These vegan pumpkin waffles are the ultimate Fall breakfast. Packed with pumpkin flavor, and so easy to make!
I'm officially in love with anything pumpkin flavored, though I admit I've only recently started cooking with pumpkin … and I’ve been missing out.
Luckily, that dry spell is over. This pumpkin inspired recipe is great for the waffle maker! Most vegan pancakes tend to be dense, but cooking in the waffle maker gives it a bit more of a fluffy texture.
Add any fruit or maple syrup that you have on hand as a topping! Or top them with this vegan pumpkin ice cream for a family-friendly treat.

This recipe for vegan pumpkin waffles sounds terrific!
I would love it, as I love anything pumpkin too! However, most of my family doesn't like pumpkin. Can I leave out the pumpkin? How would they come out? I've been looking for a vegan waffle recipe where the waffles turn out crispy from the waffle iron. Do these?
Thank you for your help,
Briget, I can't answer this definitively, as it's a contributed recipe. As for what you can substitute for pumpkin, it should be some sort of puree, so how about applesauce? Though again, I can't swear to it that these will come out crispy from your waffle iron. Let us know if you try it.
