Pumped up Pumpkin Waffles
I truly believe that to be your best you need to feel your best. I am always looking for delicious healthy recipes to keep my family powered up. This recipe comes from my good friend Donna who has a way of creating incredibly delicious, power packed, healthy recipes. This is one of my favorites, and one I will be making for my family Christmas Morning! When she makes these, she doesn't even tell people how healthy they are and they are gone in a flash!

If I’m going to make a mess in the kitchen, I like to increase the benefits. Here I have added hemp powder and cocoa powder for a delicious power packed breakfast. Make the batch and freeze the extras. Create a sandwich by spreading almond butter topped with grape slivers and quarter for a healthy snack at book club or bunco!
¼ cup hemp protein powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 large yellow plantain or 2 yellow bananas
½ tsp salt
1 cup pureed pumpkin or pureed sweet potato
Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and then cook with a waffle iron using cooking spray.
Finish them off with your favorite waffle toppings. Picture shown is topped with coconut cream, frozen blueberries and pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
