Corn, Teff and Pumpkin Waffles with Baked Crisp Parmesan Chicken

The waffles are light and fluffy with just a hint of spice to complement the pumpkin flavor using our whole wheat flour, and ivory teff.

Chicken and Waffles are a Southern comfort food classic, and this is our healthy twist that will keep your family begging for more! The waffles themselves are vegetarian. They are light and fluffy with just a hint of spice to complement the pumpkin flavor using our whole wheat flour, and ivory teff. Because teff is one of the smallest seeds-grains on earth, adding just a little goes a long way for adding flavor and nutrition.
