Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Waffles

The fluffiest waffle ever!

I adapted the Simple Pumpkin Pancake recipe and turned it into waffles. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, free of refined sugar, and packed with protein for the ultimate healthy waffles great for meal-prepping for the week or a leisurely weekend brunch. This is a must-make this fall!

So light + fluffy with the perfect hint of pumpkin + spice.
