Fall is here, and it’s now officially acceptable to start putting pumpkin puree into everything, hurray! Pumpkin puree is such a great addition to your meals because it is an easy and healthy way to add a ton of flavor and moisture to your food. We especially love it in waffles, overnight oats, and of course, smoothies!
Just one cup of pumpkin puree delivers 7g of fiber, which is 28% of the recommended daily value. Not to mention, pumpkin is loaded with Vitamin A with 763% of your daily value in a single cup. Pumpkin also contains Vitamin C, Calcium and Irons with only 83 calories per cup.
We are so smitten with pumpkin that we’ll be sharing a few pumpkin-packed recipes all Fall long. And, we’re kicking off with these delicious Pumpkin Spice Protein Waffles from @somuchyumblog of the blog So Much Yum Blog. Here’s how to do it:
