Gluten Free & Paleo Pumpkin Pancake Recipe

This Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes recipe is another from the book, Practical Paleo, that our family is enjoying these days. Mine turn out very thin, almost like crepes. In fact, I like to roll mine up and eat them like this.

The batter is quite simple, basically egg and pumpkin with vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice for flavor, a bit of baking soda, and maple syrup for sweetener. YUM!

  1. I just listened to Dian Sanfillipo on the Healthy Life Summit on Monday. It will have to look for her book to try out some of the recipes.

  2. Yum! These were easy to make and cooked easily as well. If you’re looking for moist, crepe-like pancakes these are it. I used pumpkin puree from a carton, so maybe this made a difference in how moist these pancakes turned out, but next time I make them, I will try adding 1-2 Tablespoons coconut flour. These would be great topped with sliced strawberries and lightly drizzled with maple syrup. I thought they tasted great plain though. The cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice lend a subtle sweetness.

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe. I just made these pancakes and they were absolutely ‘Deeelish’! Shabbat Shalom 🙂

  4. Question: what do you use for pumpkin? I assume from one of the comments that it’s a pre-made puree you can buy on the shelf? Any recommendations on brand? The only processed pumpkin i know of is Libby’s and that doesn’t strike me as being very healthy. Or if it’s fresh pumpkin, what are the preparation directions? Thanks so much for your help; we’re complete newbies to Paleo.
