Pumpkin Gluten-Free Waffles

Pumpkin Gluten-Free Waffles

Fall is the time of year when we get to indulge in all the comforting joys of harvest time foods. Year in and year out one front runner always seems to take the lead during this season: pumpkin. Pumpkin indeed! Alas the time has come for pumpkin everything, and rightfully so! Pumpkin is incredibly versatile and when trying to come up with the perfect fall breakfast delight I came up with these easy gluten free pumpkin waffles. This recipe is simple to prepare, low carb and paleo friendly. The recipe calls for a combination of a few unique ingredients including cashew flour and cassava flour which when combined with all the other ingredients yields an absurdly moist and extremely delicious waffles. Cashew flour is a wonderful alternative to all purpose flour which is sweeter and more tender than almond flour. Xylitol (aka Birch Sugar) is also used in this recipe as a low glycemic alternative to sugar. This recipe works well with using conventional sugar instead of xylitol and all purpose flour in place of both cashew flour and cassava flour if you prefer. Cashew flour, xylitol and cassava flour can all be found on Amazon.
