Pumpkin Spice Waffle Bites: bite sized, pop-able breakfast treat!

I don’t make waffles very often. At least not often enough!

Yes, I have a belgian waffle maker, but doesn’t every food blogger? I mean seriously, my cabinets are overflowing with donut pans, muffin top pans, twinkie pans, mini muffin pans, cupcake pans…don’t forget all the shaped brownie pans (hearts, stars, silicone squares). It’s a bit ridiculous. #firstworldproblems

Must I list all my small appliances too?

Well, last year I decided it was a necessity that my family own a belgian waffle maker. (I purchased this Hamilton Beach waffle maker ). My kids love going to hotels that allow them to make these delicious fluffy waffles. So of course they would want these at home right?

Well, only if mom makes the batter. And of course they all have to be awake and hungry for waffles at the same time. Granted, I have put them in the freezer after cooking and they are great popped in the toaster.

You know what makes my kids even happier though? Bite sized food. I’m not talking about toddlers here…I’m talking big kids. My kids are 10, 12, 15,17. And they want bite sized food.

I totally get it though, you just pop it in your mouth. No cutting (cause that’s work). No spreading on butter (cause that’s work). No plates (cause you would have to get one out of the cabinet….and put it in the dishwasher when you are done and that’s work.)

Alright alright….I’m not raising lazy kids. I hope. I’m raising kids who love bite sized food, HEHE. Let’s be clear.

And what’s better this time of year than pumpkin spice Waffle Bites? One big plate of these did not last long in our house! I used BAILEYS® Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer to give them a little extra boost of Pumpkin flavor! ENJOY!!

Pumpkin Spice Waffle Bites

Yield: 4-5 dozen

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

For the waffle bites:

  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup BAILEYS® Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup BAILEYS® Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer nutmeg, for garnish

Directions:

  1. In a clean and dry mixing bowl, using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff (about 2-3 minutes). Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt and ginger. Mix until combined. Add coffee creamer, egg yolks and pumpkin. Beat until fully combined.
  3. Fold in stiff egg whites, mixing gently just until blended.
  4. Heat Belgian Waffle Iron on medium high. Spray with non-stick baking spray, if necessary.
  5. Drop batter by 1 Tbsp scoop onto waffle iron. Close iron and cook for about 2 1/2-3 minutes, until browned on the outside with a slight crisp. Remove from waffle iron and cool on wire rack. Repeat until all batter has been used.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and coffee creamer until smooth. Dip tops of each cooled waffle bite into glaze and place on a wire rack. Sprinkle immediately with a pinch of nutmeg. Repeat until all waffle bites are glazed. Allow glaze to set about 15 minutes. ENJOY.

    A twinkie pan?! That’s a thing? Oh my goodness. I want it so badly now, but my husband might lose it if I keep buying more pans.
    Love the idea of waffle bites! I can see myself popping quite a few of those into my mouth. And a great flavor idea, too!

  6. Love these! Super cute idea!

  7. As if I need a reason to consume some Baileys coffee creamer but bite size snacks are just a bonus! Side note…I use to make mini pancakes all the time (read that as: still do) because they are more fun to eat! So your kids are on to something….

  8. I cannot get over how adorable and fun these are. And obviously delicious-looking, too. Next time we do a potluck breakfast at work, I’m so bringing these!!

  9. SO CUTE! And creative, clever, and just….I want! Pinned!

  10. Loooove these cute little bites!

  11. Bite sized waffles are def the way to go!

  12. I really need to convince my husband that we need a Belgian waffle maker… Maybe showing him this recipe will do it? I love how you made these bite sized and covered them in glaze! And you pulled out that cute spoon again…

  13. These are the cutest waffles ever – I really need to pull my waffle iron out of storage!

  14. That glaze is killing me softly. Gorgeous!

  15. I’m so excited to try this, looks amazing!!

  16. Love the use of bailey’s creamer in this and I just resist anything bite sized 🙂

  17. These are adorable and look delicious! I could eat a bunch 🙂

  18. Bite sized food really is the best…I don’t know why, but it just tastes better. Your kids definitely are on to something…well, that and not having to exert much energy to enjoy these 😉 I am seriously in love with the glaze on these waffle bites. I cannot wait to try these with our new waffle plates. Yes, I am a food blogger that just very recently bought a waffle iron.

  19. Ahhh, mini waffles! Love it! I threw my belgian waffle maker out in a fit of “OMG TOO MUCH STUFF IN MY HOUSE!” and I’ve regretted it ever since. I need to get a new one soon.

  20. What a fun new way to enjoy waffles! Although I gotta say, anything covered in glaze is going to get my vote 🙂

  21. God, I need a waffle maker just to make these!

  23. Sad to say that as a food blogger I do not own a waffle maker:( I did at one point but like you I had too many baking pans and small appliances so I had to let go of something. My hubby and I don’t eat waffles (or anything fun – we are mostly paleo now) but my kids still eat them. I have often broken down and bought the toaster waffles (if you can call them that) and they are starting to hate those. I love this idea because my kids, 11 and 9 love bite sized food as well. Mine even prefer to eat them on paper plates so there is not mess to wash. Thanks for the recipe and the idea!!!

    Made these for a office holiday breakfast using my mini waffle maker. The dough was very thick and almost impossible to “fold in” the egg whites. The glaze was also thick and not as light in color as pictured. Wondered where I went wrong? Love the concept and hope to make these again after some improvements.

  25. I really like where you’re going with these bite sized waffles. I am definitely going to try them! My kids will love them as the already eat bite size pancakes. I read your post to my husband and he laughed and commented that that sounded like all the stuff we have in our kitchen cabinets!
