Around these parts, Sundays are reserved for “special” breakfasts like French toast, pancakes, or waffles – and waffles are the hands down favorite in our household. Sunday could come seven days a week and I’d still wake up each morning craving crispy, chewy waffles generously coated in nut butter, slices of banana, and cacao nibs.

Pumpkin, Apple, and Pecan Pie Waffles [Vegan, Gluten-Free]






  • 2 cups gluten-free flour mix
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered stevia (or your favorite sweetener, to taste)
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp. maple extract
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 sweet apple, peeled, cored, and chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F and set some plates in there to warm up. Preheat your waffle iron.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour through the ground cloves. In a smaller bowl, combine the milk, pumpkin puree, applesauce, and extract.
    3. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk together to combine. Break down any dry lumps of flour. Stir in the pecans and chopped apple.
    4. Lightly spray the waffle iron with oil and place large spoonfuls of batter onto it. Gently spread the batter until it almost reaches the sides. Close and bake for about 6 minutes.
    5. Transfer cooked waffles to the warm oven while you cook with the remaining batter.
    6. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup – or your favorite waffle toppings.
