So, chaffles have taken the world by storm! I came up with the perfect pumpkin pie chaffle recipe for the fall!

Pumpkin Pie Chaffle

I decided it was time to move on to even better ones once I figured out how to make the most basic and fool-proof chaffle recipe.

Cold weather is around the corner and we’re craving pumpkin spice everything.

I thought “what better way to celebrate fall, than to make a chaffle with the best fall flavors – cinnamon, nutmeg and a little “sugar.”

This pumpkin pie chaffle follows my original chaffle recipe with a few tweaks to bring in the pumpkin spice flavors.

What I will say about this chaffle is to tread carefully. A little pumpkin flavor goes a long way in this one, and you don’t need much.

This pumpkin pie chaffle recipe makes 2 large chaffles, and 4 minis. The serving size is 1 big chaffle, or 2 mini chaffles.

You can cut the recipe in half if you’d like!

This chaffle doesn’t need syrup. Eat it with some whipped cream and pecans on top, it’ll be like you never missed pumpkin pie in the first place.

Here’s how you make a pumpkin pie chaffle

You’re going to mix your dry ingredients together first.

Then, you’ll add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and make paste.

Thoroughly coat your cheese and make sure the mixture covers all of the cheese so you don’t have any holes.

Spread the mixture across your waffle maker.

Pumpkin Pie Chaffle batter

Bake in your waffle maker according to its specifications.

I also have some detailed notes for low carb-ers vs keto-ers in the recipe card!

A fall recipe to celebrate chaffles and the change of the season.


Units Scale


  1. In a bowl, mix together, egg and vanilla extract and pumpkin puree.
  2. Mix in baking powderalmond flour, swerve, cinnamon and allspice
  3. Lastly, add in the mozzarella cheese and coat it evenly with the mixture.
  4. Spray your waffle maker with oil and let it heat up to its highest setting.
  5. Cook the waffle, checking on it every 5 minutes until it gets crunchy and golden. A tip: Make sure you put in half of your batter. The waffle maker can overflow, making it a messy process. I suggest putting down a silpat mat for an easy clean up.
  6. Take it out carefully, and top it with whipped cream and pecans.


  • Don’t try to force your waffle maker open with the batter in. Your batter will come apart and the waffle won’t retain its shape. You’ll know your chaffle is ready when the lid opens easily without feeling like anything is stuck. 
  • This recipe can be frozen, and reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Let it cool for 1 minute, and the crunch comes right back – it’s actually crunchier than fresh, which seems like a miracle to me! 
  • The recipe will freeze up to 7 days. 
  • As indiated by users, the recipe makes 4 mini chaffles in the DASH mini waffle maker, or 2 chaffles in a regular sized chaffle maker. Eat what fits in your macros, but the nutrition information listed is for 1 large chaffle.
  • 99% of pumpkin puree cans have sugar. It comes from the pumpkin itself If you’re keto make it super low carb by avoiding the pumpkin puree and just go for the spice. It tastes just as good and saves you 5g of carbs.
  • Note, this recipe uses a low moisture, part skim mozzarella. If you use a full fat, or non-fat cheese, this will change your macros.

  1. Surprisingly awesome. Just found chaffles this weekend and trying many recipes. Missed breakfast sandwiches so much. Thank you

  2. This thing is so freaking good! Crispy from the cheese, flavored just right, filling, and not to mention – totally instaworthy!!! I’m so lucky to call you my bestie

  3. EASILY 5 stars bro this thing is amazing. I don’t even like “pumpkin spice” things but this is just so perfect for fall and the pumpkin isn’t too overpowering. A wonderful breakfast or snack. Quick and easy. Just so delish!

    1. Loved it – I just started on keto and needed something that felt carby this morning. This is a win.

  4. Yum! This makes me want to get a waffle iron. Thankfully I have a nearby “neighbor” that would probably make me a chaffle!
