    Pumpkin spice waffles

    Today, I made these absolutely amazing pumpkin waffles. They are super soft and moist and what better way to get your veggies in right?! I love the warm flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon. Mmm… these pumpkin spice waffles, listening to the rain fall against the window, and a good book in hand. Now that sounds like a perfect Saturday morning to me. Am I right?

    There was a nice little waffle restaurant right on the beach, so on rainy days we would sit there, staring at the waves crashing down onto the beach while sipping on hot chocolate and devouring as many pumpkin waffles as we possibly could fit into our stomachs. Till this day, whenever it rains, I crave waffles. There’s something so comforting about them.

    How do you make waffles without a waffle maker?

    Since I don’t own a waffle iron, I simply use a little waffle mold (which is also pretty cheap) and bake the pumpkin waffles in the oven. It is fantastic. You can pretty much use any batter (even bisquick or pancake mix), pour it into the silicone waffle mold and bake. And there you have it…pumpkin waffles in literally no time at all!

    How long to cook pumpkin waffles

    I like to bake my pumpkin waffles in the waffle mold for about 8 to 10 minutes in the oven, or until the texture is fluffy and crisp. If using a regular waffle iron, these healthy pumpkin waffles should take about 3 minutes to cook through.

    How to make homemade pumpkin waffles

    These pumpkin waffles are incredibly easy to make and have great pumpkin flavor! You pretty much just mix all the ingredients together, pour the batter into the waffle mold and bake. You can use store bought pumpkin puree, but it is also so easy to make your own homemade pumpkin puree. Either way, the pumpkin waffles will be so yummy!

    1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC and spray the silicone waffle mold with non-stick cooking spray.
    2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    3. Meanwhile, whisk together the wet ingredients: pumpkin purée, buttermilk, brown sugar, eggs and coconut oil.
    4. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and whisk until just combined.
    5. Fill the waffle mold with the batter and bake the pumpkin waffles for 8-10 min (or about 3 min in a waffle iron).
    6. Top pumpkin waffles with butter and maple syrup.

    Can I freeze pumpkin waffles?

    Yes, you can freeze these pumpkin waffles! Sometimes I’ll double the batch so that I have extras to stick in the freezer. Bake according to directions and let cool completely. Once cooled, transfer pumpkin waffles to a baking sheet and lay out individually (with space in between). If you are doubling the pumpkin waffle recipe, you can add a piece of parchment paper over the first layer and then add another layer of  pumpkin waffles on top.

    Place the pan in the freezer and allow the pumpkin waffles to freeze for about 1-2 hours. Then remove from freezer and place frozen waffles in a large freezer bag. When ready to eat, stick in regular oven or toaster oven to warm back up all throughout.
