Einkorn Pumpkin Pie Waffles Recipe
These pumpkin pie einkorn waffles remind me of autumn with my family. We would buy pumpkins to carve and plenty of pumpkin flavored treats! These waffles don’t require fresh pumpkin, and is quick to make! This einkorn waffle batter is very beginner friendly. No previous experience is required! Pre-made waffle mixes cost more and aren’t that much faster. These pumkpin einkorn waffles are very filling and affordable, too!
I bake my pumpkin einkorn waffles in a Texas shape using a special Texas-shaped waffle maker. It takes about 4-5 tablespoons for me to completely fill up the waffle maker. How much batter gets poured is dependent on the size and shape of your waffle maker. Be careful to not overfill the waffle maker. Use a tablespoon to fill up the waffle iron with batter until full.
Serve waffles with powdered sugar, honey, maple syrup, or jam.
I use einkorn more than any other ancient grain. While generally a bit more expensive, it’s taste and texture is phenomenal. Waffles made with einkorn flour have a great texture. There are more einkorn waffle recipes here. Einkorn is also a great ancient grain flour, in my opinion, for pancakes too! I have made numerous einkorn flour pancakes for you to check out here.
Einkorn is also an alternative ancient grain flour for people with mild gluten sensitivities. Einkorn flour only contains 14 chromosomes, which is much less than the modern wheat of today. Those with gluten-sensitivity in my household tend to feel better consuming ancient grains such as einkorn, spelt, and rye. However, you should be careful and talk to a medical professional first if this is something you’re looking into.
If you are frequently using einkorn flour, I recommend buying einkorn berries in 50lb bags. It costs about twenty percent of buying 2lb bags per lb.
