Recipe: Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles


Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles

I’ve been on a waffle kick lately.

Recently I posted the PB & J waffles, also have buttermilk waffles, Double chocolate chip waffles, and salted caramel waffles.

Waffles allows one to get creative. Why do the basic butter and maple syrup when you can expand the layers of flavors and combos?

I’ve also decided to do more recipes using Bob Mill’s All Purpose GF Flour and Thomas Keller’s Cup4Cup GF Flour. Not everyone has jars of all the different gluten free flours available. (Teff flour, Potato Starch, Cornstarch, Potato Flour, Amaranth Flour, Millet Flour, Sorghum Flour, White Rice Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Quinoa Flour, Bean Flour.)

That can be a lot of jars of flours to store, also some of these flours are hard for people to get a hold of. So, I’m going to do some playing around with recipes and post recipes over the next month using Bob Mill’s and Cup4Cup.

I’m also going to be doing a major kitchen renovation this summer. This means I will be without a kitchen for at least 6 weeks. Not looking forward to not having a kitchen but I am really excited for the end result. I figure I’ll do a lot of baking until then, so you’ll be getting cookies, cakes and brownie recipes.

Any requests?

I really enjoyed these pumpkin waffles, the additions of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon reminded me of fall and pumpkin pies.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles


1 1/2 cup buttermilk

1 cup pumpkin puree

3 eggs separated (yolks/whites)

2 Tbsp canola oil

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups Bob Mills GF Flour

4 Tbsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt



  • In a small bowl, whip egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks are formed.
  • In a larger bowl, combine buttermilk, pumpkin, egg yolks, oil and vanilla. Beat well with a whisk.
  • Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt in a small bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Add dry ingredients to buttermilk mixture and whisk until combined and smooth.
  • Fold in egg whites.
  • Spoon batter onto hot waffle pan.

* This made 6 round waffles.

I served the pumpkin waffles with maple butter and nutmeg whipping cream, here are those instructions.

Maple Butter

 1/2 cup softened butter

3 Tbsp maple syrup

  •  In a small bowl, whip both ingredients together with a handheld mixer. Once smooth: place butter in a bowl and either freeze or refrigerator until ready to use. Use a small ice cream scoop to place on cooked waffles.


Nutmeg Whipping Cream


1 cup whipping cream

1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

2 tsp sugar


  • In a small bowl, whip up whipping cream until soft peaks are formed. Slowly add sugar and nutmeg.
  • Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

  1. those walffels look awesome….where does a person purchase that flour from , cup4cup and bob mill gf flour , i live in kelowna bc thank-you

  2. Save On food in Terrace BC carries it..if they don’t have it try your local heath food store. If you have no gluten sensitivities you can use regular flour 🙂

  3. I need WHEAT FREE recipes not Gluten free. I know there is a difference….or is all wheat free also gluten free?????????

  4. I just read Wheatbelly… All wheat has gluten so yes all wheat free is also gluten free, I want wheat free recipes also, if you’re like me you do not have allergy to gluten but do not want to eat all other carb heavy substitutes. Read the book… Very informative

  5. Thanks for the feedback. I have ordered the Wheatbelly book. Can’t wait for it’s arrival. I don’t care for the heavy gluten free bread. Aside from making my own, I live alone, do you have any suggestions as far as a more tasty bread.

  6. I to would like some recipes without Wheat Flour, Rice, Soy, Corn Starch etc. or if anyone know a www site to send me thanks

  7. For those of you looking for wheat free you may want to look at paleo recipes for bread, pancakes and other carb items. The paleo diet utilizes a almond flour which is ground up almonds and coconut flour. These 2 items are both higher in protein .
