Vegan Pumpkin Waffles! (with spiced apple compote)

Whether or not you had pumpkin pie yesterday, there is never a bad time for pumpkin waffles! The spices of fall combine with creamy pumpkin and a crunchy waffle bite, for a heavenly brunch food.   I cooked some chopped apples with vanilla extract, a little water, blackstrap molasses, and pumpkin pie spice on the stove until the apples became soft, for a spiced apple compote topping! Also pictured is serving simply with syrup and spiced pumpkin seeds. You could even add some cacao nibs or chocolate chips! So good!

You need:
1/2 cup pumpkin purée

1 banana, mashed

1tsp apple cider vinegar

2tbs ground flax

1.5 cup rice milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp each baking powder and soda

1/2 cup chickpea flour

1/2 cup oats

1 cup buckwheat flour
Simply mix all ingredients well in a bowl, then scoop into a hot greased waffle iron. Because of the thickness of the batter and the moist texture of the pumpkin, I let these stay in the waffle iron longer than typical waffles. When the green light would come in signifying they are ready, I checked and each time they were still doughy in the middle. So I closed it up again and let it cook until the green light came on again after a few more minutes. You can just check periodically until they are cooked to your liking!  Top with fruit, pumpkin seeds, syrup, cacao nibs, spiced apples, and enjoy!!!
