If you watch my Instagram stories, you know that rain or shine, breakfast waffles and pancakes always happen.

Besides the seasonal pumpkin waffles, when we want the classic, we go for gluten free banana pancakes, or the all season long sweet potato pancakes can never go wrong.

They are all paleo, gluten free and so easy to make. Even better? You can use the batter for both waffle and pancakes.

 

Why do I love this Healthy Pumpkin Waffle Recipe

1. It is Packed with Pumpkin Spice and Fall flavors

The waffle batter seasoned with pumpkin spice which has cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and cloves all in one. What can get better than this fall flavors?

2. It has the Best Texture

A combination of cassava flour and almond flour ensured the crispiness and the fluffiness of this waffle. Additionally, the pumpkin puree adds a nice gooey texture to the waffle as well.

Tip: After you spray the waffle iron with some coconut oil and let it sit for 10 – 15 seconds. This allows the coconut oil to heat up which will result in a nice and crispy edge on the waffles.

3. You can Make ahead for meal prep

Who doesn’t like pancakes and waffles as a weekday breakfast? Fortunately, these Pumpkin waffles can be saved in the refrigerator nicely. Try make a double batter and save them for the busy week ahead.

What a treat!

How to Store Pumpkin Waffles

After you have cooled the cooked pumpkin waffles completely, place them in an air-tight container or zip loc and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Tip: Place cooked waffles on a wired cooling rack to prevent the bottom of the waffles get soggy.

Additionally, YES, you can also freeze them!

In order to reheat and serve, you can either microwave it or pop them in the toaster!

Tip: If reheating in the microwave, start from 20 seconds and add more time. They will dry out if overheated.

Then, to replace the regular white flour, this recipe calls for cassava flour and almond flour which are both gluten free and paleo compliant flour.

Moreover, there is no refined sugar. I added a couple tablespoon of maple syrup to give it more of a fall flavor. But it taste just as good without any added sugar.

 

Pumpkin Puree in Waffles

You can either use canned pumpkin puree or fresh homemade ones. Make sure you get the pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin PIE puree. The only ingredient in the can should be pumpkin.

If you are looking for a tastier, more fresh and cheaper option, try make your own pumpkin puree. It is so easy and I swear it taste better freshly made.
