Healthy Pumpkin Waffles (paleo, gluten free)

Is there anything better than waffles on a Saturday morning? Yes. Paleo Pumpkin Waffles on a Saturday morning in fall. THAT is as good as it gets. Especially when they’re the perfect combination of fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside and made of all healthy ingredients! 2020 has been a tough year and I’m beginning to think things would get a lot better if we focused more energy on waffles.

Now healthy waffles might sound sketchy, but I promise you these are the real deal. These paleo waffles are made of simple ingredients like cassava flour, eggs, and coconut oil, and they taste amazing, whether you drizzle them with maple syrup, almond butter, toasted pecans, or top with whipped coconut cream. These pumpkin waffles are the perfect recipe to have on hand as we head into the holidays (Thanksgiving breakfast anyone?)

Ingredients for Healthy Pumpkin Waffles

You’ll only need a handful of paleo ingredients to make these healthy pumpkin waffles, and most of them are pantry staples. I only used one flower (cassava) in these waffles to keep things simple and nut-free. Plus these pumpkin waffles are naturally sweetened! Here’s what you need:

  • Cassava flour: This helps give a fluffy, gluten like texture without the gluten, and it’s also a prebiotic!
  • Baking soda: for that fluff factor.
  • Coconut Milk: A dairy-free way to add moisture to the batter. You can sub almond milk or another dairy-free milk.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: I add this to my coconut milk to make a dairy-free buttermilk and to act with the baking soda for extra fluff
  • Honey: a lower inflammatory sweetener that I use in most of my recipes!
  • Cinnamon: the perfect fall ingredient!
  • Coconut oil: can also sub vegan shortening
  • Eggs: You can try a flax egg to make this vegan, but I haven’t personally tested that.
  • Canned Pumpkin: Wouldn’t be pumpkin waffles without it!

And of course, you’ll need some toppings. I’m a big fan of almond butter and maple syrup on my waffles!

How to make the best Paleo waffles

Since I’ve done the hard work of figuring out how the heck to make a good Paleo waffle the rest is pretty easy! Just mix together your wet ingredients, fold in the dry, and then cook according to your waffle irons instructions. Make sure you grease it well with coconut oil or butter to prevent sticking!

You can serve the waffles immediately (highly recommended) or let cool and then freeze for an easy grab and go breakfast that you can reheat in a toaster! Who doesn’t love a weekday waffle that’s made with healthy ingredients? Knowing I had pumpkin waffles already cooked would be a real motivator to help me get out of bed.

Enough talk now. Let’s waffle.
