Pumpkin Waffles With Oats

Fall is in the air and cooler night time temps are approaching.  This time of year brings out plenty of pumpkin recipes and I am thrilled!  Pumpkin tops the list next to lemon for one of my favorite flavors and I plan to share plenty of pumpkin recipes with you this fall.  I’m going to start with these Pumpkin Waffles With Oats because school is starting and I’ve been working on making sure the freezer is stocked with easy to grab school lunch ideas.

Sunday mornings are often pancake mornings in our house but I like to mix up the rest of the week with a variety of meals.  Recently I have acquired a waffle maker and it’s been wonderful to have frozen waffles in the freezer for these mornings.  Homemade breakfast without all the work!

As I have said I’ve been working hard on getting the freezer stocked with plenty of freezer meals that can be grabbed and packed quickly for school lunches.  A couple of sections of these pumpkin waffles with oats paired with sausage balls, syrup, and fruit will make for a great school lunch for the boys!

To Freeze & Pack Frozen Pumpkin Waffles With Oats

To freeze waffles individually I cook as normal and allow to cool completely on a wire rack so that air can circulate. Once cooled completely, I freeze in individual layers on a cookie sheet overnight or at least 6 hours.  Once the waffles are frozen solid I toss them into a well labeled Ziploc bag and can easily grab out as many as needed.  To reheat frozen waffles I microwave frozen waffles for a minute or if I need several at one time I will reheat them in a 350 degree oven for 8 – 10 minutes.  This will also help keep them crisp.

To pack for school lunches I will grab a couple of sections out in the morning before school and let them thaw slowly throughout the day.  The boys have a microwave at school so they have the option to reheat the waffles if they want or they can eat them cold.
