberry, beets & carrots, or zucchini & apple!! So many possibilities!

I think my waffle maker is one the best purchases I ever made. I love both pancakes and waffles…but I have no knack for actually making the perfect pancake. Waffle makers aren’t expensive (mine was around $20), they’re easy to use, and they require much less clean up!! Perfect mom tool! Enjoy 🙂
