Made with Buttermilk Pancake Mix and Canned Pumpkin Puree
No need to make pancake or waffle mix from scratch for this recipe! Sometimes we just need a shortcut and a time saver when we're feeding ourselves or our families. Using store-bought buttermilk pancake mix makes this recipe so simple and quick to whip up. This is a great way to introduce young kids to baking and helping out in the kitchen as well!
Baked in a Dash Mini Waffle Maker
I love my Dash mini waffle maker because it's compact and makes great waffles. (Not sponsored! Just a helpful tip) This is the perfect kitchen tool if you are baking for one or two people or if you have limited kitchen space. I'm talking to you, apartment and dorm room bakers 🙂 The waffles do cook very quickly though, so totally works for more than 2 people! I like to put my waffles on a baking sheet to stay warm in the oven as I continue to make them one at a time. This also helps your waffles get a nice crispy, toasted exterior.
Top with Pecans, Pure Maple Syrup or Chocolate Chips
When ready to serve, top your pumpkin spice waffles with chopped pecans or chocolate chips and some pure maple syrup. This flavor combo is amazingggg. Bonus points if you candy your pecans first! For chocolate lovers, add some chocolate chips to the batter before baking your waffles.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Yes! You may use waffle mix if you don't have pancake mix. I would refer to your brand of mix's instructions and ingredient ratios to be sure they are similar to what I have listed in this recipe. You may need to do some tweaking if your brand of mix calls for different ingredients or ratios.
I would recommend using mashed sweet potato or mashed banana in place of canned pumpkin. Let me know if you try one of these variations and how it works out!
Yes, to freeze your waffles, lay them out on a parchment-lined baking tray so they are not touching. Place the tray in the freezer until your waffles are frozen. Transfer waffles to a large Ziploc bag and return to the freezer until ready to use. Waffles are best enjoyed within 1-2 months of freezing.
Simply wrap your leftover stack of waffles in aluminum foil and keep in the fridge. Add to a toaster oven, skillet or oven to heat before enjoying.
