Molasses Pecan Waffles are the perfect fall breakfast. Fluffy and sweet waffles are filled with comforting flavors like cinnamon, molasses, and crunchy pecans.
Fall is here, and so are my favorite flavors. These molasses pecan waffles are my new favorite fall breakfast. They’re filled with crunchy pecans, and classic, comforting flavors like molasses and cinnamon. The best part is the batter comes together in just minutes.
How many waffles will this recipe make? Well, it depends on what type of waffle maker you own. I used my Oster Belgian Waffle Maker (affiliate link), and set it to medium heat. I scooped about 2/3 of a cup into the center of the waffle iron, covering about 3/4 of the waffle iron and allowing for some spreading to occur.
Using a Belgian waffle maker, I made four large waffles. Using a different style waffle iron, you may make five.
Top your waffles with the classic maple syrup. Or, dust with powdered sugar. Sprinkle with pecans, chocolate chips, or even fresh fruit.
