Another Day, Another Pumpkin Pancake Recipe

paleo pumpkin pancakes made with almond flour

I recently shared with you my Pumpkin Oat Pancakes recipe. I figured, while I'm at it, I may as well make up a Paleo version of pumpkin pancakes! These are a lot like my Paleo Banana Pancakes. I'm not on a strictly Paleo diet (I eat oats and dairy, oh, and then there's the booze.....), but I wanted to create something for people who don't eat any grains. These pancakes are dairy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, and grain-free. I'm surpised they even exist! I hope my Paleo friends like them. I know I do.

Just an FYI, I usually don't use that much syrup on my pancakes, but photography dictated copious amounts!
