Keto Pumpkin Pancakes For Breakfast
I love making pancakes, waffles, chaffles, chia pudding to enjoy for breakfast with my family. With the weather slowly chilling, I started making tons of comforting pumpkin spiced recipes. This is our favorite flourless pumpkin pancakes recipe that’s incredibly delicious, and can’t wait to make it again.
To make these pancakes, you’ll need pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. You can either get canned pumpkin or roast pumpkin at home to make it from scratch.
Keto Pumpkin Pancakes Ingredients
To make these delicious low carb pumpkin pancakes, you’ll need a few basic ingredients, and in less than 30 minutes you’ll enjoy a fabulous fall treat.
Here are the wet and dry ingredients:
- Eggs – large eggs at room temperature to help everything bind together.
- Sweetener – I used my favorite granulated sweeteners such as Erythritol or Monk Fruit.
- Pumpkin puree – I love using homemade pumpkin puree, but I also choose canned pumpkin puree out of convenience.
- Butter – to make dairy-free pumpkin pancakes, replace with coconut oil.
- Almond flour – choose an extra fine almond flour, or replace it with hazelnut flour.
- Coconut flour – to get that extra fluffy pancake texture without using regular wheat flour I use a combo of almond flour and coconut flour.
- Almond milk – unsweetened
- Pumpkin spice – my homemade pumpkin pie spice is super fragrant and inexpensive to make.
- Baking powder – makes the pancakes ultra fluffy.
- Cooking spray or ghee
How to Make Keto Pumpkin Pancakes?
There are a few tricks for making the fluffiest gluten-free pumpkin pancakes:
- It’s essential to prepare the dry and wet ingredients separately. Start by combining almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder.
- Use a mixer to beat the eggs and sweetener until frothy to get tall and fluffy pancakes. Slowly stir the dry ingredients and try not to over mix the batter.
- Cook the pumpkin pancakes over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan. Once nonstick pan is hot, pour about ¼ cup of the batter into the pan. Cover the pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until the edges start to brown.
TIP: Try being patient while the pancakes cook. Since they are made with almond and coconut flour instead of wheat flour, the time needed for them to be well cooked and not mushy it’s a little bit longer. Cover the pancakes and cook on medium heat to make sure they are evenly browned.
What to Serve with Keto Pumpkin Pancakes?
These pumpkin spice keto pancakes are amazing on their own, but I love my toppings:
