When fall rolls around, it seems only natural to want to make as many recipes as possible that use pumpkin! This is a quick and easy way to take an inexpensive ingredient (canned pumpkin) and turn it into something delicious.

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 20 minutes
YIELD: Approximately 8 small pancakes or 2 servings.

ingredients

  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    You may use canned, boxed, or fresh. The recipe works just-right with canned and yields a delicate pancake.
  • optional: 1-2 Tbsp of coconut flour
    To keep the consistency a bit thicker/firmer if you use boxed, or freshly cooked and strained pumpkin, you may need the coconut flour. If you use it, I recommend sifting it into the wet ingredients slowly to combine it well.
  • 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • optional: 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
    Leave this out if you are eating these while on the 21-Day Sugar Detox!
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    or

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt

preparation

  • Whisk the eggs, canned pumpkin, pure vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup together. Sift the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and baking soda into the wet ingredients.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, mix the butter into the batter.
  • Grease the skillet and spoon the batter into the skillet to make pancakes of your desired size. When a few bubbles appear, flip the pancakes once to finish cooking.
  • Serve with grass-fed butter and cinnamon or sliced bananas.

change it up

  • Instead of adding maple syrup to sweeten this recipe, try adding a mashed, whole ripe banana to the mixture. If you add a banana, the yield will increase.
