Make these fluffy pumpkin protein waffles with two healthy scoops of collagen!
Kick-off pumpkin season with warm, gluten-free waffles you can serve for breakfast or dessert! These nutritious waffles are naturally sweetened with bananas and pumpkin purée, and they have extra staying powder thanks to protein-rich collagen sourced from grass-fed beef.
Key Ingredients For A Flawless Waffle Batter
To make the batter for these pumpkin protein waffles, we start with soaked cashews for a nice creamy base. Then we add mashed banana for sweetness, and a combination of pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice to really enhance those fall flavors.

Next, we toss in a bit of coconut flour to add some density and add eggs to hold everything together. The end result is a smooth, thick batter ready to be poured into the hot waffle maker!
Here’s Why You’ll Want To Add Collagen
As a bonus, we sneak in a little grass-fed collagen to help nourish your gut. Collagen is full of health benefits and can help improve digestion, relieve joint pain, and prevent bone loss, just to name a few.
Fortunately, collagen easily dissolves into the batter so that you can’t even taste it. Plus, it works to slightly thicken the batter so that it doesn’t stick to the waffle iron.
A Quick Note On Waffle Makers
Most waffle irons come with a light to let you know when the batter is done cooking. However, it’s usually not very accurate and the batter tends to require more time to fully heat on the inside.
The best way to ensure the waffles cook to perfection is to check for steam coming out of the waffle iron. This happens after you pour the batter into the heated machine and close the lid. When the steam stops, it’s time to remove your waffle and enjoy!
Helpful Tips For Getting Started:
- Double-up and freeze for later. You can stash the cooked waffles in the freezer and enjoy them throughout the week. Just let them thaw for five minutes before reheating in the oven or toaster.
- Swap out the mashed banana for applesauce. You can use equal amounts interchangeably – both taste just as great!
- Load up on all the best toppings. Try other add-ons like butter, your favorite jam, chopped almonds, or even pistachios.
