Pumpkin Pancakes (Coconut Flour)

This pancake recipe is very high in protein and low in carbs, meaning that it won’t raise your blood sugar levels (unless topping it with maple syrup or honey), and it will keep you going strong throughout the morning.  They are gorgeously sweet and the spices used enhance the taste of pumpkin.   The pumpkin puree can be made ahead or over night.  Boil 100g pumpkin with a bit of water and blend into a puree. Voila! Yummy, tell me more Diva.. Or cheat, and use the canned pumpkin puree…but used unsweetened!  The pancakes are very fragile to handle so I would advise to cook them in small amounts otherwise they will break when you flip them.  Make “mini” pancakes and they should keep their shape better.

  1. I was quite apprehensive about trying these since the last coconut flour based recipe was quite lackluster but these were amazing. 10/10
