Preheat waffle iron. Prepare flax egg by combining water and flaxseed in a large bowl and letting rest for 5 minutes.
Add molasses, pumpkin puree, oil, brown sugar and whisk. Add almond milk and stir once more.
Add flour, baking powder and spices to a sifter and sift over wet ingredients. Stir until just combined. Ideally, let batter rest for 5 minutes before cooking.
Once preheated, generously spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and spoon about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the center of the iron and cook according to your machine's instructions. I like to set mine to the darkest setting so it gets extra crispy.
Once done, remove and place on cooling rack to let steam roll of and crisp up a bit. Serve warm with vegan butter (such as Earth Balance) and maple syrup, or whatever toppings you desire.
*If you don't have whole wheat pastry flour, I would recommend using 3/4 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. *Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
