There is nothing like a warm pumpkin spice waffle topped with melted butter and maple syrup for breakfast. If you like soft, cake-like waffles, this recipe if for you.
This is a partnered conversation
Fall is in the air (although it’s 94 degrees today) and I knew that I had to break out the pumpkin and the pumpkin spice.
I was shopping at my local Grocery Outlet after receiving the Wow Alerts that coconut flour was on sale. I grabbed a couple of bags and while wandering the isles, The Little screamed with happiness when he saw this Spiderman costume for $15.
He wore it for 4 days straight. I wish I was joking.
After some major bargaining, I got him to store it in a special place so it would stay in one piece for Halloween. The variety of goods they carry is one of the reasons I LOVE Grocery Outlet. I never know if I’m going to find organic coconut oil or my kiddo’s Halloween costume.
Anyhow, back to the pumpkin spice waffles. We’re off of nuts and starches right now and I had a hankering for a fun waffle recipe, so voila! this recipe was born.
It is crazy good and I highly suggest you double the recipe. It’s also Kid Spiderman approved 🙂
- These waffles are more cake-like and you will have to flip them out of your waffle iron.
Pumpkin Spice Waffles
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted and at room temperature.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat you waffle iron.
- In your blender add all your ingredients and pulse until completely mixed.
- Pour 1/2 cup on your waffle maker and cook until completely done. This waffles are very soft when they are done. I had to turn my waffle iron upside down to get them to drop out.
- Repeat until all the batter is gone.

Hi.. have you tried with banana instead of pumpkin puree by any chance ? Or do you think it would work.? Same ratio ?
I havne’t hun. I think it would work and I would start with the same ratio.
I would love to eat those with Spiderman, how cute!
Finally a nut free pumpkin waffle!!!! YEA! Thank you, Kelly! 😀
Yeah! Enjoy Amy! I’m off of nuts so expect more coconut flour recipes 🙂
I agree with you about the nuts too much use of almond meal. need more variety. thank you this one will try
I’m off eggs right now and am looking for a substitute. Can I substitute unsweetened apple sauce? If so, any thoughts on ratio?
I would do gelatin egg. This recipe is very soft and applesauce will not bind it correctly.
Add 1 T of flax meal… No longer will you need to turn the iron upside down!
Thanks for sharing that amazing top Claire!
These look great and I’m excited to try. I also wanted to comment and say I love Grocery Outlet. I just moved to southern Delaware County, PA (near Philly) and I found one and tried it out. This store is amazing!
Isn’t it? I seriously have a major crush on Grocery Outlet 🙂
These did NOT work for me, even as pancakes; the batter was way too thin. I used Tropical Traditions coconut flour. I know there’s a lot of variation among the brands, so I’m guessing that’s what went wrong. I probably could have done with half or less of the water!
Sorry it didn’t work hun. I’ve been using Nativa brand.
I have a can of Farmers Market Organic Pumkin Pie Mix…Can I use that instead of the Pumpkin Puree? The ingredients say “organic pumkin pie puree, organic cane sugar, organic cinnamon, organoc nutmeg, organic ginger, organic cloves, and organic allspice.”
You will probably have to skip the sugar in the recipe hun. It should work ok.
These tasted amazing!!!! So excited to find a Paleo waffle recipe I love. However, mine was super stuck to the waffle iron….like so stuck that I had scrambled waffles! My mixture was pretty thick and we sprayed the iron…. Any suggestions? Would LOVE to be able to use this again and have it in actual waffle form. Thanks!
You might try adding one more egg hun 🙂
