Paleo Friendly Easy Pumpkin Pancakes

Easy Pumpkin Pancakes - Paleo Friendly

Paleo Friendly Easy Pumpkin Pancakes!  I am excited to share these with you today they are also dairy free and adaptable!  They can be made with whole wheat or a paleo flour blend depending on your families needs. I splurged this year (its not very expensive, but it also isn’t necessary) and bought this super cute pumpkin waffle/pancake maker from dash. You do not need to buy it for this recipe you can make them as regular pancakes or waffles.  

I love these paleo friendly easy pumpkin pancakes because:

  • They can be made with a paleo blend or a regular whole wheat flour
  • Are made in one bowl!
  • They are made with a few simple and healthy ingredients
  • Can be waffles or pancakes
  • Can be used for lunch as well (non-paleo version)!
With the leftover pancakes I sent my kids to school with breakfast for lunch. The Paleo flour has almond flour in it so you cannot send those.

If you do buy the dash maker I found it fun to make some grilled cheeses in it as well!

If you or your family members do not like pumpkin, but you want to buy the dash maker for festive pancakes you can try out my banana bread pancakes or my gluten free very berry vegan pancakes.

  1. Pancakes will be good for up to a week in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer:
    1. Cool pancakes completely before wrapping and freezing. To freeze, wrap securely in foil or freezer wrap, or place in freezer bags. Label all packages with the name of the recipe and the date. 
    2. Pancakes can be thawed completely at room temperature, or heat frozen pancakes in the microwave 
      • Place pancakes on a microwave-safe paper towel or plate. Microwave on HIGH about 30 seconds - 1 minute for each pancake
