  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Add oil and pumpkin puree, whisk again until batter is thick and smooth.
  • Stir in the milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet mixture.
  • Stir gently until just moistened and combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the waffle iron and cook according to waffle iron directions until nicely golden brown.
  • Top with some toasted pecans, fresh figs, or any of your favorite fruits, and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup.


  • Store the leftover waffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They'll be good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. reheat just before serving.
  • For freezing, stack up the waffles between 2 layers of waxed paper, place in an airtight container, and freeze. You can freeze the waffles for up to 3 months.
  • Prior to eating just defrost, reheat into the toaster.
  • Use gluten-free flour or oat flour in place of wheat flour.
  • We used Maple Syrup, but you may also use honey.
  • Coconut oil preferred but other neutral-tasting oils will work.
