Ingredients you need to make Vegan Pumpkin Spice Waffles
To make vegan waffles you will need just a few ingredients to make vegan pumpkin spice waffles:
- All-Purpose Flour
- Almond Milk
- Pumpkin Puree
- Pure Cane Sugar
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Spray Oil
Flour: This recipe calls for regular all-purpose flour to make it easy.
Almond Milk: We are using almond milk as our dairy substitute in this recipe due to the taste and texture.
Pumpkin Puree: You’ll need a can of pumpkin puree for this recipe. Make sure you have pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling for this ingredient!
Avocado Oil: We will be using avocado oil for this recipe since its a neutral tasting oil.
Pumpkin Pie Spice: One of the stars of the show is Pumpkin Pie Spice! Make sure you have this for that cozy fall flavor.
Spray Oil: Select an oil that is just oil with no propellents.
Equipment you’ll need to make Vegan Pumpkin Waffles
For this recipe you’ll need a waffle maker as the main item!
- If you are looking for a budget Waffle Iron we suggest the Hamilton Beach Waffle Iron.
- If you have a bit more budget to spend for a waffle iron I highly recommend this Presto Waffle Iron from Amazon! I’ve had this same model for over 10 years and it works great every time.
You might also need a set of tablespoon Souper Cube trays to save your leftover pumpkin puree!
Milk: You can use other non-dairy milks you have on hand such as Oat Milk or Cashew Milk. For best results I think the Almond Milk cooks the best in these waffles.
Oat Flour or Gluten Free Flour: You can sub the Oat Flour or Gluten-Free Flour for All-Purpose Flour if you need this recipe to also be gluten-free.
For any leftover ingredients you’ll need to store them for another recipe or the next time you’d like to make these pumpkin spice waffles for one.
Pumpkin Puree: This usually comes in a 15 oz. can. I suggest freezing the remainder of the pumpkin the tablespoon size souper cubes to use in another recipe that calls for pumpkin.
Almond Milk: Almond milk bought from the refrigerated section of the grocery store will last in your fridge for about 7-10 days. It can last longer depending on the brand, preservatives added, and storage conditions. Shelf-stable almond milk will last one to two months in your pantry (unopened) and up to 10 days in the fridge after opening.
Flour: Flour will store for at least 6-8 months up to 1 year in an airtight container in a cool dry pantry or cabinet.
