Pumpkin Waffles – The perfect fall breakfast full of warm fall spices and pumpkin. These waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy in the center.

Waffles are the perfect breakfast all year round. It can be something like Chocolate Chip Waffles or if you are in full on fall mode and want all things pumpkin, these Pumpkin Waffles are a must try! They are loaded with those warm spices and plenty of pumpkin to make them a must for fall breakfast.

My family is always torn between waffles and pumpkin, so if yours is the same way, don’t miss these Pumpkin Pancakes!

Waffles are a great quick and easy breakfast to make. It takes 2 bowls and about 5 minutes to make the batter, and then you just need to cook them in the waffle iron. This works great for both traditional and Belgian waffles. Top with butter and maple syrup for a delicious breakfast.

Freezer Friendly

These waffles are great to have stashed in the freezer for busy mornings. Let the waffles cool completely, then arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place in the freezer for a few hours until the waffles are completely solid. Once they are frozen, place in a freezer safe plastic bag and store in the freezer for 3-4 months.

When you are ready to serve, remove one from the freezer and place in your toaster or toaster oven to cook, just like you would store bought frozen waffles.

What To Serve With Pumpkin Waffles

We like to top these waffles with maple syrup and maybe a few chopped walnuts. But there are lots of ways to make them a full meal!
