Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles
Here we go! Gluten free Pumpkin Waffles are on the table. Delicious! Our healthy pumpkin waffles contain pumpkin pie spice and are packed full of nutrition: vitamin A, iron, fiber, protein and low sugar. We do not add gums, or anything artificial and ugly. The batter is a bit thicker, so be prepared for that difference when spooning onto the waffle iron. If you haven’t tried the original recipe yet, click here. Our waffle recipes are destined to become hand-me-down, go-to, feel good recipes.
Use this recipe as a guide – follow your own delightful taste buds and add more or less pumpkin pie spice. Or perhaps you prefer just cinnamon or cinnamon and ground ginger? It’s up to you. Create your own waffle recipe masterpiece.
Fresh vs. Canned
We use canned, organic pumpkin that contains nothing but goodness in our waffles. Canned pumpkin provides an easy, time-saving solution for us and we are happy with our brand choice. However, ’tis the season, and you may have pumpkin just waiting to be prepped and turned into puree. Truly, nothing beats fresh from the garden or farmer’s market produce. Check out this link to Inspired Taste for a tutorial on how to make your own pumpkin puree.

Before You Dive In – Prep: Please read!
- Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup to make buttermilk. Set aside for 10 minutes. The milk needs time to curdle
- Melt and cool the butter
- Preheat the waffle iron according to manufacture instructions, and grease or spray with non-stick spray if necessary
Step 1: If you missed the prep note – combine the vinegar and milk in a small bowl or measuring cup. Set aside.
Step 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
Step 3: In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and vanilla. Add the milk+ vinegar mixture and the cooled, melted butter. Whisk all the wet ingredients together until fully combined.
Step 4: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated, and well mixed.
Step 5: Spoon batter by 1/3 cup onto the waffle iron (add more or less as needed for your equipment,) and cook each waffle to your perfection.
Step 6: Transfer waffles to a cooling rack or a warm receiving plate.
Make Ahead Time Saver: Weekday mornings are hectic at our house, so I always make extra waffles on the weekend and freeze the rest for a midweek treat. Gluten free waffles are easy to freeze and reheat, and they taste delicious. Place waffles in a freezer bag or container. They do not need to be separated with parchment. When ready to eat, warm them in a toaster or toaster oven set to low for several minutes. They store well in the freezer for up to a month.
