Pumpkin Spice Waffles are an amazing breakfast treat all year long! Golden brown, crispy, and simple to make- you're gonna love 'em!

Do you enjoy waffles? We sure do in our home! Every few weeks, my husband will ask if we can have waffles for breakfast, and out comes our trusty ol’ waffle iron. We don’t have waffles too often (gotta keep our girlish figures, right? *wink wink*), but when we do, we love ’em!

The easy recipe I want to share today is for pumpkin spice waffles. With the inclusion of canned pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice mix in the batter, there is a really nice Fall-inspired flavor to these yummy breakfast treats! They’re crispy, golden brown, and delicious! Remember- even though they are “Fall-inspired” doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this hearty breakfast year-round! Here’s how to make them:

Make The Batter

Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin puree, melted butter and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Continue to whisk these wet ingredients until the mixture is smooth.

In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk (or stir) together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. NOTE: I make my own pumpkin pie spice mix… you can find my recipe here.

Pour the wet batter into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir the batter only until all ingredients are mixed and moistened. It’s okay if the batter is still a little bit lumpy… just don’t overmix.

Cook The Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Preheat your waffle iron, brushing with oil, if required by manufacturer instructions. If using a standard sized waffle iron, you will use about 1/2 cup of batter for each waffle (for a yield of 4-6 waffles). If using a Belgian waffle maker (as shown below), you will use about 1 cup of batter per waffle (for a yield of 3 waffles). 

Cook the waffles according to manufacturer instructions and timing recommendations. Depending on the type waffle make you use, they will typically cook for somewhere between 3-5 minutes. When done, the pumpkin spice waffles should be crispy and lightly browned. Remove waffle, and serve immediately.

Note: The batter for this recipe is fairly thick, so do not use with a “pour into the top” type of waffle iron (some newer models). The first time I made these I tried a new type of waffle iron I had been given, where you pour the batter through a type of funnel into the top without opening the waffle iron. Complete failure, cause the batter was too thick for the funnel loader. My bad.

To serve, top the hot pumpkin spice waffles with a bit of butter, and drizzle with maple syrup. Serve hot, and enjoy!

We really enjoy the warm Fall-inspired flavors of these pumpkin spice waffles. I hope you will too! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you come back again soon. Have a GREAT day!
