These easy one bowl vegan pumpkin waffles are so incredibly simple and ready in less than 10 minutes! Made from oat flour, cinnamon, and pumpkin puree, these pumpkin waffles are a family favorite and perfect fall weekend breakfast! 


  • 2 cups coarsely ground oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or cane sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice blend 
  • 1/4 teaspoon arrowroot starch or cornstarch (optional, but recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed *mixed with 1/3 cup water, set for 5 minutes
  • 1 cup dairy free milk *mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil for waffle machine
  • Toppings of choice: berries, coconut cream, chocolate chips, nut or seed butter


  1. Prepare the flaxseed mixture and vegan buttermilk first.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice blend, and arrowroot together.
  3. Add in the ground flaxseed mixture, dairy free milk mixture, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract. Mix until there are no more clumps of flour.
  4. Heat the waffle machine and brush the cooking oil onto the waffle machine. Let the oil sit there for a minute to heat.
  5. Prepare the waffles according to your waffle machine. I recommend using 2/3-1 cup batter per waffle.
  6. Gently remove the waffle from the machine and serve with desired toppings.


*Please prepare the flaxseed mixture and vegan buttermilk before whisking the dry ingredients.

You can also use gluten free 1:1 baking flour or all-purpose flour in place of oat flour.
