Whole Wheat Butternut Waffles with Cinnamon Cream.
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.

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!
