Paleo Pumpkin Walnut Pancakes

It has literally been years, decades maybe, since I have eaten anything that even remotely resembled a pancake. Maybe it’s the sudden and drastic change in temperature that I now find myself craving some sort of comfort food. Below is the recipe I adapted from Wellness Mama to help satisfy my hankering for pancakes.

pancake 1

Ingredients: 

2 eggs

1/4 cup of pumpkin purée ( I used Farmer’s Market brand from Whole Foods)

1 Tbs of walnuts

1/8-1/4 tsp of cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I used 1/4th tsp)

Small pinch of sea salt

1/2 cup of your favorite berries (I used blackberries)

Coconut oil

Grass-fed butter if tolerated

Directions:

1. Whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, cinnamon and small pinch of sea salt

2. Add in walnuts and whisk a few more times

3. Warm pan over medium high heat (I used a cast iron skillet).

4. Place a Tbs of coconut oil in the pan making sure to cover the bottom.

5. Place 2 Tbs of batter in the pan and cook until golden brown.

6. Flip the pancake over and brown the other side.

7. Place pancake on a plate. If you can tolerate butter, I placed a small pat of butter on each pancake to melt while I made the next one.

8. Makes about 5 small pancakes.

9. Top with your favorite berries.

Prep time: 5-7 minutes, Cook time: 10 minutes, Total time: 15-17 minutes

Verdict: 

It was pretty good and I ate the whole stack! I did miss a bit of the sweetness of a traditional pancake so I think the next time I make this recipe, I will blend in a 1/3rd of a banana or so.

Enjoy!
