I usually try to diversify my recipes a bit throughout the week, but clearly this week was having none of that. I was just too excited to share this recipe with you!

Let me tell you this: it is versatile. I have made these twice now with butternut squash and pumpkin, with the recipe being the same, and they have both worked out great. I also think that mashed sweet potatoes would work, but I am still in the experimenting stage.


I topped the waffles with some greek yogurt that I whipped a bit with honey and cinnamon. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of maple, including maple syrup. The only real maple product I’ve fallen in love with is maple butter, to which I have been known to devour a few tablespoons in one sitting. So decadent.

I’m sure that syrup would be fabulous on these, but I prefer eating them with a thicker, creamier topping. It’s not like it really matters anyway. They are only on my plate for a total of five seconds.



Whole Wheat Butternut Waffles

serves 3-4

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup butternut squash puree

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat waffle iron. Combine dry ingredients, then stir in squash, egg, milk and vanilla. Scoop about 1/3 cup batter onto waffle iron and cook until heated through.

Top with cinnamon cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.


Cinnamon Cream

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon honey

sprinkle of nutmeg

Mix ingredients together until smooth. Add to waffles.

    Holy Moly those look good! I have never had squash waffles but had made a similar recipe with sweet potatoes which works out very well.

    I also top all my waffles and pancakes with greek yogurt yumm!

    Those waffles look great. Love the idea to whip the greek yogurt with honey and cinnamon… I’m sure that would be delicious on LOTS of things!

    My family loves these waffles! I’ve haven’t tried the topping yet. The mix is very thick so I added some water to thin it out and it worked very well. My son doesn’t like a lot of vegetables so I love how it has Butternut Squsash puree in it. You can’t even taste it and he has no idea what is in them and he loves them!
