Grain Free Give Me Everyday Coconut Pumpkin Pancakes

breakfast - coconut pumpkin pancakes grain free

Who knew that there would be a day where pancakes could be gluten free, dairy free and grain free! I wish I could take credit for developing this recipe, but I can’t. The recipe left some open ended options to do things so I’ll let you know what I did to produce this not only this normal looking pancake – but a delicious tasting pancake too!

Coconut Pumpkin Pancakes

recipe from Practical Paleo Book – with a few notes from how I did them)
Makes 8 small pancakes – 2 servings


4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup pumpkin puree, canned or fresh (I used organic canned)
1 – 2 tbsp of coconut flour, optional (I used 2 tbsp)
2 tbsp of butter or coconut oil, melted (I used coconut oil – and actually omitted it from the recipe, using it only for cooking)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup or none (I’ve used 1/2 tsp stevia, and omitted all entirely)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg)
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt 

1. Whisk the eggs, pumpkin, pure vanilla extract and sweetener of choice
2. Sift the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and baking soda into the wet ingredients
3. Melt the oil in a skillet until melted and pour into the batter (I actually forgot to add this to the recipe and it was fine. I just used it to cook the pancakes)
4. Grease a skillet with either butter or coconut oil (I used coconut oil) and use a 1/4 cup for the batter for each pancake – smaller pancakes work best. Flip when bubbles start appearing.

Serve with fresh fruit or grass fed butter – I served mine with 100% maple syrup and I’ve done banana slices too. YUM!
