Crispy Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Waffles! Good for breakfast or dessert or breakfast for dinner. We tend to serve our waffles at breakfast (how normative, I know). Anyway, these waffles are nice and light with a crispy exterior. The flavour is subtle but the addition of coffee and coffee extract gives these waffles a little different edge. 

Because these waffles are so light, I suggest serving them with some tofu bacon, fruit, and a glass of almond milk (or something like that) so you don't end up light-headed an hour later ;)

Pumpkin Spice Waffles 
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp flaxseed meal + 2.5 Tbsp water)

1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup evaporated cane juice
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp coffee extract, or vanilla1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup very strong brewed coffee
1 1/2 cups AP flour

DirectionsMix flax with water in a bowl and let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add off the ingredients up until the milk and whisk together. Add in the milk and coffee and give it another stir. Lastly, mix in the flour until just combined.
Spritz your waffle iron, when preheated, with oil. Add about a quarter cup of batter to the iron but actually add whatever amount you're comfortable with, hehe. Wait until done and serve with your favourite waffle toppings. We like the traditional maple syrup or sometimes we like to double up on pumpkin and spread some of TJ's Pumpkin Butter on the waffles.


  1. I wish I had waffle maker..I wonder why I still don't have it..because I just love waffles! :) I can imagine they smelled so good with those spices.

    1. When we first got our waffle maker we had waffles every weekend for a year. It's one of our most loved and used kitchen appliances!
