raw vegan gluten free Autumn Harvest Pumpkin Waffles with fresh diced peaches on top

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

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.
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.  Well, I hope you enjoy this recipe. Many blessings and please comment below. amie sue


Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

Add in at the end:

  • 1 cup chopped raw pecans, soaked & dehydrated
  • 1/2 cup dried raisins
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  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 the 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 (F) for 1 hour, decrease to 115 degrees (F) 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 the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

  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. :)

  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!!

  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.

  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

  10. Yvonne says:

    Hi Amie-Sue:

    So happy to be able to print your recipes again. Thank you for a raw waffle recipe. I’ve always loved them, but haven’t had any since becoming raw 15 years ago. Thanks to you for bringing back one of my favorite breakfast foods.

    Regarding this recipe, I’m not a fan of pumpkin. Would it be okay if I substituted sweet potato puree, instead.

    Because sweet potatoes have very little moisture, I make sweet potato puree by soaking shredded sweet potatoes in raw fresh squeezed apple juice with cinnamon and nutmeg overnight in the fridge to soften and moisturize, then I blend it.


    P.S. Love your recipe website.

    • amie-sue says:

      Good afternoon Yvonne,

      I am glad my print button is working again too! :) And yes, by all means, sweet potato is a great sub for pumpkin. Thank you for sharing your technique with me and so others can read it. We all learn from one another!

      Enjoy and let me know if you try the waffles, I hope they bring you joy. Blessings, amie sue
