Pumpkin pie waffle bites are such a treat for fall and winter. You get the flavors of pumpkin pie in mini waffles. Great for kids and adults who are looking for something fun for breakfast. This pumpkin spice waffle recipe is easy, quick, and bite-size!
I used to think that waffle bites were this incredibly difficult and time-consuming tiny waffles, sure they were great, you get to eat 10 waffles for breakfast (which the kids really love) but who has time to whip up 50, 60 or even 100 waffle bites for a weekday breakfast? Definitely not me, so what took me to make this Pumpkin Pie Waffle Bites Recipe?
Well, I’m a mom after all, and if the little ones are happy with waffle bites I make them, but truth is these are not even half as difficult or time-consuming as I thought they were going to be! Mainly because they are not itty bitty they are rather large, so you don’t need to mix a zillion of them, just around 2 or 3 per person, which is totally achievable even on a busy day.
What To Serve On Pumpkin Pie Waffles
The other great thing that I love about them? They are the best for the little ones that get full fast (and then proceed to leave half of the plate intact), and since they are small, and you get 2 or 3 you can try with different topping ideas. Pumpkin Pie Waffles with caramel sauce? Go for it! With maple syrup? With butter, with cinnamon and peanut butter? All the options are great, and you get enough waffles to test and try different things which again the little ones love!
Pumpkin Spice Mini Waffles
Besides all that (the fact that they are easy, fast, and a crowd favorite) they’re also incredibly delicious, and I’m not saying this lightly I really mean it! They taste like a pumpkin pie meets a waffle, mainly because you have all the pumpkin puree flavor and then the pumpkin spice, all thrown into one waffle.
Oh, and to make them small? Just pour a bit of batter in the center of your waffle maker and you are all set.
- 1 ½ Cup flour
- 2 Cups milk
- ¾ Cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ Cup sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Tsps vanilla extract
- 1 Tsp baking powder
- 2 Tsps pumpkin spice
- ¼ Butter stick
- Preheat the waffle maker to medium heat.
- In a bowl stir together the pumpkin, flour, milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and pumpkin spice.
- Pour a bit of the batter in the center of the waffle maker.
- Bake for 5 – 8 minutes.
- Serve with butter squares and caramel sauce drizzles.
How To Store Mini Waffles
If you have leftover mini waffles, simply allow them to cool down on the counter. Then transfer to an airtight container or bag and store in the fridge for up to five days. They will dry out some as each day passes.
Can You Freeze Pumpkin Waffles
Yes! These are a great item to freeze and use for meal prepping for a quick breakfast later on. Simply allow the waffles to completely cool, and then transfer over to a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Toss in the freezer for 20 minutes until they begin to harden. Then transfer over into a freezer bag or airtight container.
These mini waffles will store for up to three months. Remove from freezer and place in the fridge to thaw, or toss right into the microwave for a quick reheat.
