Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Transfer to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Lightly grease a waffle iron with butter or margarine. Turn it on to your desired setting (I used dark).
  • Once hot, scoop about ¾ cup of the waffle batter and spread on the waffle maker. Close and let cook for 5-6 minutes or until cooked to your liking. This will make the crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with coconut whipped cream, maple syrup, fruit and/or nut butter.


Suggested toppings: Sunflower seed butter, spiced chia applesauce, pumpkin butter, butter, maple syrup, berries, cinnamon sugar, coconut whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
I used almond milk in this recipe, but other milks will work.
