First, pumpkin pecan waffles just got better. Obviously, you must be thinking, “no way”. Way. Besides the pumpkin spice, we topped them with sweet and spicy pecans! In addition to that, we smothered them with butter and warm maple syrup. Okay, is that better? Not only are the pecans crunchy, but the slightly spicy is an incredible combo with the sweetness of the warm maple syrup!
Besides making these pumpkin pecan waffles for a brunch, make a double batch to freeze for weekday breakfast! In addition to freezing well, these are so easy to just have the kids pop them into the toaster!
