Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

So you may know from prior posts that I find cooking waffles incredibly intimidating.  Really.  I love them, but so often when I make them I am met with major heartbreak and disappointment.  And it seems so random.  One time I make them and they will be beautiful. The next, using the same recipe, they will stick and stick horribly. I can’t tell you how many of my waffle-making forays have ended in tears (and I rarely ever cry!). So I will often go months in between making waffles because of the sheer dread of them not working. 

But these waffles, they just worked! There was absolutely no drama.  I didn’t want to throw my waffle iron in the garbage.  No.  There were only yummy, delicious, pumpkin-y, spicy waffles at the end of it all. 

La la la! Pumpkin waffle!

Just remember to make sure you spray your waffle iron with non-stick spray every single time.

Total Time
40 min
  1. 1 cup + 1 tbsp all-purpose gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  2. 3 tbsps arrowroot powder
  3. 1 tsp baking soda
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  6. 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  7. 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  8. 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  9. 1/8 tsp salt
  10. 2 tbsps coconut palm sugar
  11. 3/4 cup + 2 tbsps vegan milk
  12. 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
  13. 2 tbsps olive oil, or other oil of choice
  14. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  1. Sift together dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix together wet ingredients.
  3. Add the wet to the dry and stir until well-combined.
  4. Let sit for ten minutes to allow the baking powder and soda to activate to give you nice, fluffy waffles.
  5. Heat waffle iron as directed. If using a cast-iron skillet, until the surface of both plates is about 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. When hot, and immediately before adding batter, spray with olive oil or a non-stick spray, or brush oil on the surface of the iron using a silicon baster.
  7. Add enough waffle batter to fill the iron and close lid.
  8. If using a cast-iron pan, cook for one minute before flipping to the other side, and repeat for a total cooking time of 4 minutes. Otherwise, follow the directions of your waffle iron’s manufacturer.
  9. Carefully open iron, remove waffle, and repeat until the batter has been used.
Vegan Sweet and Simple
