Paleo Pumpkin Waffles

Category: Breakfast Recipes

Satisfy your paleo cravings with these wholesome waffles, naturally sweetened with pumpkin puree and a quick raspberry compote.


  • 12 ounces raspberries
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree 
  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly, plus more for the waffle iron
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs, beaten 
  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Put half of the raspberries in a small saucepan with a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons water. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the raspberries break down and the mixture comes to a boil and thickens to a jamlike consistency, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the remaining raspberries off heat. Let stand until ready to serve.
  2. Whisk the pumpkin, coconut oil, vanilla and eggs in a medium bowl until completely combined. Vigorously whisk in the coconut flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt until no lumps of dry flour remain.
  3. Prepare a waffle iron for medium-high heat and brush both sides with coconut oil. Fill each section of the iron about three-quarters of the way full (there should still be some waffle iron showing). Cook until the waffles are golden brown and slightly crisp, 6 to 10 minutes. Keep the waffles warm in a 200-degree F oven or covered with foil on a plate; repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with the raspberry compote.
