Perfect Breakfast for a Chilly Fall Sunday

Do you have a favorite weekend breakfast that you like to cook? Our go-to when we have a little more time than usual are the Paleo Waffles by Civilized Caveman Cooking. It’s the simplest recipe I’ve found for a more traditional tasting paleo waffle, and they’re really great to make in batches to freeze extras for grab-and-go breakfasts.

Trader Joe's Organic PumpkinWhile walking through my local Trader Joe’s this week, I couldn’t help but notice the large end-cap display of a bunch of pumpkin items, including stacks of their canned organic pumpkin puree.

I’m not usually the type to go for pumpkin-flavored things (sorry PSL lovers), but this really caught my eye and inspired my want to try something different, something more seasonal for breakfast this weekend. I opted for PaleOMG‘s Paleo Kitchen Pumpkin Waffles and, boy, was it a success!

The recipes by PaleOMG are really easy to follow and I usually have the ingredients in my cupboards. This waffle recipe calls for pumpkin pie spice, which I actually didn’t have. This wasn’t a deal-breaker, though! I didn’t have the pre-made spice mixture, but I had all the individual spices to make the mixture. If you’re in the same position as I was, check your spice rack to make this recipe for the exact amount needed for the waffles.

The only other change I had to make was using 3 small bananas as the recipe calls for 2 large bananas. Other than this adjustment, I followed the directions as is. I try not to mess around with baking instructions too much; it’s not the same as cooking, where some improv is acceptable. Baking is more of a science, and ratios do tend to matter.

The results?

PERFECT! The waffles turned out firm, full of flavor, and just what we wanted on a chilly fall morning in Chicago!
