Food Friday Featuring Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes!

Fall is definitely rolling in and its presence is obvious in my cooking. I think about settling in with warm, hearty meals showcasing the season’s foods and flavors. Today’s recipe does just that.  These gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free pancakes’ feature ingredient is pumpkin, one of the most fall-like flavors out there! A girlfriend of mine passed this recipe on to me and I am so excited to share it here.  Since I can’t resist I added a couple tablespoons of maple syrup to mine – not sugar free anymore but oh so delicious.



  • 4 eggs beaten
  • ½ cup of pumpkin puree
  • Optional 1-2 tbsp of coconut flour (to keep the consistency thicker)
  • 2 tbsp of butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Optional 2 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (1/2 tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp cloves, ¼ tsp allspice/nutmeg)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
