Lavender Pumpkin Chia Seed Waffles

I love recipes that have hidden health benefits. Waffles are traditionally laden with butter, sugar, and are considered a gluttonous treat. However, these wonderful little waffles actually have very little butter, and are loaded with nutrients from the pumpkin and chia seeds. They have a delicious fall spice to them and will leave you coming back for more. 

4 tbs butter, melted
2 eggs
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin
1 cup water
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup chia seeds
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp lavender
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp lavender salt

Mix together your wet ingredients, slowly incorporate your dry ingredients. Cook on hot waffle iron. Makes a large batch, but extra waffles may be frozen and reheated in the toaster for a quick and easy thoughtless breakfast.
