Delicious waffles made with pumpkin puree and an AIP-friendly pumpkin spice.


For the AIP pumpkin spice

For the waffles

  • 2 teaspoons of gelatin (4 g)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of hot water
  • 1 cup (110 g) of cassava flour
  • salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) of cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) of baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of reserved pumpkin spice
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons (20g) of coconut oil, solid weight, then melted
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of honey, plus additional to drizzle
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup (115 ml) of boiling hot water


  1. Prepare a small batch of pumpkin spice by combining the spices in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin powder over two tablespoons of hot water in a small bowl. Set aside to keep warm while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Mix the cassava flour, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda, and pumpkin spice in a bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted ghee, honey, and pumpkin puree. Stir in the gelatin mixture and the 1/2 cup of hot water.  Then add to the flour mixture, stirring continuously until you achieve a thick slurry consistency. (This will be approximately 4oz.) Add more boiling water as needed to achieve the desired consistency.
  5. In the meantime, heat a greased waffle maker. Add the batter, cooking the waffles until crispy. Remove carefully and serve with a drizzle of honey.
