Pumpkin Buckwheat Waffles (gluten free)

These pumpkin waffles remind me of my mom’s pumpkin pie and these pumpkin muffins. It’s like your having dessert for breakfast. Just kidding!  My little taste tester’s Miss E and Q gobbled these waffles up with smiley faces. I mean who doesn’t love pumpkin, they are healthy and delicious.


Pumpkins are a fall must have in my house. Not just for carving but eating as well, sweet pumpkins that is. The flesh of pumpkins are a great source of fibre, vitamin A & C, folate, potassium, and phosphorous. Similar to other orange vegetables, they are high in the antioxidant beta carotene which is a precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A plays a key role in night vision, healthy skin and teeth.

To be honest, I have very little experience with making gluten free foods. For some reason I just couldn’t get the right ratio of flours. With a little (more like a lot) of experimenting, I found the combination of brown rice, oat, and buckwheat flours worked the best. One thing I love about gluten free recipes is they tend to use healthier ingredients, by healthier I mean less sugar. We could all go for less sugar in our diets.
