I’m sitting in blood testing center right now, next to a man who is drawing cartoons of penguins. He’s quite good. Like REALLY good. I wish I appreciated it more, but fasting for the past 12 hours has made me a bit moody. I wish I had art skills. I lack creativity.

Speaking of the lack of creativity, let’s talk about Halloween. I was rainbow bright. Original, I know. I didn’t even know who that was until I googled it. It was a friends costume. Every year I try to think outside the box for my costume. Then I remember that I have a life and don’t have hours of free time to use the hot glue gun and glitter paint on a costume I will wear once. At least other people were super creative. I think I only saw 23 angry bird costumes and 17 black swan outfits. Way to think outside the box people. Way.to.go.

Sarah is ridiculously adorable. I’m just a skank version of a cute cartoon. Damnit.

So let’s recap. I drank alcohol on Saturday. Alcohol is stupid. It makes me fall on the dancefloor, leave Laura at a party I invited her to, and wake up in her bed. Not fully clothed. Side ponytail still rockin. I’m sure she was thrilled about that. Waking up the next morning with a fuzzy sweater on my teeth is not exactly a good start to my Sunday morning. Alcohol is stupid.

My drunken picture taking skills in the cab are superb. We took about 8 pics at this quality while we sang at the top of our lungs in the back of the cab. Classy.
Yep, we were ghosts for Halloween. Exactly what we were going for.

At least Sunday was productive. And when I say productive, I mean I watched 3 movies with Laura while ingesting food I haven’t eaten in a LONG time. These items included chex mix, peanut m&ms, halloween cookies, and tortilla chips. Maybe it was because I was still drunk or maybe my body just wanted it. Either way, it felt right. I didn’t get sick nor do I have a problem using the bathroom today. Ya my love handles are probably a bit cuter today, but I don’t mind. But to make sure my love handles were looking extra adorable this week, I made some pumpkin waffles to top off the day. Pumpkin waffles when hungover with a fuzzy blanket on your teeth are always a good idea. These waffles made me miss Dom. Remember how he got me the best waffle iron ever post Regionals so I could stuff my face with food that holds the syrup in small crevices? Gosh, he’s the best. This recipe made about 5 waffles….I ate them all. In one sitting.

Paleo Pumpkin Waffles

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

4.5 from 46 reviews


  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat up your waffle iron!! If you don’t have a waffle iron, you need to go buy one, or just make pancakes instead.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together coconut milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  3. Then add the rest of the dry ingredients and pumpkin and mix together. Add a bit more coconut milk, if needed. The batter should be runny but still have a bit of girth to it. Ew, I just said girth.
  4. Ladle into your waffle maker. Be careful, they expand a bit so they will be pour over if you get ladle happy.
  5. Cook until done. Mine took about 3-4 minutes, I’d say.
  6. Add a crap ton of maple syrup on top and/or coconut butter or regular butter.

    Everyone in the family loved these! My two sons and baby girl loved it too! I’d suggest not using a Belgian waffle maker and just a simple waffle iron, most released perfectly so long as I greased the iron each time. I forgot once and it came out but in pieces. Greasing the iron with coconut oil mister was key! Great recipe! Thank you

  2. Candace says:

    We also did not add shredded coconut, and on one batch I used whole milk for the kids (they hate coconut milk) and the recipe worked great both ways. Our waffle iron is well loved and well seasoned, I wouldn’t start this recipe on a brand new iron, my guess would be that it would stick.

    I was in the mood for waffles and had seen this recipe recently. Wanted to try them out first before I made them for the rest of the family…..I ate them all…….which was three decent sized waffles. Oh my! Will definitely make again, but with other around so I can share immediately upon removing from the waffle maker.

  4. KatN says:

    Is there anything that could be substituted for the coconut milk and it turn out just as good?that kind of goes for a lot of your dessert recipies-alot seem to contain coconut milk-any suggestions?!

    1. juli says:

      you could use almond milk instead

  5. Katrina says:

    These are wonderful. It is day 1 paleo-ish in our house. I greased my waffle iron with coconut oil owing to the comments I read, I didn’t have coconut milk and we aren’t strict paleo so I used half and halfand sweetened ccoconut from the pantry. These are even toddler (READ: picky eater) approved. He told me these were Deeee-wishis!

  6. kerrie says:

    These were great! I broke down the other day and made old fashioned pancakes…. I was so sick I couldn’t believe it…. I’ve tried many of your recipes, some I liked, some I didn’t…. but this one is a keeper for sure! I appreciate all your hard work so I don’t have to. Keep it up!!!

  7. Roberta says:

    I made these according to the recipe and used as pancake mix, but like others, they came out too delicate and fell apart.
    I added two Tbsp of Tapioca flour to remaining batter and that seemed to do the trick. Tastes delicious either way.
    Checking on vanilla- 1 tsp or 1 Tbsp?

  8. melanie says:

    These turned out great!

  9. Margaret Skrovanek says:

    I knew yours would be the best pumpkin pancakes! Is it really 1T (not 1t) of vanilla? I think I have finally found a paleo website that is consistently excellent!

    LOVE these waffles. I have to double the receipt to make 3 square waffles in my waffle maker. They usually stick to the maker so I oil It well. I exchanged coconut milk for coconut cream. I also added an Extra egg to the doubled Batch and they are a little lighter. My favorite receipe for waffles, just the right amount of spice. I add a crap ton of butter…. so good 😊
