Easy Pumpkin Waffle Ingredients
- Liquid Foundation: Use unsweetened almond or oat milk in the batter of these easy pumpkin waffles. If you're not vegan or dairy-free, regular milk will work.
- Pumpkin Essence: Canned pumpkin puree gives us that classic pumpkin flavor.
- Vegan Moisture: To keep this recipe vegan, we use melted vegan butter or coconut oil. If you're not vegan or dairy-free, regular butter will also work.
- Natural Sweetness: Organic coconut sugar, cane sugar, or brown sugar is used to give our pumpkin waffles a light sweetness.
- Rising Agent: Baking powder makes our vegan pumpkin waffles nice and fluffy. No eggs needed.
- Flavor Enhancers: Cinnamon and vanilla extract our used to give a warm flavor to our vegan pumpkin waffles.
- Flour Base: We recommend using regular or gluten-free all-purpose flour in this recipe. When going gluten-free, I vouch for King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten-free flour. (Best to steer clear of alternatives like almond or baking flours.)
