Pumpkin Flax Paleo Pancakes!

by danielle on October 9, 2012

So a couple weeks ago I posted my coconut flax pancake recipe and one of the comments I got often was if you could swap the pumpkin! I changed some things around to make a perfect Paleo pumpkin pancake recipe! This recipe is 100% Paleo and gluten and is a great way to change up your breakfast especially during the Fall season!

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbs. coconut flour
  • 2 tbs. flaxseed
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl combine all of your ingredients starting with the dry and adding in the wet last.
  2. Combine all ingredients well and let sit 2 minutes or so.
  3. Heat a skillet with olive oil spray and then form your pancakes into 4 medium to small size pancakes.
  4. Cook until the edges start to curl up and then flip, cooking the other side.
  5. Top with coconut butter and enjoy!!!!

I wish I had the patience to make pancakes more often….these sound and look delicious. My favorite pancake “flavor” is blueberry. Lots and lots of blueberries in the pancakes. Yum!

Thanks Michelle! Unless I’m making them for the blog I don’t usually make them either and if I do, they end up burnt ;)

LOVE THIS! I can’t tell you enough how much I do love every recipe you post. Pancakes are awesome and pumpkin is even better, so the mixing the two is a no-brainer for an unbelievable meal. I go through a minimum of 4 cans a week of pumpkin!

I really wish I was more willing to cook in the mornings :( Things like pancakes and waffles sound so good, but way too labor intensive… cereal is more or less as much as I can do :lol: I do love a good pancake, though… especially the buttermilk kind topped with maple syrup. Yum.

This is why I love breakfast for dinner :) So much easier to cook it at night!

Thanks Meg! I think the pumpkin made them extra fluffy!

These look so fluffy! I wish I had more time in the morning to make breakfasts lol I usually opt for easier options like yogurt

Me too but they work great for lunch or dinner too!

ya know I never really liked pancakes but I see all these pancakes popping up lately and am starting to think maybe I should give them another chance!

Hahaha I think you might need to!

I need to bring back flax seeds into my life! I’ve been too obsessed with chia seeds. These look great!

Reply

danielle October 9, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I love both! You could easily add chia seeds to these too!

mmmm i love blueberry pancakes!! i also love chocolate chip blueberry pancakes haha but thats obvious! love this recipe! i need to get a new bag of coconut flour but when i use too much of it my stomach hurts! wahh i need to learn moderation when it comes to delicious things hahh

Reply

danielle October 9, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Never tried chocolate chip blueberry pancakes but I think I need to try them! Interesting that too much coconut flour bothers you! I struggle with the moderation thing too ;)

Caitlin October 9, 2012 at 4:09 pm

These look really good! I don’t eat pancakes/waffles a lot because they tend to make me too sleepy in the morning and drain me of the energy I need to tackle the day. However, whenever I do have them I make sure they’re special and have a unique flavor like peanut butter, pumpkin, coconut, or banana involved!

Reply

danielle October 9, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Me too! They’re not a typical breakfast for me but once in a while they’re awesome!

Reply

Katie October 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm

These look so good! You have been coming up with lots of good recipes!

<3 Happy Weekend!

I absolutely loved your coconut flax pancakes, so I’m pretty sure that I will love these too! Pumpkin or blueberry banana is my favorite pancake flavor. I love topping pancakes with nutbutter and fruit.

Mmm pumpkin pancakes are one of my favourite pancake flavours! They’re tied with banana pancakes haha. I can’t choose between them!

Reply

Hard choice!! I love banana too!

I LOVE pancakes! My favorite topping is probably fresh fruit! Or real maple syrup. My husband and I went back to Vermont this summer and I finally tried some real maple syrup-I am hooked now. I had no idea how much better it is that the fake and sugary syrups that I had growing up!

Reply

danielle October 10, 2012 at 4:30 pm

I’ve actually never had real maple syrup! Maybe I shouldn’t try it cause then I’d be hooked too!

I love pumpkin and banana walnut pancakes made with almond flour topped with honey! Just thinking about pancakes is making me hungry! :)

Reply

danielle October 10, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Hahaha me too! All this talk about them is making me want them!
