Gluten Free White Rice Flour Pumpkin Waffles

My house is always loud. Not just a little bit, but deafening oftentimes. Almost all of the noise can be attributed to my two boys. They seem not to have two noise levels, just loud. This is the opposite of me. I love a quiet house. When I was in my early 20's I would go on trips by myself just to hear the quiet. I love sitting in the middle of a large field with only the sound of nature (and sometimes a great book).

My two boys hate to be quiet. They love to play with their toys with tons of action noises and fight scenes. If they go more than a couple of minutes without talking they get bored. I love my two boys, but sometimes I miss being able to watch a movie or TV show and hear all the words. Most of the time I understand a fraction of the dialogue and piece the rest of it together while my kids talk in my ear. I do know that I need to enjoy it while they still talk to me since when they are teenagers they will never want to tell me anything.

I have been experimenting with new gluten free breakfast recipes. My youngest is pretty easy going food wise and likes gluten free pancakes and waffles as much as wheat based ones. Yesterday morning I tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Waffles from the Better Homes and Gardens website.

This recipe has 11 ingredients. It takes 30 minutes of total time, 25 minutes of which is active and makes 12 to 14 servings. I made a number of changes to the original recipe. First I halved the recipe. I only had a half can of pumpkin, so I reduced the number of servings. Since I eat gluten free I replaced the wheat flour with white rice flour. Instead of the spices I used 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. I followed the rest of the recipe as written.

These waffles rose beautifully. Sometimes switching flours can cause recipes to be too dense or have too much liquid, but these waffles were perfect. I preferred them topped with just butter, but they were also delicious re-heated the next day with maple syrup. This recipe would work well to make in big batches and then freeze for quick weekday meals.

For the recipe go to Pumpkin Waffles.

  1. Oh, I can totally relate to the noise and the desperate wish for quiet. This afternoon, my two were arguing and I asked why; she told me, "He won't let me make noise and all I feel like doing is making noise! It's what I want to do right now!" Can you imagine having that be your whole goal for the afternoon? What a life. I have never tried pumpkin in waffles or pancakes but I've been seeing this around; I want to say that IHOP did it this fall? It sounds really good to me, thank you for the recipe. :)

    1. Sound like an argument my two boys would have :) Pumpkin is great in baked goods since it gives them a moist texture and doesn't have a lot of flavor by itself. IHOP does normally have pumpkin pancakes, the one we have here though is not so great. The one in Seattle was great, so it must be a regional thing! I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. haha about the boys and noise. Sounds just like my house. Would you like to have a toddler as well. I'll be more than willing to send Madison over. Maybe with a girl in the mix the boys might tone it down a little but I'm sure she can give them a run for their money. :) My boys are huge fans of waffles and we can never have enough. Waffles and pancakes. Sounds pretty easy to make as well. Guess I see what we're having for breakfast on Sunday. :)

    1. No thanks for the addition of a toddler :) She's adorable, but my two boys are enough! My boys are big waffles and pancakes fans as well. They can eat a whole batch!

  3. It's the boy thing - they don't know how to be quiet. Seriously, it's not in their nature.

  4. I have teens and they still talk. Even the grown ones still call home to talk. :)

    I have to go to a movie to hear the words, it's the only time the whole show can run and the kids won't be distracted and talking. ;)

    The waffles sound great, nice twist w/the pumpkin.

    1. I haven't been to a movie in a while, that might be the perfect solution :) I love my kids, but the noise can be a little overwhelming sometimes!

  5. We love waffles, and you can't go wrong with anything that has pumpkin! I love sneaking veggies in that way.

    Boys can be so loud. I like quiet too. It's always so nice at night once my little guy is in bed and it's quiet again.

    1. They can be loud, with two of them they seem to feed off of each other :) I agree about sneaking in foods, I put prunes and beans in various brownie recipes. They taste great and my kids don't notice the added nutrition!

    1. It was only last year that I was diagnose so I ate gluten for a long time :) This recipe is nice since it can be made both as written or changed to be gluten free.

  10. I've started using Bisquick Gluten-Free Mix, the waffles turn out great using this mix, but the pancakes not so great. These waffles sound yummy.

    1. I have used the Bisquick mix too. I agree that it makes better waffles than pancakes, the pancakes have a weird texture :)
