Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

vegan paleo pumpkin spice pancakesWhile it’s obvious Autumn has ended (so pumpkin pie isn’t exactly en vogue), I was brainstorming what could be a nutritious, vitamin-rich, low-carb breakfast recipe– and decided that pumpkin spice pancakes were the way to go. Per 1/2 cup serving, pumpkin contains 1g sodium, 2g fiber, 1g sugar..yet only 6g carbs — at only 25 calories.

Ingredients

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot flour
1/2 cup pumpkin purée, fresh or from a can
1 Tbsp flax meal
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp baking powder
3 stevia packets or see stevia conversion chart for equivalents
pinch of salt
coconut oil for frying

Method

Combine the almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, stevia extract, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, wisk the flax meal with 1 cup water to make a flax “egg”. When the mixture thickens, add the pumpkin puree and stir until mixed.

Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combied.

Grease the pan with cocount oil.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto the pan.

Once it bubbles, use a spatula to flip each pancake. Cook until golden brown (or more accurately orange-brown, because it’s pumpkin).

Continue until all the batter has been utilized.

    Hello. I am interested in making your pumpkin spice pancakes. My son has allergies and it has been so difficult to find a good recipe for egg free and paleo pancakes. I wanted to double check with you to make sure the measurements were correct for the cinnamon, ginger, and baking powder. It states a tablespoon but wondered if it was supposed to be teaspoon? A tablespoon seemed like a lot from ones I have made already. Thanks!

      Does this recipe call for 1 Tbsp cinnamon?

    Just made these this morning. So yummy! The batter was a little too runny, so I added a Tablespoon of coconut flour, let it sit for 5 min and it fixed it right up. Thanks for sharing! It was delicious!
