Butternut Squash Chia Spelt Waffles

Butternut Squash Chia Spelt Waffles

As Fall sets in I load my refrigerator with Butternut squash and make its puree in big batches. It’s easy to make Butternut Squash puree and takes hardly any time. It’s as simple as to peel, chop, boil and mash. It can be frozen for use as and when needed. So my idea is to have enough butternut squash puree before Thanksgiving this year so I can just pull it out of my freezer and turn it into any recipe I want and to compliment my idea I came up this healthy Butternut Squash Chia Spelt Waffles for Thanksgiving Brunch.

To make it even more wholesome drizzle maple syrup generously, top it with your choice of fruits and nuts and some cream if desired. I enjoyed my waffles as is because the sweetness was perfect for me but my family loved them with lots of maple syrup. When I served these waffles we were immediately energized and satisfied and it was a picture perfect day when we all contributed for the grand dinner that entire day. (We decided to try out some new recipes since there are still few days left for Thanksgiving). Yashvi especially was so chirpy and cheerful all day long and helped me with stirring and whipping and baking and her giggles and laughter was all over my home.

Finally, at the end of the day we all rehearsed by enjoying the successful recipes and laughed over some failed recipes and before we went to bed we were ready with the dinner menu along with grocery list. I am going to treasure this day all my life :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!
