I’m positive y’all know about my obsession with Pumpkin Spice ANYTHING! (Remind me to tell y’all a story about my latest Starbucks trip involving a bottle of PSL syrup…)
Well, I sadly infected my kids with the obsession as well (is it REALLY sad?).
Smalls has been begging me to make him something with pumpkin in it. Seriously though! I don’t know where this kid gets it from. Who loves pumpkin THAT much… (hiding PSL for your reading eyes)
Being that school is back in session and there’s pumpkin everything, why wouldn’t I have a pumpkin waffle recipe? Even better, a PALEO one? I love me some waffles too!
My kiddos devour waffles and I try to make them in large batches so I can freeze them later to have them on hand when we are in a hurry. #MOMWIN #BYEBYEPROCRASTINATION
Scroll down to get this seasonal recipe that your whole entire family will love, even the picky eaters!
Paleo Pumpkin Waffles
Makes: 4 large waffles
- ¼ cup of fresh or canned Pumpkin Puree
- 2 ripe Bananas
- 5 eggs
- ¼ cup Coconut Flour
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tablespoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
- ½ cup of Coconut Milk
1. Heat the waffle iron.
2. In a blender or food processor combine all the ingredients and blend on high till well blended.
3. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes to thicken.
4. Liberally grease your waffle iron with coconut oil. Coconut flour tends to stick, so do not omit this step.
5. Pour about ¼ to ½ cup of batter, depending on the size of your waffle iron.
6. Cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions. Coconut Flour takes time to cook. So it will take about 1 minute longer than your regular waffle recipe.
Serve it warm with maple syrup and whipped coconut cream and/or your favorite fruits and/or nuts and/or chocolate chips.
- Coconut flour batter gets thicker with time. While you are cooking your waffle, if it gets too thick add about 2 tablespoons of coconut milk and it will be fine.
- Chocolate chips are a great addition to the waffle batter, or you can add any nuts of choice.
- The bananas provide a subtle sweetness to the waffles. And it deepens on the ripeness of the bananas. If the bananas aren’t too sweet, add about 2 tablespoons to a ¼ cup of maple syrup to the waffle batter.
