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 pumpkin pancake recipe to take an inexpensive ingredient (canned pumpkin) and turn it into something delicious.
- 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: 1-2 tablespoons VANILLA or CINNAMON infused sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- 1/8 teaspoon allspice/nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch salt
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.

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.
