September is officially here, so things are getting all sorts of pumpkin spiced. Breakfast is no exception. Pumpkin, cinnamon, and ginger sizzling in the waffle iron with make your whole house smell like fall. Feeling cozy yet?

Don your favorite fuzzy socks, sweater and whip up a batch for those crisp weekend mornings.

Light & Crispy Waffles

Light & Crispy Waffles

My partner and I love waffles. They are so so SO tasty!

But most of the grain-free/paleo versions out there just don't have the crisp that I'm looking for OR they weigh a ton of bricks! This is where cassava flour really helps us out! This is a minimally processed starchy flour made from... you guessed it, cassava root (also called yuca)! I really like Otto's Cassava Flour (find it on Thrive Market for the best price!) and Anthony's Cassava Flour. It's clearly pricier than standard flours, but it's totally worth it for a tasty treat. Plus it's great for folks who can't do nut-based treats. 

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Okay there are about a million recipes out there for chia pudding, TBH. But here's MY take on it. The coconut milk, cinnamon and vanilla give it that horchata feel (in a totally not authentic and maybe it's just me way.). The pudding is a pretty great balance of healthy fat, protein and a kick of carbs, so it makes a deeeelightful breakfast too. Dessert for breakfast. whaaa? I know!
