Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles with White Chocolate Chips


Last Updated on October 7, 2020

Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles

Mornings are always better when waffles are involved! Especially with these Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles with White Chocolate Chips. I’ve been testing out more pumpkin recipes lately, mainly because I heard there was a canned pumpkin shortage and stocked up. But there’s so much you can do with pumpkin puree, and I love a good make-ahead breakfast option.

These waffles are made with oat flour, pumpkin puree, and warm fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. I love the combination of white chocolate in these, but they’re totally optional or can be swapped for regular chocolate chips!

Serious question- are you team pancake or waffle?

I’m usually a pancake gal, but occasionally have a craving for a fluffy waffle. I love my mini waffle maker. It makes the perfect sized waffles that freeze really well! If you don’t own a waffle maker, this recipe would work well as pancakes, too.

The waffles alone are lightly sweetened, although the chocolate chips add sweetness. I love to serve these with pure maple syrup and a little bit of yogurt on top.

They’re so delicious with a hot cup of coffee, especially on a Sunday morning.

How to reheat these gluten-free pumpkin waffles

The great part about this recipe is that you can store these waffles in the freezer for up to 3 months! When ready to eat, you can pop them in the toaster or oven while still frozen for 10-12 minutes to crisp up.

You’ll need a few simple ingredients for this recipe, most of which can be swapped if needed!

  • Oat flour can be swapped with spelt flour or all-purpose flour
  • You can use any milk you like! I love using almond to keep these dairy-free
  • Maple syrup can be swapped with honey or agave
  • Coconut oil can be swapped with any other neutral tasting oil
  • White chocolate chips are optional, but can be replaced with regular chocolate chips or nuts
