I got off the chickpea flour train for awhile there. Don’t you worry though, I’M BACK ON!
Sorry, to shout. I just get really excited when I remember how delicious something is. You know when you stop eating something because you were slightly obsessed with it? Yeah, that was me with chickpea flour. I decided to give it a go again and I am so glad I did! It is extremely high in protein and fiber tastes delicious (in my humble opinion)
Chickpea flour can kind of get a bad rep if you don’t know how to cook it. Long story short, the recipe can come out REAL bad. It can be dry and make your mouth seem like the Sahara desert. I wouldn’t know this from personal experience or anything.
Definitely from personal experience.
The trick is to always have a healthy fat with whatever recipe you’re using! You don’t need much, in this recipe I only used 1 tbsp of pecan butter. It was just enough to keep the waffle nice and moist.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to say the “m” word.
Regardless, this recipe is delish and can easily be doubled, tripled or more to make for a crowd or to freeze for meal prep!

Candied Pecan Waffle
All the flavors of pecan pie in a single waffle
- 1/4 cup Chickpea Flour
- 1 tbsp Pecan Butter
- 1 tbsp Pumpkin Puree
- 1/4 cup Dairy-Free Milk
- pinch of Salt
- pinch of Cinnamon
- 1/4 cup Pecans
- 1-2 tbsp Maple Syrup
- pinch of Cinnamon and Nutmeg (optional)
Preheat your waffle iron on high heat.
In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients until well combined.
Grease the waffle iron liberally with cooking spray. Pour the batter onto the iron. Let the batter set before closing the lid (about 1 minute).
Cook for 5 minutes or until your liking.
While the waffle is cooking, heat a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add the pecans, maple syrup and spices. Cook until the pecans are sticky- about 2-3 minutes.
Once the waffle is done cooking, topwith whatever you desire! I topped mine with the candied pecans, maple syrup, more pecan butter and a few chopped pecans.
