  1. Looks YUM!!! I looove pumpkin- i hate that Ireland isnt in to the whole pumpkin thing- theyre so yummy!! I made these pumpkin-carrot cake cupcakes once that i must share- you’d make a fantastic version (you seem to make anything taste good!!!)
    As always, looks yum!

    • Belle-
      Thanks! 🙂
      I can’t believe Ireland isn’t pumpkin-crazy like the US (people go INSANE for pumpkin here… it’s already selling out at grocery stores).
      Pumpkin Carrot Cake sounds amazing, that’s such a good idea. I just made a Carrot Cake but I used applesauce… I wonder how that would work with pumpkin instead!

  2. Looks yummy! yay for pumpkin season – I think I might try these with oat flour instead of buckwheat. Do you think that would work OK?

    • Lauren-
      Thanks so much! 🙂
      I think I tried these waffles with oat flour and it didn’t work out too well. They weren’t crispy, they were more like pancakes just in the form of waffles. They were also a bit difficult to get out of the waffle maker. I mean, they tasted good but the texture was just off.
      If you don’t have buckwheat flour then I guess you could give it a try, but I can’t guarantee you’ll like them haha! 🙂

  3. I love having waffles for breakfast.. but usually they are a rarity as waffles are often so unhealthy so I love your healthy recipe and I definitely will be making it!

  4. I love that these are made with only 1 type of gluten free flour! I love buckwheat flour. And pumpkin is a great binder for it 🙂

  7. Just a reminder, folks on blood pressure or diabetes meds should check before using Stevia. Several sites urge caution.
    Super delicious waffles with a bit of sugar added instead. Thanks so much for this single flour recipe!
