How To:Pumpkin Spice Waffels

Big sweaters, cozy socks and lots of coffee breaks.
What’s not to love about fall?
Personally, the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite drink of the season. Two of my favorite things for breakfast and are coffee and waffles. This fall, you can treat yourself to the perfect fall breakfast, Pumpkin Spice Waffles.

The recipe can also be made vegan and/or gluten-free, and it only requires 10 ingredients:


1 egg (or egg substitute)

1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp coconut or canola oil

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup milk (or milk substitute)

1/3 cup very strong brewed coffee
1 1/4 cups spelt or whole-wheat pastry flour                            

  1. First, add your egg, pumpkin puree, oil, brown sugar, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice to a bowl and whisk. Then, add almond milk and coffee and stir once more.

  2. Add flour and stir until just combined. Let batter rest for 5 minutes while preheating your waffle iron.

  3. Once preheated, generously spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and spoon about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the center of the iron and cook according to your machine’s instructions. I like to set mine to the darkest setting so it gets extra crispy.

  4. Once done, remove and place on cooling rack. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!
