1 c fresh or canned pumpkin puree
4 tbls melted butter (1/2 stick)

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and then combine the wet ingredients in a bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Heat up the waffle maker and when it is ready give the inside a spray with a non stick vegetable spray and add a couple spoonfulls of the batter and bake. There are different size waffle makers so add the proper amount of batter for your individual waffle maker and bake according to the manufacturers instructions.
Dry toast about 2 c of chopped pecans on a pan over medium high heat in a sauce pan just until they are heated through (you will start to smell the nuts heating up) and then sprinkle about a tsp of cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and add about 4 tsp of butter. Cook until butter is melted stirring constantly and you are finished.
Top finished waffles with the spiced pecans and maple syrup and serve – they are sooo good!!!
