For The Butternut Squash Waffles:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked pureed butternut squash
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
