  • 1 ¼ cup white whole wheat flour I use King Arthur brand
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin


  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, milk, egg, and maple syrup
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves to the wet ingredients. Carefully stir to incorporate all ingredients, being careful not to overmix the batter.
  • Add oil to the batter and stir until blended.
  • Bake in a hot waffle iron, according to manufacturer instructions
  • Enjoy!


The batter should still have some lumps after mixing.
Cooking time will depend on the waffle iron used as well as what heat setting the waffle iron is set to.
Use canned pumpkin for this recipe, not pumpkin pie filling.
Don't mix the oil in sooner than the recipe calls for.
