today, i present you with pumpkin protein waffles…paleo pumpkin protein waffles!

paleo pumpkin protein waffle recipe

my first waffle making experience was a disastrous failure! mega-fail. (for those of you who follow me on instagram, i’m sure you got a good laugh!)  i even broke our brand new waffle maker i had bought on my very first attempt!

two months and one delicious pumpkin waffle recipe later, i am proud to show off my new waffle-making skills!

pumpkin protein waffles

  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (make your own!)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp organic milled flax
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (or splenda/stevia for a sweeter taste)
  • 1 tsp macadamia nut oil (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. pre-heat waffle maker to medium low heat
  2. stir in/dissolve the pumpkin into the egg whites
  3. mix dry ingredients separately & add to the wet ingredients
  4. pour in 1/2 cup measure of waffle mix evenly onto waffle iron
  5. close shut and set timer for 2 1/2-3 minutes (time may vary based on waffle maker)

i would choose this healthy, protein-packed, 150 calorie waffle over the state fair’s 1,000+ calorie belgian waffles any day!
