Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

So my mother-in-law and sister-in-law are both trying to eat healthier and have embarked on a sort of Paleo-style diet. So they inspired me to make these pancakes for dinner last night. I modified the recipe slightly and they turned out delicious! My picky toddler even ate them! I will say though have patience while they cook, because they are grain-free they take awhile to cook. I recommend cooking them on medium heat, nothing higher. Enjoy!

**Note: I doubled this recipe and it was enough for me and Matt.. and Lucy snuck some bites

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed (make sure it is ground and not whole seeds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda or baking powder (optional, but give pancakes more fluff)
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon all spice (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 1 packet stevia (optional for sweetness. if adding honey or syrup as a topping, this really isn't needed) (I omitted this and squeezed some honey in the batter instead)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  • Heat greased skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake.
  • When pancake is cooked along sides and bottom and air bubbles on top have popped; gently flip pancakes. It may be helpful to use two flippers.
