I tend to make paleo waffles on most weekends. I just love having special weekend breakfasts that I wouldn’t have in my normal day-to-day. One that includes fruit, bacon, eggs, waffles, and lots of maple syrup. I mean, YUUM.

I was about to make a prior recipe of mine this past weekend when “PUMPKIN WAFFLES” popped into my mind and sent me on a mission. I ended up making these game-changing Paleo Pumpkin Waffles with Pumpkin Frosting, and then I spend all morning in beautiful Fall pumpkin cinnamon waffle bliss.

I can’t get over how pumpkinly perfect they are.

They are light and fluffy and have such a nice pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor to them.

I mixed together ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to make my own version of pumpkin spice. And found that these spices really enhanced the subtle pumpkin flavor so well.

Put don’t forget the pumpkin frosting here. The frosting is a MUST.

For some reason, when you mix pumpkin puree with almond butter, maple syrup and pumpkin spices, it develops a nice whipped texture, and tastes like a raw version of pumpkin pie.

Soooo ya, when you top your paleo pumpkin waffles with paleo pumpkin frosting, magical things happen.

You are automatically in FALL mode, no matter where you live, which is kind of awesome when you are in Florida and nature is not feeling very Fall.

Plus you get to enjoy and savor healthy pumpkin deliciousness, in the form of Paleo Pumpkin Waffles with Pumpkin Frosting.

It kind of reminds me of pumpkin spice latte time. I LOVE them and savor them and the feeling they give me during this time of year… and I felt the same way eating these waffles.

Except these waffles are even more decadent.

To make these, you are going to need tapioca flour, almond flour, arrowroot flour and coconut flour. I’ve found this to result in the best paleo waffle texture.

You will also need pumpkin puree, eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, olive oil, and lots of Fall spices.

The waffle batter has the best naturally orange color, and the waffles themselves have a light orange color when they come out of the waffle maker.

This recipe made about 6 waffles in my waffle maker, but this number could be different based on the size and shape of yours.

These waffles didn’t last until noon in my house.

I hope they bring you lots of Fall joy!

Paleo Pumpkin Waffles with Pumpkin Frosting {GF}

Servings: 6 waffles
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Light and fluffy Paleo waffles flavored with pumpkin and pumpkin spice.


Pumpkin waffles ingredients:

Pumpkin frosting ingredients:

  • ¼ cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 Tbs almond butter
  • 2 Tbs maple syrup
  • a pinch of ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of ground cloves
  • a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • a pinch of ground ginger


Pumpkin Waffle Instructions:

  • Put the pumpkin puree, eggs, olive oil, unsweetened almond milk, and maple syrup into a bowl and whisk until well mixed.
  • In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp ground cloves, and baking soda together with a fork.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix with a fork until everything is blended well. Let the batter sit while you prepare your waffle maker ( the batter thickens as it sits).
  • Then, spray oil onto your waffle maker and preheat it until it is ready to be used. ( I set my waffle maker setting to 7 out of 7 heat. The waffle maker need to be really hot or the waffles will not crisp )
  • Pour the waffle batter into your waffle maker ( I used a Villaware Belgian Waffler). Cook until the waffles are golden brown in color and crisp on the outside. Repeat with the remaining batter.
    This recipe yields 6 waffle squares that are 5 inches long per side. ( Though this may be different if your waffle maker is a different shape and size). This would be good for about 4-6 people.

Pumpkin Frosting Instructions:

  • Mix all of the pumpkin frosting ingredients (pumpkin puree, almond butter, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ground ginger) together until whipped. 

Top the pumpkin waffles in the pumpkin frosting, along with other toppings of your choice.
