Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes!'Tis the season for pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING, my friends. I love pumpkin. I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin spice lattes, etc. etc. If it's pumpkin, I'm going to eat it. Here's the may-jor issue I've been having with pumpkin recipes lately: they're all LOADED with sugar. Like, a ton of freaking sugar. Pumpkin is actually super healthy for you- it's really high in vitamins A & C, potassium, manganese, copper, riboflavin, and it's low in salt, cholesterol, & saturated fat. SUPER FOOD, PEOPLE! But when you cover it in sugar you're kind of making all those good things a moot point. So I've been on a mission to health-ify some pumpkin goodies. And make them paleo. And it's been a success so far!
These pancakes scream everything fall. Perfect Saturday morning breakfast (or like me, Thursday afternoon lunch ;)). Have your pumpkin and eat it too!

1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (make sure it's 100% pumpkin, no sugar added!)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tablespoon coconut milk (from the carton, not the can)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon coconut oil (can be firm, you're just gonna whisk it in)
pinch of kosher salt
(optional) hand-full of chopped walnuts
Step 1: Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Whisk together flour, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, milk, baking soda, honey, eggs, vanilla, oil, and salt.
Step 2: Pour batter onto skillet in about 1/4 cup sized pancakes. Flatten a lil bit with your spoon.
Step 3: Cook about 2 minutes, or until bottom is cooked through and flip. Cook an additional 2 minutes until they are cooked through. Serve & Enjoy!
Doesn't that one look like a jack-o-lantern face?! Serve with some protein, just do it. I had mine with sausage! :-D
I hope everyone has a great weekend! My Seminoles have a big 'ol game vs. Clemson tomorrow night! GO NOLES! :)
