For the Waffles

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

To Serve

  • Plain yogurt
  • Maple syrup
  • Fresh fruit of choice


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the ground flax and water. Set aside to gel.

  2. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, combine pumpkin purée, almond milk, vanilla and maple syrup. Blend until completely smooth.

  3. Place all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir. Pour in the pumpkin mixture and the gelled flax and mix until a thick batter forms. 

  4. Heat your waffle iron. Once it has come to temperature, add approximately 1/2 a cup of batter and smooth it out so that it's nice and even. Cook for about 4 minutes or until the waffles are golden and come away from the iron easily. Enjoy immediately or allow to cool and pop them in the freezer to enjoy at a later date.

Recipe Notes

* Notes: I have a non-stick waffle iron, so it does not require greasing. Most waffle irons do require a thin coat of oil or butter to prevent sticking
