Pumpkin Spice Waffles

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
15 ounces pure pumpkin puree
2 eggs (separated)
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tsp McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice Extract*
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat waffle iron according to directions.

In a large bowl, whisk the coconut oil (in liquid form), both kinds of sugar, pumpkin puree, egg yolks, and milk together until smooth. Add the pumpkin pie spice extract and vanilla extract and stir.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Stir the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, just until combined.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk egg whites until they are white and fluffy with soft peaks. Carefully and gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

Scoop about 3/4 cup of batter onto the waffle iron (batter will be thick) and cook for about 3 minutes. Top with butter, syrup, whipped cream, and/or cinnamon if desired. Makes

*If you can’t find Pumpkin Pie Spice Extract, you can use the following substitution:
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
