Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree - bake or boil 230 g of pumpkin for 1/2 cup
  • 2 large pastured eggs
  • 1 scoop of Vanilla Noway 
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed or LSA mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, coriander, start anise, ginger, nutmeg, turmeric
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (melted) - for cooking

Method:

  1. Combine dry ingredients together ( gluten free flour, flax seed or LSA mix, and spices)
  2. Whisk the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: eggs, coconut oil and pumpkin puree.
  3. Slowly add the dry mix to the wet mix until the ingredients are well combined.
  4. Heat a pan with the coconut oil or organic butter over MEDIUM-LOW heat. Spoon the batter into the pan in whatever size you wish, I used a 1/4 cup

Use a spoon to flatten and shape the batter to about 1/3 inch. They will not bubble up a lot like regular pancakes so keep your eyes on them until they are done, its about 30 - 40 seconds a side. Flip them over to the other side when the bottom is golden brown.

Serve with your choice of topping, brazil nuts, coconut yogurt, berries, cherries, pure maple syrup or just enjoy the pumpkin pancakes by themselves, my kids absolutely love these.
