I am so happy that fall has arrived. There are so many things I love about the fall. I love cooler weather, the excitement of the approaching holidays, fall running, football, pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie (well really anything with pumpkin). Smile

This recipe is one that I will be making a lot of this fall! Oh my goodness, these are AMAZING! These literally taste just like a slice of pumpkin pie, but in a waffle. These could be eaten for breakfast, dessert, (or dinner in my case).

I tried a substitution that I’ve never tried before. Instead of using oil, I used plain Greek yogurt. I was so surprised at how you couldn’t tell that oil was not used. In fact, I think it made the waffles more moist!

In the past, I have used unsweetened applesauce instead of oil, but I feel as though sometimes it will give the recipe a “fat free” taste. The substitution of yogurt instead of oil doesn’t change the flavor or texture at all…I promise!!! I will forever use yogurt instead of oil when I’m baking.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make about 5 gigantic waffles (depending on the size of your waffle maker):
