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!
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes printer-friendly recipe
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or honey
1 tablespoon walnut oil (plus more for oiling the griddle)
1/4 cup to 1/3 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed meal
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Heat griddle to 350 degrees F (or heat a skillet over medium heat).
- Combine the pumpkin, eggs, maple syrup or honey, walnut oil, milk and vinegar or lemon juice in a large bowl. Mix well. Add the almond flour, flax, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, baking soda and salt and stir until well combined. Batter will be thick.
- Lightly oil griddle or skillet surface with walnut oil. Pour batter onto griddle using an 1/8 cup measure or a heaping tablespoon. Pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles pop on surface of pancake. Continue cooking other side until golden brown.
