    Pumpkin Pancakes or Waffles (Gluten-Free)

    1 ½ cups gluten-free flour mix
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    ¾ cup canned or pureed pumpkin (I used leftover candied sweet potatoes & added less sugar)
    1 cup water, more or less

    In a medium bowl, mix the pancake mix and spices together. In another bowl, whisk the egg and the brown sugar together.  Stir in the oil, pumpkin and most of the water.

    Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Stir until just combined adding more water to obtain the right consistency.

    Finally, a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe! Since there is a big correlation between celiac and dairy allergy (that is allergy and not just lactose intolerance), this is very valuable. Anybody have any good recipes that are gluten-free and have none of the top 8 allergens?

    Batter was a little thick. Just added a bit more water and spread batter on griddle. They were great. My husband who is not gluten free also thought they were very good.

    I used the Arrowhead Mills brand gluten free flour mix for this recipe. I also used 4 egg whites instead of 1 whole egg for added protein. I added 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda for leavening. I also added 1 T flax meal for fiber and omegas. These had a denser more heavy texture than regular waffles but came out fluffy and moist.


    Pumpkin waffles are a great seasonal breakfast option!

    The recipe turned out absolutely lovely! I cooked them on the waffle iron, lightly buttered them and sprinkled powdered sugar. Applesauce or apple butter is also tasty on top. I did add 1/4 tsp of salt--I guess I am used to the salt in baked products. My husband, who is suspicious of all gluten-free stuff, said these were awesome!

    Absolutely awful, epic fail! I ended up throwing them away, my kids were very disappointed. They smelled great cooking but stayed gooey and unappetizing in the center no matter how long I cooked them.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
