I have been drowning myself in the most heavenly macadamia nut lattes, cozy shrimp tempura udon noodles, and these creamy green tea puffs these last few days yet I have not been able to stop thinking about these waffles.

Yes, it’s about 80-90 degrees F here in Oahu but yet, I still need a pumpkin waffle fix ASAP.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    These waffles were delicious. I added 1/2 cup more of pumpkin for extra pumpkin flavor. 

  3. I would love to try them, but can you suggest something to replace the eggs in the recipe? My daughter’s allergic, but I think she would love these. Thanks!

  4. What is the brand of your waffle maker? I’m looking for a good thin waffle maker

  5. Never had an idea about pumpkin waffles. This would definitely taste great. A good way to make the kids love pumpkins. Thank you for sharing. Images are lovely. So I pinned an image on my pinboard.

  6. In the recipe you call for a can of pumpkin. How many ounces is the can supposed to be?

  7. Can you double this recipe 

  8. What are the calories, fat, protein, sugar, etc in these delicious looking Pumpkin Churro Waffles that I desperatly want to make.  Our family has just started to eat more healthy and am not sure if this meal has too much fat and calories.
