My life has taken a turn for the better since I stopped eating white flour or any grain of any kind and white sugar or any kind of refined sugar. I can’t believe that I have been on this journey for a little over a year. When I first went grain-free I was horrified. I wasn’t sure what I was going to eat or make. I went to the internet to find grain-free recipes. I didn’t find a lot of recipes that I wanted to try. This meant that I was going to have to create recipes for myself and my family. I had been writing recipes since I was in my early 20’s. This journey has been so fulfilling in so many ways. I have had so many friends who encouraged me. Thanks so much for all of the encouragement.
This recipe came about because my daughter really wanted some waffles. I had been wanting to create another pumpkin recipe. I began to think about the flavors and combinations of seasoning that would create a wonderful aroma and flavor to the palette. The spices that were necessary were cinnamon and nutmeg. I wanted to again pay homage to my Swedish heritage by adding cardamom. Then the white pepper and ginger entered my mind. These flavors will lead your taste buds on a sweet and spicy adventure.
I truly believe there is more good in the world than bad. The world needs us to have a positive perspective. Perhaps we can all take a small amount of time each and every day to find opportunities to create a better world and communities. Sometimes a small thing like a smile, a hug or a kind word can have in someone’s day. There are so many people who suffer from depression. I want each and every one to know that you are special there is no one else like you nor will there ever be.
My children said that this might should be called Pumpkin Pie Waffles. They are now my children’s favorite waffles. These waffles are light and fluffy. This recipe does not make a crispy waffle but a soft one. It is yummy and delicious. I hope you will enjoy it as much as my family.
These are sure to be a hit for Halloween breakfast, Thanksgiving Breakfast, Christmas Breakfast of any time.
