There are only 3 weeks left before 2020 and today, I’m sharing my last recipe of the year. Don’t worry, I still have 2-3 posts per week planned for the rest of the year, but unfortunately, with being away from home for 3 months, I fell a little short on recipes for this last month. I’m excited to get back home though, feeling recharged and full of inspiration to create new recipes! 2020 is going to be full of good food.

From now until January, you can expect a “what we eat when travelling” post, including how we stay “healthy” while travelling. I also have a few more travel guides coming soon, a roundup of the top recipes of the year, one last coffee break post and *maybe* our wedding photos (!!).

Finally, I have something exciting coming for you guys after Christmas! Hint, you’ll be able to get my products at their best price yet, PLUS I have something new(ish) coming out at the same time. I can’t wait!

So today, I’m sharing my last new recipe of the year and it’s a good one. Whole wheat pumpkin chai spiced waffles. Fluffy waffles perfectly spiced and lightly sweet. These are my favorite waffles this time of year an they’re so easy! Just whisk all the wet ingredients together, then add in the dry ingredients. Cook them in a waffle maker and you’re done.

These waffles actually don’t have any added sugar. The pumpkin does add a light sweetness, but I love to top these waffles with a little something sweet.

My Suggested Toppings:
  • Sunflower seed butter, obviously.
  • Spiced chia applesauce. So amazing.
  • Pumpkin butter.
  • Butter. Simple is sometimes best.
  • Maple syrup.
  • Berries.
  • Cinnamon sugar. Of course this defeats the purpose of “no added sugar”, but still.
  • Coconut whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
  • A combination of any of these toppings.

I’m thinking these would be amazing for a Holiday brunch with a spread of toppings for your friends and family to choose from. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

Servings 4


Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Transfer to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Lightly grease a waffle iron with butter or margarine. Turn it on to your desired setting (I used dark).
  • Once hot, scoop about ¾ cup of the waffle batter and spread on the waffle maker. Close and let cook for 5-6 minutes or until cooked to your liking. This will make the crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with coconut whipped cream, maple syrup, fruit and/or nut butter.


Suggested toppings: Sunflower seed butter, spiced chia applesauce, pumpkin butter, butter, maple syrup, berries, cinnamon sugar, coconut whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
I used almond milk in this recipe, but other milks will work.
