This time its a simple paleo pancake recipe. It has a slight pumpkin flavor and a really good texture. I whipped up a batch of these pancakes for J and I after I got home from the gym this morning. They are such a good breakfast because they are packed with protein, fiber, good fats, and lots of good things from the spices (cinnamon is so good for your body!) and the pumpkin.
I ate my pancakes with some pumpkin dip and these wonderful southern inspired cinnamon fried apples with pecans and coconut. J just wanted lots of butter on his pancakes and some fresh apples on the side.
The key to perfect paleo pancakes is to use a cast iron (or non-stick) skillet and let the pancakes cook longer than you would usually cook regular pancakes. They should cook about 4-6 minutes on the first side before flipping them.

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Silver Dollar Pancakes
(original recipe here)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons almond meal
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup coconut or almond milk (if your batter is a little too thick)
Whisk together the dry ingredients (coconut flour, almond meal, baking soda, spices and salt) until well combined.
In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients (eggs, pumpkin puree, vinegar, and oil) until well combined. Add milk if needed.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and melt some coconut oil, bacon grease, or ghee in the bottom of the skillet. When the skillet is hot spoon small scoops (about a tablespoon) of the batter into the skillet. Leave these to cook about 4-6 minutes before flipping, do not flip too early or you will have broken and messy pancakes. When cooked on the first side flip over and cook on the other side until golden brown.
Cinnamon Fried Apples
- 2 apples, cut into chunks (Granny Smith apples are wonderful for this recipe)
- 2 tablespoons organic butter or ghee
- 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add apples and saute for about a minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and saute until caramelized.
