These Keto Pumpkin Waffles are the bomb dot com. They only take 10 minutes to make, and have just 7g net carbs.
Fall is here, and the Pumpkin Train has officially left the station. Toot toot!
As long as we're talking about pumpkins, I feel like I should mention David Pumpkins. (video in link) It's this SNL sketch that takes place in a haunted house ride called A 100 Floors of Flights. It turns out that 73 of the 100 floors are dedicated to a guy named David S. Pumpkins and his dancing b-boy skeletons.
You kind of have to see it. My kids and I watched it 10 times in a row last October. It's the perfect blend of hilarious and inappropriate.
We were dying.
But pumpkin waffles, let's discuss.
I've adapted my tried and true Keto waffle recipe to incorporate pumpkin. It's also got pumpkin spice to make it feel like Fall. I used sweetener in this recipe so it would be good on its own or just with butter. If you are going to use syrup, then you can skip the sweetener.
Its services are no longer required.
What kind of sugar-free syrup can you use?
You've got two schools of thought on this one. There are fancy Keto syrups you can buy in specialty stores and on Amazon that you can use if you like. Or you can go the low-brow route and buy the sugar-free syrup you can find in the pancake aisle of the supermarket. They use the same sweeteners and have the same carb counts, but one costs twice as much as the other. But do what you like.
This recipe makes for a quick and easy breakfast or brunch.
It takes less than 10 minutes to make, and has just 7g net carbs. You just throw all the ingredients in the blender, push the button, and in a few seconds, you've got your batter. Pour it into a waffle iron and cook for a few minutes and you'll be done before you know it. Which is good.
That means you've got more time to watch David Pumpkins.Print

Why canola oil and not vegetable oil on this one? Can vegetable oil be substituted?
Yes, you can use vegetable oil or canola oil in these waffles. You can also use melted butter if you’d like. I listed canola oil in the recipe because it has a much higher amount of Omega-3 fatty acids than vegetable oil, but you can use them interchangeably.
I am all in on pumpkin season! I'm ready for everything to be pumpkin spice.
Then this is the recipe for you!
