Grain-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles are fluffy, filling and perfectly spiced for the season! And they’re made with almond and buckwheat flour, so they’re not only grain-free, but gluten-free too!


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup cashew milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 tbsp pure pumpkin (such as E.D. Smith)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F and grease a 6-waffle silicone mold. (I also place the mold on a baking sheet for stability).
  • In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the almond flour, buckwheat flour, coconut sugar, pumpkin spice, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, pumpkin and eggs. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the silicone mold using a spoon to spread it out evenly.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the waffles are browned and firm.
  • Remove from oven and let the waffles cool in the mold for a few minutes before turning them out onto a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve warm with melted dark chocolate, maple syrup and/or coconut cream.
  • Store any leftover waffles in an airtight container on your counter for 1-2 days, or freeze for later enjoyment.


  1. You can use light or dark buckwheat flour. I prefer to use light so the colour of the pure pumpkin is more noticeable.
  2. These waffles were baked in a silicone mold but a waffle iron would work too. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time according to your waffle maker.
