I’ve definitely joined the pumpkin train ever since the days started getting a little chillier, and a little gloomier. There is just something about the flavour of pumpkin that makes you bring out your cozy sweaters, and toques. Hopefully these Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles will help ease your way into the colder days- or at least just keep your belly happy.
Can we just talk about HOW is it already October and HOW is it already Thanksgiving this weekend? September just flew by! But if you are wanting a delicious and festive breakfast this weekend, these gluten free, dairy free waffles sure would be a hit at the breakfast table. They are light, fluffy, perfectly pumpkin-y, and Picky Husband Approved.
We probably won’t be having these pumpkin waffles this weekend as we are heading out of town to visit family for Thanksgiving. But Adam and I sure enjoyed them last weekend as we had a lazy Sunday morning breakfast with these waffles and lots of coffee- it was such a lovely way to start our Sunday.
What are you family Thanksgiving traditions? Our’s used to involve the big turkey, but that looks a little different these days. All I know is that whatever we have for a our dinner, it is still always followed by some delicious pumpkin dessert- because when I think Thanksgiving, I think pumpkin of course. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, maybe start your day with these gluten free pumpkin waffles and then also eat all the pumpkin you want, and more. ♥
Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles
time to make ~40minutes
- 1 1/2 cups OAT FLOUR
- 2 teaspoons BAKING POWDER
- 1 teaspoon CINNAMON
- 1 teaspoon ALL SPICE
- pinch of SEA SALT
- 2 tablespoons FLAX MEAL
- 1 EGG
- 3/4 cup PUMPKIN PUREE
- 1 cup ALMOND MILK
- 1 teaspoon VANILLA
- 2 tablespoons MAPLE SYRUP
- 1/4 cup COCONUT OIL (melted)
- Combine all the dry ingredients together. Leaving out the flax meal. Preheat oven to a low temperature of 200°F
- Melt the coconut oil over low heat.
- Combine all the wet ingredients and the flax meal together. I used a food processor but you could also just mix by hand. Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Combine the wet ingredients with the dry. Mix thoroughly. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes. At this point, begin to heat up your waffle iron.
- Spray the waffle iron with oil, or using a paper towel with coconut oil on it- rub on the waffle iron. Add 1/2 cup of the batter into the middle of the pan, and close the lid. My waffles took 8 minutes to cook, but depending on the waffle iron this could differ.
- Once each waffle is done, add it to a plate and place in the oven to keep warm. Continue to bake 1/2 cup of batter at a time.
- Enjoy waffles with maple syrup, coconut yogurt, fruit and / pecans!
