Pecan Waffle Recipe

A pecan waffle is a delectable breakfast dish that combines the deliciousness of waffles with the nutty flavour of pecans. Made with a batter that includes a mixture of flour, eggs, milk, and butter, these waffles are cooked until golden and crispy on the outside, but soft and fluffy on the inside. 

Ready to start cooking? Let’s unwrap the ingredients: 


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups buttermilk, room temperature
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • Sugar-Free Caramel Pecan Syrup

How to make fluffy pecan waffle recipe

  1. Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk until combined.     
  4. Add the melted butter and whisk to combine.    
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined - do not overmix it! Fold in the pecans until evenly distributed throughout the batter.    
  6. Grease your waffle iron with some cooking spray or vegetable oil then pour about ¾ cup of batter onto each waffle pocket (or more if your waffle maker requires it). Close the lid and cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp on both sides (cooking time will vary according to your waffle maker).   
  7. Serve immediately with warm Sugar-Free Caramel Pecan Syrup for a delicious brunch treat! Enjoy!


Is there a healthier option? 

Yes, you just have to replace the ingredients! For example, you could replace the all-purpose flour with almond, oat, or coconut flour. Additionally, refined sugar can be replaced with your favourite sugar-free sweetener, and the butter can be substituted for clarified butter. You make the rules!
