Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream and Pecans: Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb, Sugar Free

Well, it is officially fall. Normally I hang onto summer with everything I can, but we’re moving next month and I just want moving day to get here already!

To start off fall right, try these yummy grain free, low carb, gluten free pumpkin waffles. Everyone in the whole family will love these delicious waffles!

Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream and Pecans

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 C almond flour
  • 1 1/2 T coconut flour
  • 2 T sweetener (I used Swerve)
  • 1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 T pure pumpkin
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 T coconut oil (melted)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of cloves
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 T heavy whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks
  • 1/2 T sugar free maple syrup (plus more for topping)
  • 1/2 T chopped pecans
Directions:
 
1. Preheat waffle maker and grease, if necessary.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, salt, sweetener, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and baking powder.
3. Mix in egg white, pumpkin, coconut oil and almond milk. Whisk until a thick, smooth batter is achieved.
4. Pour batter onto the waffle maker and bake until golden brown (mine took about five minutes).
5. Carefully lift the waffle maker lid and allow the steam to dissipate for a minute or two before attempting to remove the waffle. The waffle is not as durable as a wheat- based waffle, so it is some what fragile. Be careful pulling it out. Set it on a plate and set aside for a moment.
6. Combine the whipped cream and sugar free maple syrup in a bowl, and whisk well until the syrup is incorporated. Top the waffle with the whipped  cream mixture.
7. Top off with more sugar free maple syrup (if desired) and chopped pecans. Enjoy!
Makes about 2 waffles.

It takes a lot of trial and error to find the "right" fit for a low carb recipe. I have made some ... different low carb desserts. You don't need to go through that! I made a list of my favorite ingredients as well as what stores you can find them at. Enjoy!

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
