Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes - Perfect Fall Breakfast by LBT

One of the hardest things for me to 'give up' were pancakes! I still melt a little when I smell pancakes from Austin Java or Magnolia Cafe.
Luckily I found the perfect way to settle my pancake craving.

These are easy to make and taste surprisingly like the "real thing".

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes:

  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce (careful!!! make sure it's apples only)

Step 1: Put all the ingredients in one bowl.
Step 2: Mix thoroughly. A whisk works well and 1,2,3 it all comes together in a thick, creamy batter!
Step 3: Drop batter into a medium hot pan with a touch of coconut oil and cook about 3 minutes on each side.

I enjoyed the pancakes with some an egg and spinach scramble. Oh and of course coffee!

  1. I had some trouble with consistency and flipping them..I am new to paleo cooking. Any suggestions? PS the pumpkin pancake "crumble" was delicious any way!

  2. These look so good! I've made pumpkin pancakes with almond meal before, but not using almond butter as the base! Definitely going to try these!

    This blog is pretty awesome! I'm looking forward to lots of delicious recipes!

  3. Made these this morning! They were really good- I added a bit of baking powder to make them a little fluffier.
