This pumpkin waffle recipe is the best! Made with a lighter whole wheat flour and lots of pumpkin flavor, these waffles are delicious and healthy.

Waffles are one of our all-time favorite weekend breakfasts. And in the fall and winter, we love pumpkin waffles.

Our founder, Jean, adapted this recipe over the years to make it a bit healthier with whole wheat flour and more pumpkin. And to make it easier to whip up a batch!

They are flavorful and moist, and leftovers reheat really well the next day.
