If there is anything I love more than the arrival of cooler weather, it’s the arrival of pumpkin-flavored dishes.  There is no better time than now to incorporate pumpkin into your dishes, and since I love waffles too it made sense for me to combine the two.  If you are like me and love all things pumpkin spiced then try this tasty, gluten- and dairy-free recipe for waffles.  If you do not own a waffle iron, this recipe can also be used to create pancakes.  It is a very simple recipe using mostly ingredients you have on hand and it has the perfect blend of pumpkin spice and sweetness to satisfy any cravings for those pumpkin flavored sweets.
