Raw Autumn Harvest Pumpkin Waffles

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Waffle… what is a waffle?  Mitch Hedberg says, “A waffle is like a pancake with a syrup trap.”  I don’t know the man but I couldn’t agree more. :)  Did you know there is a National Waffle Day?  Am I the only one in the dark about such things?!  Created to celebrate the first waffle iron patent issued 1869, August 24 has long been known as National Waffle Day!  Wouldn’t you know it, I missed it by a few months.  So, I missed that “holiday” BUT I am still safe and now consider myself ahead of the game because  March 25 is International Waffle Day which originated in Sweden where it is called Våffeldagen.  There are several types of waffles – American, Belgian, Scandinavian, Liège, Hong Kong, Dutch stroopwafels and now Rawaffles!
I didn’t grow up eating waffles.  I did have them every so often as a treat when we would eat out but I bet I can count on one hand the times that ate them as a child.  In my early 30s I did go through a phase of eating Eggo Waffles that I would throw in the toaster and then slather peanut butter on them, but that was short-lived.  I find that there is something comforting about waffles.  Those golden honeycombed pockets are perfect for serving with syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, jam, honey, apple butter, peanut butter, chocolate or anything you can think of.  Here I served them with Pecan Cranberry Pumpkin Ice Cream, then if that wasn’t decadent enough, I drizzled Date Syrup over the top.   I have sprinkled pictures throughout this posting as subliminal messages, hoping to entice you… is it working?  Or did I just spoil it by admitting my evil plot?  hehe
If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can usually pick up an inexpensive one for around $12.00 at a department or household store or better yet, check out the local second-hand stores.  Who cares if it works or not, right?  If you live in an area where you need to mail order, Amazon has some cheap ones.  They have a Vintage Microwave Waffle Grill Maker for $7.99.  Who cares if it is for the microwave, our goal is to obtain it for the mold.  They also have one for $14.99, the Continental Electric Metallic Red Waffe Maker... ooooh red!  One of my favorite colors.  But fear not… if you don’t own a waffle-maker and you don’t want to go looking for one, a person could make this dough and spread it out on the dehydrator tray in  large sheet and score it into the size that you want.  Regardless of the shape or size, the flavor will not be affected.  And to that we can all say…”Amen!”



Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups buckwheat, soaked, sprouted
  • 2 cups rolled, gluten-free oats, soaked and dehydrated
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  •  1/2 tsp liquid stevia

Add in at the end:


  1. Combine; buckwheat, oats, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, salt and mix until everything is well coated.
  2. In a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, combine; buckwheat, oats, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, salt and process until everything is broken down into a powdery form.
  3. Add; pumpkin puree, water, maple syrup and liquid stevia.  Process until smooth and creamy.  Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
  4. Hand mix in the pecans, raisins, and coconut.
  5. Line the waffle maker with plastic wrap and with your fingers, press batter into the mold.  The amount will differ from machine to machine, due to size, but you want to make sure there is enough batter so the waffle maker imprints the waffle pattern on both sides.  After evenly spreading the batter over the mold, cover the top of the batter with another piece of plastic wrap.  Close the waffle maker, squeezing it shut.  Open, remove top plastic piece and lift the waffle out.  Place it on the mesh sheet that comes with the dehydrator.  Trim the excess batter if need be.
  6. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 1 hour, decrease to 105 degrees and continue to dry for 16 hours or until desired dryness is achieved.
  7. Remove from dehydrator and serve warm.
  8. Freeze in an airtight, freezer-proof container for up to 3 months.  Will last in fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Don’t forget to unplug the waffle maker.  haha So backwards.

Waffle-ka-bobs anyone?!  Cut up a waffle, spear with a toothpick and dip in date syrup!

Waffer-dervs anyone?  This is how I served them today to Bob and Reuben, our
electrician.  In the midst of the construction zone, they were served a silver platter of Waffle-dervs. hehe

  3. Jesse Gabriel says:

    Hallo Amie-Sue.
    Google Hat nicht so gut übersetzt, schade.
    Ich meine nicht süße Waffeln sondern herzhafte (englisch glaube ich hearty, ) oder pikant (englisch = spicy).
    Hoffe Google übersetzt jetzt besser!

    Viele Grüße,

    • amie-sue says:


      Hi Amie-Sue.
      Google has not translated so well, too bad.
      I mean (I think English hearty,) but not sweet waffles savory or spicy (English = spicy).
      Hope Google translated better now!

      Best regards,

      Well if nothing else Jesse, it gives a good giggle from time to time. haha I know what you mean though about the flavor. I shall see what I can do. :)

  4. Jesse Gabriel says:

      Hi Amie-Sue. Thank you that you have written back! But please, no savory, Google not like that but you know what I mean. Spicy pumpkin waffles! Regards, Jesse Gabriel

      Ok Jesse. No savory. :) I will see what I can come up with. Blessings. amie sue

  5. Darlene Brown says:

    Amie Sue…these recipes are soooo exciting. I can hardly wait to try them, they will be great for the holidays… Steve has been wanting me to return to a raw diet and these fun new way of fixing our old favorites like kale will be the bridge to make that happen….thank you so much Darlene

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Darlene,

      So wonderful to hear from you! Bob told me that he tracked you down. We speak of you often. You made such a difference in my life. :)

  6. Rhondy says:

    Greetings Amy Sue,

    Your website has been an inspiration and a valuable resource.

    I am looking forward to making the waffles. I have a similar waffle recipe that uses buckwheat, pecans, and flax powder to make a dough base. However, I am eager to try your recipe in hopes of obtaining a less dense waffle. I have been impressed with many of your recipes I have tried.

    May I ask with regard to the waffle recipe are the measurements for the buckwheat groats before or after the soak? Please let me know as I would like to make these this upcoming weekend for my family

    I am going into the kitchen as soon as I send this comment to make your pumpkin bread. I pray I am successful.

    Thank you for all that you are inspired to do for the “one good”.


    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Rhondy,

      I am thankful that you are finding some helpful information on my site. :)

      This recipe is not light a fluffy. I wish but so far I can’t imagine getting that texture in the raw world. But who knows…time and experimentation, anything is possible! My measurement for the sprouted buckwheat was after it was soaked. I had soaked and sprouted tons at one time. Buckwheat swells but not a tremendous amount. 2/3 of a cup of dry buckwheat yields 1 cup sprouted.

      Good luck and keep me posted!!

    • Jeannette says:

      Hi Amie Sue,

      I used to whip partially jelled jello to make light and fluffy desserts.

      Why don’t you try whipping kelp noodle gel or chia gel to see if it will become light and fluffy then incorporate it into the batter like you would stiffly beaten egg whites into a cake batter?

      Some of the air pockets should remain after dehydrating to give a lighter texture to dried raw baking.


      • Jeannette says:

        By the way I love your site and have enjoyed all the recipes I have tried.

        However, I am finding it hard to read due to the text colors used. All of the electric blue links on the black background are just a blur until I highlight them and the side menu in green is difficult to see.

        • amie-sue says:

          Hello Jeanette,

          Hmm, the colors on my end are green and not blue. I checked on a few different computers, iPad and iPHone and the links are green. What type of computer are you using and which browser? Sorry that it is weird on your end. Lets see how we can fix it so it is more pleasurable for you. :) amie sue

      • amie-sue says:

        That would be a great experiment Jeannette. The batter gets pretty compressed in the waffle form so not sure it would make a difference. But I will keep that in mind. Have a blessed day, amie sue

  7. Rhondy says:

    Hello Amie Sue,

    It is always exciting to receive your emails in my inbox.

    With respect to the waffles what might I substitute for the pumpkin puree? Pumpkin are not seasonal where I am now. However, I have seen butternut squash at Trader Joe’s. Please let me know what you think.

    Again, as always thank you for sharing your culinary skills.

    • amie-sue says:

      You bet Rhondy, use pumpkin puree, squash… any of those should be just fine. :) Have a great day, amie sue

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Rhondy… you can use about any squash. :) I love butternut! Have a great day, amie sue

  8. OSirius says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe. However, the ice cream like scoops on top of the waffle is what really caught my eye but I don’t see it in the recipe. Will you please direct me amie-sue. I am so thankful for your website!

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning OSurius,

      The ice cream is Pecan Cranberry Pumpkin Ice Cream. There is a link already to it within the write of the recipe. Tastes great together! Have a great day, amie sue

  9. Gayle says:

    Man! I find this AFTER I get rid of the ole waffle iron? Bummer.

    • amie-sue says:

      Isn’t that just how it goes sometimes… go to your local thrift store. I bet you can find one for a fraction of the price. That is what I did for a few of the different shaped ones that I have. :) Have a happy day. amie sue
