Melted butter or non-stick spray for waffle iron, as per manufacturer’s instructions
Preheat and grease your waffle iron
In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry mix and spices.
Add the water and oil to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Next mix in the pumpkin puree and molasses until just combined- your batter may be a little lumpy.
Following the instructions on your waffle iron, scoop the recommended amount of batter into your iron and close lid to bake the waffles. I used approximately 1/2 cup of batter per waffle. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions (my waffle iron has a light that clicks on when waffles are cooked).
TIP: while it may seem obvious, don't forget to spray your waffle iron with oil before each new waffle, otherwise you'll have a big mess to clean up!
