"I used pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon. They turned out pretty good. I like Rachel Ray's recipe better."

"I replaced the brown sugar with honey and added that to the wet ingredients along with a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I did half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. The flavor was great. I had trouble with the waffles burning, but I have had waffles with whole wheat flour burn previously so I don't think it was this recipe."

"This was my first try with homemade waffle mix, and it went wonderfully! My two-year-old daughter loved them so much that two days later I made them again, substituting applesauce for the pumpkin for a bit of a change. I know we'll be making them again!"

"These are amazing, even without the orange walnut butter.  They freeze well too, so plan to make extras."
