This recipe came out perfectly with some minor changes--I do not use Splenda and didn't see that it was a Splenda-centric recipe so when I got to adding the sweetener part, I substituted 1/4 c. light brown sugar. I also left out the molasses altogether because I didn't want it to be overly sweet. I also doubled the recipe for our family's needs. The waffles turned out very fluffy, with just the right amount of pumpkin and spice flavor.

Too many ingredients and steps. Not enough pumpkin flavor. Wouldn't make it again.

Wow! If you love pumpkin, you're gonna love this breakfast treat! What a great way to spruce up regular 'ol waffles with a nice touch of autumn flavors. I used a heaping teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice vs. cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. I also added a generous helping of vanilla to the batter. Next time I might add walnuts or mini chocolate chips. These were oh so good topped with maple syrup and a dollup of whipped cream dusted with a little pumpkin pie spice - YUM!!!

Absolutely delicious! I normally like a lighter, crispier waffle, but these were so flavorful it more than made up for the fact that it never got crisp no matter how long I cooked it. Only change I made was to use real sugar. Barring a health reason, if you're just watching calories, I'm not sure why you wouldn't use real sugar...2T is only 96 calories, or 16 calories per waffle. I'll leave the sugar in and skip the butter and syrup on top...these are so yummy they don't even need any topping! Thanks for the recipe!

These are delicious waffles. They do need a hair more spice though. I upped the cinnamon to 1 heaping tsp, nutmeg to 1/2tsp and added about a 1/4tsp cloves. My family gobbled these up asking for more.

We Loved these!!! I didn't have any molasses, so I just used the Maple Syrup sweetened with Splenda(R). The recipe only made 4 waffles for us (which was perfect, actually). We will Absolutely be making these again!

I really enjoyed this. It's an interesting way to mix pumpkin into a recipe. This would be great to serve during the fall season. There wasn't any aftertaste.
