Pumpkin Spice Waffles

A few weekends ago I made waffles for breakfast and Babyface immediately started saying wobbles, wobbles.  My usual Bisquick pancakes with pecans are tasty but I knew I could make waffles healthier for Babyface.  Since I already knew he was crazy about them, I decided to make a big batch so I could freeze them.  It's less trouble to make more waffles than it is to do the whole operation again.

2 cups Arrowhead Mills multigrain pancake and waffle mix
2 eggs, beaten
2 T veggie oil
1.5c whole milk
1/2 can pumpkin
1/4t pumpkin pie spice (or more, that was all I had)
1/2 c + old fashioned oats

First, take out the George Foreman grill, put the waffle plates on and heat up grill to high.

Mix first four ingredients briefly.  Add pumpkin, spice, and oats to batter.  If the batter seems too runny, add more oatmeal. I freeze the rest of the pumpkin in an ice cube tray to use in Peanut Butter Pumpkin Oatmeal

Spray plates with cooking spray, then pour in 1/2c of batter for each waffle and cook for 4-7 minutes. Be sure to spray the plates each time so the waffles don't stick (I ruined some the first time I used the George Foreman to make waffles).  This recipe made around 16 waffles.  I froze most of them in two big freezer bags.  To reheat, I just pop them in the toaster.
