Healthiest Pancakes Ever
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes are a super tasty breakfast that’s perfect any time of year! The pumpkin flavor is subtle, so it’s not like you’re eating a piece of pumpkin pie… However, the flavor the pumpkin gives with the helps of pie spice and cinnamon is super delicious and incredibly inviting. Get ready to “fall” in love with these healthy paleo pancakes!
- Low-carb because there’s no grains! I used pumpkin puree and coconut flour to make the base of the pancakes.
- Gluten-free because since there’s no flour, there’s no wheat!
- Low-sugar because there’s only 1 tbsp. of maple syrup in the whole recipe!
- You can even make them sugar-free by leaving out the maple syrup!
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes
The main reason I made them nut-free is because I was eating so many nuts on a grain-free paleo diet! Since you avoid normal flours when you go grain-free, almond flour is an easy choice for a substitute. BUT, that means so many paleo recipes are nut-based! And trust me, it’s definitely possible to eat too much of a good thing. These allergy-friendly pancakes are also low-carb! To keep it super simple, we replace the flour with coconut flour, and the only other ingredients you need are pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, spices, and baking soda.
Paleo Pumpkin PancakesPrint This
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 3 tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup (optional, but recommended)
- 1 tsp. each vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Heat a pan with coconut or avocado oil. When the pan is nice and hot, pour the pancake batter on the pan – smaller pancakes are much easier to flip.
- Cook the pancakes until the bottoms are brown and tiny bubbles start to appear on the top – patience is very important.
- Flip the pancakes, then cook the other side until the bottom is brown and the pancakes are done in the center. Serve with your favorite pancake toppings, enjoy!
I love extra cinnamon in my pancakes, so I add more like 1 tbsp. than 1 tsp. Also, leftovers freeze well wrapped in plastic. Simply toast a few for an easy breakfast without having to cook!
