How to Make Keto Pumpkin Waffles

  1. Start the batter - Combine your eggs, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Finish the batter - Combine the rest of your ingredients in the bowl and mix them well again.
  3. Cook - Heat your waffle iron and use about a quarter of the batter for one waffle. Follow your waffle iron’s cook time indicator. It should be about two minutes.
  4. Serve - Top your waffles and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • Storage - Store the pumpkin waffles in a container covered with plastic, in the pantry, for up to 3 days. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Store in the freezer separate by wax paper, in an airtight container, up to 2 months. 
  • Reheating - Reheat in the microwave, covered. If waffles are a little dry, heat your healthy pumpkin waffles covered with a damp paper towel. 
  • Boost the pumpkin flavor - Add more pumpkin puree or more pumpkin spice if you really want to boost the pumpkin flavor. You can also add some pumpkin extract if you prefer as well. If you decide to add more pumpkin puree to this recipe for pumpkin waffles, adjust by adding a bit more flour as well.
  • Toppings - If you’re drawing a blank for some keto toppings, I like to use a powdered sugar substitute. You can also top it with keto-friendly syrup, fresh berries, etc.
  • Add chocolate chips - If you want to spruce up your pumpkin waffles even more, add some keto-friendly dark chocolate chips. About ¼ cup should do for this recipe.
  • Make them thinner - If you prefer a thinner waffle that isn’t as fluffy, thin out the batter a bit. You can do this by adding a bit more almond milk or some water. Only add a little bit at a time and fully mix it in before adding more. They may be a bit crisper if made thinner, so keep this in mind.

Common Questions About Keto Pumpkin Waffles

Why Do They Call Waffles "Waffles"?

The word “waffle” actually comes from the Dutch word “wafel.” It essentially means “weave.” A traditional waffle has that distinct pattern we all know and love.

It clearly resembles a weaving pattern, which would make its origin name make plenty of sense. In this day and age, the pattern of waffles and even pancakes can vary widely.

With access to so many different waffle irons and pancake pans, the sky's the limit for shapes and sizes. 

Is Pancake and Waffle Mix the Same?

Waffles and pancakes contain mostly the same ingredients. The difference is that waffles have more sugar for caramelization and pancakes are made with more fat content to get a crispy edge when cooked.

Pancake batter is also, usually, a little bit thinner and not as dense as waffle batter. Pancakes and waffles also differ in the way they’re cooked. Waffles are a lot crispier while pancakes are a lot softer.
