Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles

Spice up your morning routine with Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles. In addition to real maple syrup, I like to top these golden waffles with Greek yogurt mixed with honey and a few toasted pecans — so delicious!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  • Real maple syrup
  • Sliced apples
  • Toasted pecans
  • Greek yogurt mixed with honey


  • Preheat a waffle iron.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin pureé, buttermilk, brown sugar, canola oil and vanilla. Whisk until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Stir the dry mixture into the pumpkin mixture just until smooth. Be careful not to over-mix the batter. It feel fluffy.
  • Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray or coat it with additional olive oil. Cook waffles according the the waffle maker’s directions.
  • Serve with maple syrup, toasted pecans, honey yogurt, sliced apples, whip cream, or whatever you desire.
