Pumpkin Pancakes (Grain-Free)


These pumpkin pancakes are a tasty addition to your Fall brunch menu.

Loaded with protein and fiber, these pancakes won’t spike your blood sugar like the traditional versions made with white flour and sugar. Though they aren’t properly combined, they are a definite upgrade from the standard short stack, and taste even better.

With an added punch of vitamins, and the rich flavor of Fall, these pancakes are sure to be a hit with the whole family!

Grain-Free Pumpkin Pancakes
serves 2

Adapted from this recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 whole eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon honey, or stevia to taste

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheet, forming about 4 pancakes per baking sheet. (I use two pans, to bake them all at once!)

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the pancakes are fluffy and golden. No need to oil a frying pan, and no need for flipping. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Serve warm, with pure maple syrup or homemade Maple Pecan Glaze.

Do you know of any reason that my pancakes turned green as they cooled? They taste great – but don’t understand the green! I used a bit of coconut sugar for sweetner and sunbutter instead of almond butter.

Oops – just read your comment that sunbutter mixed with baking soda causes the green. Sorry!!! I think I will try the baking next time. They tast great, tho!!!

Just made these. I didnt have almond butter so subbed almond flour by adding 30% extra by volume. Left out the honey.
When they were done tried them with chives for savoury and honey and strawberries for sweet.
Superb!!! So yummy.
Thanks!!

Just made these for bfast this morn! I read all the glorious comments & raves about this recipe.. mine did not turn out so great :/ I put all the ingredients in my blender, so it was super fast & easy to make the batter. I used 2 drops of vanilla stevia, but I felt like it really needed a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors. Mine were bland & not fluffy.. which could have also been from my baking soda that I pulled from the freezer? I might try making these on a griddle pan next time. On another note, the Maple Pecan Glaze is AMAZING!! Seriously, its SO GOOD that I ate 3 pancakes anyways, just to have a carrier for the glaze!! I used walnuts instead of pecans just because that’s what I had on hand. SUPER YUM & will be looking for other things to use that glaze on! Thank you, Megan & everyone else for sharing your experiences 🙂

Just want to warn people that if they sub the almond butter for sunbutter, the cookies will turn bright forest green on the inside. I was kind of freaked out by it and didn’t eat any until I checked it out, and according to these guys = http://www.earthmother.org/2007/12/12/vegan-cookies-turned-green/, it’s safe, it’s just a chemical reaction of the baking soda mixing with the sunbutter. Now that I know it’s safe, I will eat some for my breakfast tomorrow.

Can I replace almond butter with coconut oil or just simple butter?
