Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Walnuts

Ingredients

1 ½ cups hot water
8 Bigelow® Pumpkin Spice Tea Bags
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, plus more for brushing
½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped (optional)
Electric waffle maker (an 8 inch round waffle maker was used for this recipe)

Preparation

1
Steep tea bags in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Remove bags, being sure to squeeze thoroughly. Set tea aside to cool.
2
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add cooled tea, beaten eggs, and oil. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the walnuts (if desired).
3
Preheat the waffle maker. When hot, lightly brush the surfaces with oil, to prevent sticking. Place about 2/3 cup of batter onto the hot waffle maker. Close top and cook for approximately 2 minutes (most waffle makers have an indicator light which will let you know when the waffle is ready), or until waffle is cooked through and surfaces are crisp. Remove to a platter.
4
Repeat with remaining batter.
5
Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
