Got a Fall itch that needs to be scratched? Throw some pumpkin pie spice at it! These gluten free low carb pumpkin waffles have been on REPEAT in our house since September 1st. And since these waffles are low carb (1.4g net carbs per waffle) I like to add real maple syrup (12g net carbs per Tablespoon)! See below for my special pumpkin pie spiced maple syrup recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Syrup

Nutritional BenefitsPasture Raised Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein, raise HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) and lower triglycerides, contain choline (an essential B vitamin), and contain antioxidants that target eye health. Almonds are one of the highest sources of dietary Vitamin E. They are also great sources of manganeses, magnesium, and are loaded with antioxidants! Arrowroot is a root vegetable that contains a good amount of resistant starch, which like fiber, your body cannot digest. This also means it helps you stay full longer. Arrowroot also is considered to be a prebiotic food (aka it feeds the probiotics in your gut) which help your immune system to stay regulated and healthy. Chia Seeds are loaded with antioxidants and super high in fiber! Pumpkin Puree is high in vitamin C and antioxidants which is especially great going into the Fall season.
This recipe can also be used to make pancakes. Just pour onto a hot skillet and cook about 4 min each side.
