These crisp and fluffy Pumpkin Waffles are filled with plenty of spices; they remind me of the pumpkin muffins we have loved for years.

This recipe comes together in just a few minutes and the house smells wonderful as they are cooking.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

My boys devoured this whole batch just as soon as they were off the waffle iron. And as a result, this has become a fall breakfast favorite with my family.

More often than not, I serve these waffles with my grandmother’s Vanilla Waffle Sauce. (Waffle Sauce is our favorite topping for almost every sweet breakfast!)

These waffles are also delicious with maple syrup or Brown Sugar Butter Syrup.

Pumpkin waffles are a great way to welcome fall; and I’m sure we’ll be welcoming many more chilly days with future batches for breakfast or for dinner.

Pumpkin Recipes For Fall

From September to December, (and truthfully quite often at other times throughout the year) you’ll find us making and enjoying everything from Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal for breakfast to the family favorite Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Pumpkin puree works well in both sweet and savory recipes and plenty in between. It doesn’t feel like fall until we’ve had Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for breakfast and I have a batch of Pumpkin Muffins or a loaf of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread baking in the oven.

Make your own Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice to have on hand so you’re ready to brew a hot Pumpkin Spice Latte whenever the craving strikes. This Pumpkin Bundt Cake with fluffy Vanilla Bean Icing is a crowd-pleaser for any occasion.

And if you love the taste of pumpkin pie and coffee cake, this Layered Pumpkin Coffee Cake should be on your dessert menu this week, too.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles are a fall favorite!

Kitchen Tip: I use this waffle iron to make this recipe.

      I haven't tried it myself. You might need to increase the flour slightly, but it should work. I have pancakes on the menu for this week, so I'll let you know!
