Whole Wheat Pumpkin Seed Waffles

Do you have a weekend staple breakfast — that recipe that everyone requests on Saturday morning? In our house it’s waffles. The resident 5-year-old is a waffle fanatic. Who could blame her?

I saw these many years ago in a little bakery in Dallas and the idea has stuck in my head since then. It wasn’t until this past weekend when we were spending time at the ranch that I remembered these little delights. My mother-in-law had taken Mia to the neighboring ranch for a visit and upon their return my 2 year-old little girl had a new word,

I ran out of blueberry puree for Mia and she is now holding my cat for ransom. Poor Athens. I dropped everything I was doing (so laundry will get done later, woo hoo I lead an exciting life these days, a lot different than the days at the magazine or being on tour with my husband in his musician days la la la….enough rambling) what was I saying, oh yeah, I dropped everything and threw this together. She’s old enough now that I mix this with yogurt or a protein. It’s good even if your baby is pass the stage
