Pumpkin Waffles

Written By: Peggy Korody - Oct• 17•16

It’s fall and everything is pumpkin!  Pumpkin latte, pumpkin cornbread, pumpkin spice almonds, pumpkin cookies…  So to honor the pumpkin craze I’ll be sharing a very easy pumpkin waffle recipe (I have been asked to share an “easy” recipe).

To start with I used the Heart Smart Bisquick mix.  I don’t usually like these types of products because they often contain trans fats, which are worse for you than saturated fats.  But the Heart Smart version has no trans fat and I can live with the other ingredients.

Here’s a few more pumpkin ideas: Pumpkin Ginger Bread with a Surprise?  or Pumpkin Cornbread or Jack-O-Lantern Hummus.

Pumpkin Waffles

Serving: I like to serve these waffles with chopped pecans and pure maple syrup.


  • Bisquick Heart Smart pancake & baking mix.
  • ½ can pumpkin puree
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a bowl, follow the directions on the Bisquick box for waffles (this should make 12 4-inch waffles). Add ½ can of the pumpkin puree and the spice. Mix well.
  3. Pour batter into center of hot, greased waffle iron. Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops.
