Sharing is caring!

Are you in the mood for a fall breakfast?  Try these Pumpkin Waffles!  They are incredibly light and fluffy inside while delivering the classic crunchiness on the outside.  What makes these even more delicious is that they are made with real pumpkin and warm spices.

No need to wait for the weekend to make these Pumpkin Waffles for breakfast when they are so simple, you can whip them up so easily any morning!

I have been making these Pumpkin Waffles for years – it’s a fall tradition in my family -but never had the time to take photos until recently.

There’s just enough warm spice and pure pumpkin added to give them their golden color and flavor any pumpkin lover will adore.

Make These Pumpkin Waffles! 

FIRST, make the batter.  It’s a simple batter to whisk and only takes 5 minutes to prepare and it’s ready to go!  Meanwhile, turn on your waffle maker.

NEXT, ladle a scoop of the pumpkin batter into your waffle makerclose the lid and it does all the work for you.



  • Try not to add too much batter or you will have it spilling out of the waffle maker, making a mess.  A ladle size scoop should do the trick and give you the right amount of batter for your waffle maker.

  • Keeping in mind, you can add more or less batter to the waffle maker depending on the size of the waffle you prefer.

  • Use your favorite Gluten-Free flour and make them gluten-free!

For me, making waffles are easier than making pancakes, and the clean up is faster too.

The texture of our Pumpkin Waffles is incredibly light and fluffy, while the flavor of pumpkin is very mild, not too sweet and just enough pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to make them addicting.

Trust me – they are wicked good!

Pumpkin Waffles are perfect to make and freeze any extras for another day. 

Before freezing, it’s always best to allow them to cool completely before storing them in zip-lock bags.

You can easily pop them into the toaster to help make breakfast a snap!  Just serve them with your favorite syrup and toppings, such as chopped pecans, walnuts, butter, or powdered sugar.

Nothing fancy but a delightful treat for breakfast!

Best of all, if you have little ones, these pumpkin waffles can be pulled apart into smaller triangles, and they can dunk them into maple syrup ( place a sidecar, small glass or cup with syrup) and make breakfast fun for the kids.

Even on the busiest mornings, these waffles will turn out great!



So let’s go!

Pull out all the stops and serve something special this weekend and make it a “fall memorable” breakfast!




Some Great TIPS! 

I used Libby’s brand of Pure Pumpkin to whip up a batch in a hurry. 

If you prefer the homemade pumpkin puree for this recipe you can find our recipe for How to Make Fresh Pumpkin Puree Also, you can freeze any remaining pure pumpkin, and use it for other pumpkin recipes.

These Pumpkin Waffles are incredibly light and fluffy inside while delivering the classic crunchiness on the outside. What makes these even more delicious is that they are made with real pumpkin. Super easy and delicious!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1 egg

Option toppings for serving:

  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup
  • butter
  • whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In one bowl, stir all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Make a well in the center and add all the liquid ingredients, milk, pumpkin, oil and egg.
  3. Gently whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Do not over mix. The batter will be thick.
  4. Lightly spray your waffle maker with cooking spray and heat on medium to high setting.
  5. Follow the directions of your waffle maker. Mine beeps when the waffle maker is ready to use.
  6. Ladle the batter into the center of the waffle maker, close the lid and wait until it rings for your attention. I prefer to make small size to medium size waffles to stack them.
  7. Remove and serve with your favorite toppings.
  8. Yields: about 6 to 8 medium-size waffles, or 4 large ones


It's a good idea to test your waffle maker's heat settings with a small amount of batter for the test. Every waffle maker works differently. So heat the waffle maker on high heat, then lower it to medium heat when the batter goes in, and wait for it to beep. Then taste the waffle and check the texture, and if needed - adjust the heat settings to your liking.


If you love making Waffles, then try our Light & Fluffy Lemon Blueberry Waffles, and our Strawberry Chocolate Chip Waffles.  They are just as easy and delicious!
