This easy Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes recipe is gluten free and dairy free. These pancakes are light and fluffy and are healthier than your usual breakfast pancakes as they’re made with coconut flour and almond flour and sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.
This time of year, we start thinking about pumpkin, but unfortunately most pumpkin treats are loaded with sugar and other nasty things. The good news is that pumpkin is really good for you as it’s one of the richest sources of carotenoids, specifically beta-carotene, They key is to find a way to add it to your diet without all the unhealthy additives.
I really was looking forward to creating a healthy fall pumpkin treat and first attempted some low-carb pumpkin cookies and muffins, but they bombed–working with almond and coconut flour can be tricky. I’ve been working on this pancake recipe for a while, and it takes a bit more eggy than regular pancakes but is still tasty. The pumpkin and spices add lots of comforting fall flavor.
Optional add-ins are fresh berries or mini-chocolate chips.
