Pumpkin Paleo Pancakes with Almond Butter, Banana, and Honey

These are just toooo good to not share.

The base of these pancakes is egg and pumpkin.  There is no flour in them.  Before you venture on thinking you can not cheat on your flour-filled pancakes… believe me when I tell you they are worth a try.  I love them, my kids love them, they are guilt free, and they are made from eggs without tasting like eggs!  That is kind of a win when you aren’t feeling like eating eggs one morning, but want the health benefits from them.

You can also substitute the pumpkin with banana, but we love the pumpkin in our house (even if it is spring!)

This recipe makes enough for 1 person.  Maybe a second person if you are loading with toppings.  I usually double this recipe for me and my 2 young kids and it’s the perfect amount.

 

Here’s the ingredients for your pancakes:

Whisk your eggs in a bowl, then whisk in pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, and honey.

**if you are planning to top with honey/bananas, fruit, etc… you may not need the honey in them too… it makes them just the right sweetness if you’re eating them plain or topping with some nut butter

Mix batter until the consistency is even

Use coconut oil to fry these babies up.

Melt coconut oil in a pan.  Use a ¼ C. measuring cup to measure out each pancake.  Wait until a few bubbles appear and flip them to cook the other side.

 

Okay… so now is the fun part!  The toppings!

You can top with whatever you are feeling…   Buuuuttt… this topping is amaaaaaaazing!

Put your desired amount of almond butter (could use peanut butter here too) in the microwave in increments of 10 seconds until it is softened.  Smear that on each pancake!

Then slice your banana and top

Then drizzle honey on there!

Umm…. Can we say A-maz-ING!

2 eggs

1/4 C. canned pumpkin (Can sub 1/2 a mashed banana here is you want)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. baking soda (I do a “pinch” of baking soda)

1 tsp. honey (optional)

Whisk your eggs in a bowl, then whisk in pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, and honey.  Mix until the consistency is even.  Once you have an even consistency, melt coconut oil in a pan.  Use a ¼ C. measuring cup to measure out each pancake and fry.  Wait until a few bubbles appear and flip them to cook the other side.

Topping:

1 tbsp almond butter melt in microwave in increments of 10 seconds until softened. Spread on each pancake ( can sub peanut butter here if you wish)

½ sliced banana strategically placed 😉

1 tbsp honey drizzled over it all

Other topping options: plain, cinnamon, honey, almond butter, peanut butter, maple syrup, banana, strawberries, blueberries, or any fruit.
