These easy Pumpkin Waffles are the perfect way to embrace fall for a sweet start to your day. Imagine these pumpkin waffles with your pumpkin spice latte, cozied up in a big sweater, after crunching on some leaves…

These Pumpkin Waffles have tasty blend of the classic pumpkin spice! You can use your favorite premixed pumpkin spice blend or use the spices suggested like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger to make your own.
These waffles are amazing paired with maple syrup, maple butter, butter, some Fried Chicken of the Woods, or Kentucky Fried Hen of the Woods!

Roast Your Own Pumpkin…
Or Use a Can?

You can use either a can of pumpkin puree or you can roast your own!

It all depends on how much time you want to spend on these vegan pumpkin waffles…
The flavor will be better, and the whole meal will be more nutritious if you make pumpkin puree fresh. Canned pumpkin is less nutritious as many nutrients degrade over time- fresh vegetables are going to be more nutrient dense. Canned pumpkin is less flavorful, less sweet, but requires no prep work.

If you do roast your own pumpkin try varieties like Sugar Pie, Kabocha, or Jarrahdale are all fantastic flavor options since they are all sweet.

How to Roast a Fresh Pumpkin for Pumpkin Puree

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Cut your Squash (or Pumpkin) of choice in half, gutting it and removing the seeds
  3. Place your cleaned pumpkin face down on a baking sheet and add some water to the sheet to prevent sticking while encouraging steam,
  4. Roast in the oven for 45-65 minutes or until soft. You can tell its cooked by poking the top center and if the skin leaves an indent it is fully cooked
  5. Scoop out the flesh from the skin and put into the blender
  6. Blend until smooth

    These are absolutely amazing! I swapped the coconut oil for avocado oil, and they turned out great anyways. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
