Why I love this Gluten Free Waffle Recipe

1. It is Packed with Pumpkin Spice and Fall flavors

The waffle batter seasoned with homemade 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.

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.

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.
