  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or plant milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, nut milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup and oil. Whisk together.
  • Pour the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients. Gentle mix the batter together. Do not over mix. Batter will be thick and this is normal.
  • Heat up your waffle iron (see above for which iron I use). If needed, put a little oil on the iron's plates to prevent sticking. Once hot, pour 1/2 cup of batter onto your hot iron.
  • Close your waffles iron and let cook. How long will depend on how hot your particular waffle iron cooks, but you will know the waffles are done when the the steam has COMPLETELY stopped coming from the waffle maker. If there is steam, your waffle is still cooking. My waffle iron cooks these in about 5-6 minutes.
  • Once each waffle finishes cooking, remove it from the iron and place on a baking sheet in a 200℉ oven to keep warm while your finish cooking the rest of the batter.
  • Enjoy warm topped with extra maple syrup, sliced banana, berries, extra syrup, whipped coconut cream, or a little nut butter.
  • Allow leftovers to completely cool before storing them in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to 4 days or in your freezer for up to a month.
