PUMPKIN AND CHOCOLATE CHIP WAFFLES RECIPE (Yields 2 large waffles)
-1 c all purpose flour
-1 tbsp flax meal (ground up flax seeds)
-1 1/4 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/4 tsp Himalayan pink sea salt or kosher salt
-3/4 c non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened soy milk)
-1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
-1/4 c + 2 tbsp 100% pure pumpkin puree
-2 tbsp vegan butter, melted (Or any subtle flavored oil of your choice)
-1 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
-Non-dairy semi-sweet chocolate chips
-Preheat your waffle iron. I turn mine up to medium-high, but all waffle irons are slightly different.
-Combine the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, mix, and set to the side.
-Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
-Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the bowl of milk and apple cider vinegar and stir until well combined.
-Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix just until combined. Do not over stir.
-Lightly spray your waffle iron with non-stick spray and pour half of the waffle batter into the waffle iron, spreading it around evenly.
-Sprinkle on top as many chocolate chips that your heart desires and then close the waffle iron and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until cooked through and lightly crispy on the outside.
-Repeat the last two steps to cook your 2nd waffle!
-Top waffles with vegan butter, maple syrup, pumpkin seeds, whipped cream, peanut butter, anything you want!

According to the legend, the Liege waffle (from the city of Liege, eastern Belgium) was invented by a cook of the Prince-Bishop of Liege in the 18 Th century. The Prince-Bishop had asked for a pastry filled with big pieces of pearl sugar. The cook then tried to bake in a waffle maker, a brioche type pastry with pearl sugar blended in the dough. During baking, the smell of the vanilla delighted the Prince and this waffle recipe joined quickly the culinary traditions in Liege and took the Belgium kingdom by storm.
The Liege waffle is a waffle usually bought and eaten warm on the street. They are usually freshly made in small shops. They are smaller, sweeter and denser than “Belgian waffles” and have a caramelized sugar coating on the outside, giving them a lightly sweet flavour. Most are served plain, but some are vanilla or cinnamon flavoured, and can be served with toppings like fruits, creams, and chocolate.
