Pumpkin season, yay!!!! These Pumpkin Waffles are the perfect simple fall breakfast idea – make a double batch for the freezer!
Hey there Pumpkin Waffles! I don’t know about you folks, but around here the kids are headed back to school. Which says one thing loud and clear to me – it’s time for all the pumpkin recipes! And if you love breakfast as much as I do, make sure to check out our huge collection of breakfast recipes. (I’m a big fan of this poached egg trick!).
Pumpkin Waffle Ingredients
- Bisquick – Yes, yes, this is the secret ingredient. But as my mother-in-law says, why make it harder than we need to? I love a good recipe hack.
- Pumpkin pie spice – Grab some from the spice aisle, or make your own with our pumpkin spice recipe. (Ours is better, I promise).
- Pure pumpkin puree – Make sure you’re using pure pumpkin puree and not canned pumpkin pie filling. These are two very different things! You can usually find canned pumpkin with the canned vegetables, but sometimes it’s stocked in the baking aisle.
- Olive oil – I’m a fan of olive oil for pretty much everything, but any mild vegetable oil will work in this recipe.
- Egg – A medium or large egg is fine here.
- Milk – I prefer whole milk, but any type will work. Add more as necessary to thin the batter to your liking.

How Do You Make Pumpkin Waffles?
⭐ First, whisk everything together in a large bowl.
⭐ Next, add extra milk as necessary to get the batter thickness you like (I tend toward a thicker batter).
⭐ Finally, cook on your favorite waffle iron.
Preparation, Storage, and Reheating
Can You Make Pumpkin Waffles Ahead of Time?
Yes, you can make pumpkin waffles ahead of time. I love making a triple or quadruple batch and then stashing the extras in the freezer for future easy breakfasts.
Can I Freeze Pumpkin Waffles?
Yes, you can freeze pumpkin waffles, Let them cool completely, then store in a freezer bag or other freezer safe container. If you want to grab and reheat individual waffles, make sure to separate layers with parchment paper.
Waffles will last several months in the freezer.
How to Reheat Pumpkin Waffles
You can always reheat pumpkin waffles in the microwave for about 60 seconds (depending on the wattage of your microwave), but my favorite way to reheat them is in a toaster or toaster oven .
Toast on medium until they are heated through and edges are crispy. Make sure to serve with pure maple syrup and if you’re feeling ambitious, a pat of whipped butter.
What to Serve with Pumpkin Waffles
We topped ours with butter and pure maple syrup, but if you want to get fancy definitely try some Whipped Butter or fresh whipped cream. Mmmmmm.
To make this recipe incredibly simple, we started with Bisquick. I’m a firm believer in using shortcuts when it will make life easier – and who doesn’t need a little help at the beginning of a new school year?
Pumpkin Waffles with Bisquick
Once upon a time I thought using prepared mixes was a dirty little secret. But then I asked my mother-in-law for her biscuit recipe. She’s laughed and said “BISQUICK!”
She’s an exceptional cook and makes nearly everything from scratch so when she told me she loves Bisquick and to stop making things harder than they need to be, I promised myself I’d no longer feel guilty for going the easy route!

Tools We Love
- Belgium Waffle Maker – I love love love this waffle maker! We’ve had it for years and it turns out great waffles every single week. If you watch our live show, you’ve seen me use it many times.
- Oil mister – This is the perfect gift for folks who want to make sure they know exactly what they’re spraying on their pans. We like to put olive oil in ours, but you could use anything from vegetable oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, or whatever you like! Just pump the top a few times and it sprays a fine mist of the oil you chose.
- Electric mixer – I love love love love love (x’s 100) my stand mixer. Really and truly. But my daily work horse is this handheld electric mixer. It even comes in allll the colors. Which, yay!
