Butternut Squash Waffles 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour)
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
2 eggs 1 1/2 cups milk 1/3 cup vegetable or coconut oil 3/4 cup butternut squash puree
1 teaspoon vanilla
Peel 1 small butternut squash, remove seeds and chop into 1 inch pieces. Steam squash until soft and puree in a food processor. Alternatively use frozen butternut squash puree. In a large bowl, mix the whole wheat flour through nutmeg and set aside. In another large bowl, mix egg, milk, oil, butternut squash puree and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just moistened (a few lumps are okay). Then pour your batter out in 1/3 cup portions onto a lightly greased waffle iron heated to the medium setting. Serve warm.
