About Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles is a perfect breakfast or brunch recipe, loaded with fall flavors. Apart from classic waffle ingredients, it has pumpkin spice mix, fresh pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pecans.
These pumpkin and pecan waffles are easy to make, fluffy, and come together in no time using simple ingredients. These waffles are not as crispy as the classic waffles but they are absolutely delicious and make for a perfect fall breakfast dish.
Serve them with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey or top them with greek yogurt, peanut butter, or sautéed cinnamon apples for a fall-flavored breakfast or brunch.
You can also top them with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream with extra maple syrup and serve them as dessert.
This recipe serves 4 but can be easily doubled or tripled.
Flour – I have used a combination of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. You can make them with only all-purpose flour as well.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – Make pumpkin pie spice at home, or use a store-bought one.
Pumpkin Puree – Use homemade pumpkin puree, or get canned pumpkin puree to save on time.
Pecans – Pecans add that perfect crunch to the soft and fluffy waffles. You can substitute pecans with walnuts or almonds.
Maple Syrup – It gives an earthy sweetness. You can also substitute it with honey.
Others – You will also need baking powder, eggs, milk, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract.
