Homemade Pumpkin Waffles

Welcome to pumpkin season! I am taking full advantage of the fall season and cooking up a few of my pumpkin favorites. Last year, I made these pumpkin rolls with caramel frosting as a sweet breakfast treat. But this year, I wanted to try my hand at something a little more from scratch. I always like to share quick and easy recipes with you, but I thought that since this was a simple recipe, it would be fun to kick off the pumpkin season with homemade pumpkin waffles.

It’s no secret that my love for peanut butter runs pretty deep. I eat it at least once a day and I am always look for excuses to eat more. Peanut butter power bars were always my go-to snack while playing college tennis. Now, they are my favorite pre- and post-workout snack. Last weekend, my mom and I decided to remake the power bar recipe from college and switch up the ingredients. Since we lost the original recipe, it was a good excuse to create our own.

Carrot Cake Granola

Carrot Cake Granola Recipe

I had wanted to come up with a granola that would work well with vanilla yogurt and a granola that would not require incorporating fruit on top. After some brainstorming, I came up with this carrot cake granola that is not only delicious, but much healthier than the actual cake itself. And, as far as taste goes, it’s pretty close match to real carrot cake, too! Check out this easy, homemade granola recipe below.
