What makes this Pumpkin Pancake recipe Paleo Friendly?

Cassava flour is a great ingredient for making healthy homemade pancakes because it is gluten-free and paleo-friendly.

It’s also nut-free, which makes it a great alternative to one of my favorite paleo pancakes that contain almond flour.

So, if you or anyone in your family has a nut allergy, you’ll still be able to enjoy a fluffy stack of healthy homemade gluten-free pancakes! This article goes more in depth about the health benefits of cassava.

How to Sweeten Paleo Pancakes Without Adding Sugar

To keep the paleo and gluten-free pancakes sweet while being refined sugar-free, I replaced half of the pumpkin puree with ripe bananas.

According to this article, Bananas contain starches, and their starches turn to sugar as they ripen. So not only does it add sweetness, but it also adds some great nutritional value!

Of course, if you prefer an even sweeter taste you can add 1/4 cup of coconut sugar to your gluten-free pancake batter as well.

How to ‘Spice Up’ Pancakes

To give these healthy paleo pancakes a fall twist, I added pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom, and ginger).

This is my go-to spice combo of the season!

In the wintertime, I also like to add some extra ground ginger to create festive, seasonal gingerbread pancakes! 

There are so many ways you can whip up a pumpkin-flavored recipe, check out my sugar-free Sweet Potato Pie recipe for example.

And, of course, I highly recommend you giving these homemade fluffy paleo and gluten-free pumpkin pancakes ago!

How to Store Pumpkin Pancakes

Be sure to let the pancakes cool before you decide to store them. After cooled, you can choose to store in the fridge or freezer

Fridge: These pancakes will last 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave, toaster, or on a skillet on the stove until heated thoroughly.

Freezer: These pancakes will last for about 2-3 months in the freeze, when stored properly. Let thaw for about 20 minutes, and then you can reheat by any of the above options.
