Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Waffles

Happy Fall!  One of my favorite Fall traditions is the baking I always do--especially the pumpkin recipe baking! I remember coming home from runs with my dad as a kid and smelling my mom's hotcakes. That was the smell of comfort, of love, of home. 

I recently bought a package of cinnamon chips on a whim. My oldest two went on a run together Saturday morning, and I decided to make pumpkin waffles with the cinnamon chips while they were out, in hopes that they could come home to something delicious. The result?  All I can say is WOW.  My family LOVED these. They are bursting with rich, warm flavor even before you add butter and syrup. The only hang-up is getting full.  

If you've never bought cinnamon baking chips, now is the time to find them (they are seasonal)! Check you grocery store, or you can find them online (Amazon or The Prepared Pantry are options).

Here's the easy recipe:

Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Waffles
Makes 12 large waffles

4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tablespoon  vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
3 cups flour (I used half whole wheat)
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
13/4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups cinnamon baking chips 

1. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs, oil, and sugar together. Add pumpkin, vanilla, and spices, then beat well. 
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Alternate adding the milk and flour mix to the wet mixture, beating after each addition until it is all added and incorporated.
3. Stir in cinnamon chips.
4. Bake on greased waffle iron. Serve with your favorite toppings. We had butter, maple syrup, and some homemade apple pie filling. Mmm,mmm.
