With the holidays quickly approaching and summer far behind us it's time to ditch our healthy diets for the warm comfort foods of fall, right? Wrong. Just because you add a few layers to your outfit does not mean you have to add a few pounds this season.
These paleo pumpkin pancakes are the perfect breakfast for a cozy fall morning, and you won't regret eating them later.
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes
- Prep Time:10 mins
- Cook Time:20 mins
- Total Time:30 mins
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup optional
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Almond flower to make the pancakes thicker optional
Add the eggs, canned pumpkin, maple syrup, and coconut oil to the bowl and whisk them together.
Add the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and chia seeds to the same bowl.
Mix it all together! If you want to add almond flower to your pancakes, you can add it in this step.
Grease your pan with butter or coconut oil (but we all know coconut anything is always better). Pour the batter on the pan and watch the magic happen. Flip the pancakes when you see small bubbles starting to form.
Finally, flip those flapjacks off your pan and onto your plate and enjoy the heck out of these perfectly fall and perfectly pumpkin pancakes! I like to heat up whatever fresh fruit I have on my pan and serve it on top of my pancakes.
These Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes are the epitome of health. The paleo diet itself is designed to be low in carbohydrates, salt and sugar, which are all things we should be eating in moderation anyway. Now you can add this to your list of pumpkin recipes that make your tastebuds praise the heavens that fall has finally arrived.
