  • 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  3. Pour mix in waffle maker and bake until golden (about 6-7 minutes in the mini-waffle maker I use)!  

This recipe can make about 4-5 mini-waffles or 1 large waffle.  You can also substitute the pumpkin for mashed sweet potato or banana. Enjoy!

Chickpea Scramble 

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz. Can Chickpeas
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Chili Powder (optional – I like to spice up all my food! 🌶)
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper
  • 1/4 White Onion Diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • Drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, combine chickpeas and a little bit of the water they are in. Mash chickpeas slightly with a fork, leaving some whole. Mix in turmeric, chili pepper, salt, and pepper until evenly combined.
  2. Next, mince garlic and dice onion. Heat a pan over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. First, sauté the onions until they are soft. Then add the garlic and continue sautéing for about a minute or so until the garlic starts to brown. Be careful not to overcook garlic!
  3. When onions and garlic are done, add in mashed chickpeas and cook for about five minutes.
