Pumpkin Waffles are packed with spices and taste like fall for breakfast! If you have never made pumpkin waffles before, they’re not hard at all.
I love Daylight Savings in the fall. I’m not a morning person anyway, so it gives me an extra hour to get going and get my happy on for the rest of the day. I can’t tell you how many bus stop mishaps I’ve had.
I’ve showed up at my son’s bus stop with my workout shirt on backwards or inside out. Then there was the time I showed up with a partial face mask on I had put on the night before. Awesome.
Breakfasts consisting of more than just cereal at our house are rare. We’re usually rushing around getting dressed and my kids aren’t huge breakfast eaters anyway.
But Sunday, because of daylight savings time, we had a leisure morning before church with extra time to make a nice hot breakfast. And of course, they didn’t get the memo about DST and were up at their normal early time.

These were so good! Perfect for our cold morning. My boys loved them.
I didn’t have enough eggs and I used peanut butter and a banana as an egg substitute!! Do not try these substitutes at home kiddos!! I ruined the batter and I am so upset about it! It is a yucky rainy morning and I thought this recipe would be a perfect start to spend a day inside! However, I will not be defeated and will make them again following the recipe haha!!
Sorry it didn’t work for you!
Umm…3/4 cup of butter (6T) or 1 1/2 cup butter (12T)?
My mistake! My brain is fried! Sorry.
So is it 3/4 c or 1 1/2 c?
3/4 cup butter is 12 tablespoons of butter so 3/4 cup.
Thank you “Girl Who Ate Everything” for the great recipe! I was searching for some new pumpkin recipes to try and found yours. I featured it, along with some other pumpkin recipes (http://mylifeasrobinswife.com/2012/11/11/the-perfect-parade-of-pumpkin-possibilities/) on my blog yesterday. I can’t wait to try it!
Blessings! Diane from My Life as Robin’s Wife.
I haven’t done any pumpkin waffles ever since, that is why I would like to try it and I think it is better that those ready-to-do mixture that you can buy in the store. Thanks
May you satisfy compose even more blog site entrances on this subject, its a request, since after reviewing your blog site I am highly thinking about knowing many more.
It looks very delicious, my children will love it I am sure with that. I am not really good in cooking but when I saw your site and tried some of your recipes I was amaze and I’m having fun all the time.
I made these for my family this last fall and we loved them! I will be making these often! Thanks for the great recipe!
No you are right. The ones pictured were my sons and he wanted regular syrup on them. Sorry for the confusion.
Delicious waffles. My syrup was white, however, not dark like yours. Did you use the dark Karo syrup?
Waffle batter tends to be thicker than pancake batter so I’m not sure if it will transfer. I’ve honestly only made waffles with it but I think it would work!
This looks delish. I love pumpkin anything – just about. I don’t have a waffle maker. can you make pancakes with the same recipe?
I need to have these immediately!
We don’t do daylight savings in AZ but I would definitely love these pancakes 🙂
Oh, these sound SO good! My kids prefer cereal for breakfast on school mornings, but Saturdays I always make something more – we will be trying these this weekend! We love all things pumpkin this time of year – my daughter’s birthday was Monday and she requested pumpkin pie instead of cake 😉 Thanks for all of the awesome recipes you share – we’ve loved all the ones we’ve tried so far!
The waffles look perfect!
Yes, just use the pure canned pumpkin not the pumpkin pie filling mix.
These are such a classic fall breakfast. They look so tasty!
We make an easy apple cider syrup that goes great with these also. You know it’s a hit when everyone is picking at the leftover waffles and syrup that is left.
Yum! This recipe sounds delicious 🙂 I LOVE pumpkin!!
Sweet! Thanks for another great recipe!
I a, loving all of your pumpkin recipes. These look incredible.
Yum! Perfect for fall and pretty much any weekend breakfast.
Those might be on our agenda this weekend. Yum!
My question is you don’t say what size of pumpkin in the can…and I’m assuming it’s the pumpking puree and not the pie filling kind?
These kinda make me want to lick my computer… wow, I would pay for a huge plate of them right now. Your photos turned out perfect!!! Thanks for sharing. Jacquline from http://www.seeminglygreek.com
I think these would freeze great. I know my friend Barb, who gave me the recipe, freezes them all the time so she can have them on hand when she wants.
I LOVE anything pumpkin and spice. Do you think you could make these ahead and freeze them to reheat later? I’ve got 11 for Xmas morning and can’t see me spending the time making waffles, but my daughter got me a waffle maker last year for Xmas and I know she’d be pleased to see that I’d used it!
Will the kids ever get the memo? I sure hope so. Our sunday morning felt like it lasted an entire day…at least I have something to make this coming Sunday! Look so good!
These look amazing! Waffles are my favorite breakfast food, and with pumpkin?!?! YUM!
Yum, I love waffles
Looks great! I’ve only cooked waffles once, but were a little tough… These seem fluffy waffles, right?
Just the site of these makes me want to go back to bed so I can wake up and start my day right! Can’t wait to try these!
