I remember being a kid and waking up on weekends to the sweet smell of breakfast. I would run downstairs and see the feast prepared that my mom called a "normal breakfast". There would be all kinds of food ready on the table, from eggs, to biscuits, to hash browns, and all kinds of other stuff, at the center of all that would be a delicious stack of waffles. Now, being someone who doesn't eat animal products, added salt, or added sugar, it's hard to imagine waking up to breakfast like that now...except I do. Every weekend, I wake up and make homemade hash browns, "egg" omelets, and of course, waffles. And these waffles are not only just as tasty as a normal waffle, but they also give you the energy you need to tackle whatever tasks you have planned for the day. You can eat these plain as they are sweet and delicious with all the fresh fruit. If you wish, put a little maple syrup, date paste, or date syrup on top of these pumpkin waffles, and you'll never want to go back to a sugary-filled waffle ever again!
