A not-super-sweet pumpkin waffle recipe to get your weekend off to a good start!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 9 waffles
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree (I used canned, but homemade is even better!)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or coconut oil for strict dairy-free- personally, butter & ghee are the only dairy products I tolerate)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (clover or other honey with balanced glucose-fructose ratio is best tolerated for those with IBS/SIBO)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened hemp milk)
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot starch
  • ½ cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon non-aluminum baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Maple syrup or honey (for serving)
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, melted butter, melted honey, vanilla, and non-dairy milk. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, combine brown rice flour, arrowroot starch, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and sea salt. Stir to distribute ingredients evenly.
  3. If your waffle iron does not have a non-stick surface, use some extra butter or coconut oil to grease it thoroughly.
  4. Preheat waffle iron to medium heat.
  5. Whisk wet ingredients into dry until just combined, being careful not to over-mix (this will make batter tough because of the baking powder).
  6. When waffle iron has preheated, use a measuring cup to scoop ⅓-1/2 cup of batter into each waffle spot.
  7. If your waffle iron has an automatic timer setting, check them when the timer goes off. Otherwise, set timer for 4-5 minutes and check when timer goes off. Add an extra minute or two if they are not quite crispy.
  8. Continue making waffles until all batter is used up.
  9. Serve with warm maple syrup or honey.
