Is there anything more perfect than a warm stack of Grain-Free Pumpkin Pancakes drizzled with pure maple syrup and served with hot coffee on a brisk morning?

I walked into Sprouts earlier this week and nearly ran smack into a big display of pumpkin flavored novelties. There were boxes of pumpkin spice cake mix, pumpkin flavored marshmallows, pumpkin cookies and – you guessed it – bags of Pumpkin Pancake Mix. It all looked so festive and fun!

Too bad all of the items were made with refined sugars and grains 🙁

So I went home and a mixed up my own recipe for Grain-Free Pumpkin Pancakes — and all was good with the world 🙂

    I tried to make these pumpkin pancakes, and the batter came out very thick. They refused to bubble on the griddle. I ended up having to finish cooking them in the oven. Is a liquid missing from your recipe, by any chance?

      HI Deanna,
      It’s important that all the ingredients are blended in a food processor, and once you place the batter on the griddle spread it to create the ideal thickness. There’s no need for liquid added but if you’d like to add a little melted coconut oil that would be fine. Happy Cooking!
