Who doesn't love a fat, fluffy stack of waffles for breakfast? The only thing to make it better would be to make them PUMPKIN flavored! So here we are! These waffles are so fluffy. They're packed with pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, with warm flavors like nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and clove.

Tips for the perfect waffles
• Use a measuring cup to pour your batter. I am terribly guilty of overfilling my waffle iron. This results in tons of batter leaking out and running down the sides of the iron. Using a measuring cup (⅓ cup, no more than ½ cup) is super helpful. It helps get all of your waffles the same size, and you don't make a mess or lose any batter to overfilling!
• Let your waffles get crispy. Cooking your waffles until they are crispy will make your waffles perfect! As they cool, finished waffles can get soft while, especially if you're waiting for the rest of them to cook. Making sure they're nice and crispy when coming out of the waffle iron is key to waffle perfection. I'm not saying to burn them, but they should be slightly crispy to the touch.
• Keep them warm in the oven. I recommend this, especially if you're making a big batch of waffles. Preheat your oven to 200°F. Place your cooked waffles on a baking sheet, and just pop them in the oven. Let them stay in the oven until you're completely finished cooking. Viola! Perfectly crisp, warm waffles!
If you have leftover waffles left from your breakfast, have no fear! You can keep leftover waffles in the fridge for up to 3 days. Which means you can have more waffles breakfasts during the week!
Tip for reheating: You can reheat your waffles a few different ways. Here are some way I like to:
• Using a toaster. This is the easiest and quickest way to reheat leftover waffles. It's perfect if you're only reheating one or two waffles. Turn your toaster to a medium-low setting (usually between 2-3). They will come out warm and perfectly crispy!
• In the oven. This option is great if you are reheating a large amount of waffles. Set your oven to about 300°F. Place waffles on a baking sheet. Pop in the oven for about 5-7 minutes. The waffles will heat up and just start to crisp up!
