Happy Labor Day!
It was incredible out this morning. 58 degrees in the south? Yes, please! Kyle and I are headed to the park to play tennis here in a bit, and then I’ll be spending the evening out at my parent’s house. My dad is throwing some burgers on the grill, and we are going to hang out by the pool.
Before I take off for another day of tennis (literally played five days in a row) I wanted to leave you with my latest recipe, and this is one you’ll want to make over and over again! Can I get an “AMEN” for my first pumpkin recipe of the year? I have another coming this week 🙂 I put all the fall mums in the front yard yesterday evening, but I’ll wait until I get back from California to add the pumpkins 🙂
Yesterday morning, Kyle and I made waffles for breakfast. He made a peanut butter chocolate protein waffle and I made a cinnamon raisin apple pumpkin waffle. He ended up liking mine better than his 🙂 This waffle was so fluffy, crispy on the edges, and overflowing with flavors. I don’t think you can ever have too much pumpkin spice in a recipe, so I overloaded the spices on this one!
If you’re interested in Kyle’s waffle recipe, I added his above!

This waffle maker is my favorite and cheapest investment. I bought it on Amazon for $17.00! Here is the link if you’re interested!

I had mine with light syrup and cinnamon sprinkled on top!
Another thing I love is my syrup boat. I bought it at a thrift store for 49 cents. I also bought those plates for $1 a piece! They are my absolute favorite. And the blue mugs? 25 cents.
I have a feeling I’ll be making a lot of waffles this winter! I have a matcha waffle on my list to try next.
This recipe is gluten free, nut free, dairy free, vegetarian, and delicious.
