This recipe was adapted from the Ultimate Pumpkin Waffles Recipe


  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (a lighter whole wheat sold by King Arthur; if you use regular whole wheat I would try half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin (if you like your waffles drier, just use 1 cup)
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled


  1. Oil and preheat the waffle iron.
  2. Whisk brown sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl. Then whisk in remaining dry ingredients.
  3. Next, whisk together pumpkin, milk, eggs, and melted butter.
  4. Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  5. Pour the batter onto your preheated waffle iron and cook. 
  6. Serve with butter and maple syrup or whipped cream with sprinkle of cinnamon if you want to get fancy.
