Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes
I love pancakes. They are such a simple yet filling breakfast options. You can top these gluten free pumpkin pancakes with anything from fruit or syrup, to nut butters and honey. I feel like the options are limitless. Pancakes can be made with just about any fruit or spice. Good old fashioned buttermilk pancakes will always be my favorite, but this summer I’ve been craving pumpkin pancakes.
This gluten free pumpkin pancakes recipe is super simple to make and it only uses a few ingredients. Pumpkin puree (not pie filling) is the star of this recipe and you can use canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree.
I keep checking the calendar to see if it’s fall yet. They I realized, pumpkin doesn’t have to be a seasonal ingredient. You can use pumpkin to make many wonderful dishes all year long.
I do limit my pumpkin pie consumption to winter. But during the spring and summer months, I like to enjoy gluten free pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cheesecake (in my cookbook), and homemade pumpkin spice lattes.
Pumpkin has many health benefits; it is packed with vitamin A, fiber, and the antioxidant beta-carotene. I don’t necessarily eat pumpkin goodies for the healthy benefits though. I think pumpkin treats are out of this world good and I will rarely pass up the opportunity to enjoy something made with pumpkin.
