Makes about 12 pancakes
Tiny and tender, lightly sweetened, and simple to make, these little pancakes contain only five ingredients, and are a breeze to whip up for any breakfast. For a treat, add bits of minced candied ginger; sprinkle pancakes with chopped toasted pecans before serving, if you’d like.
1/3 cup pumpkin purée
1/3 cup almond flour
2 Tbs. coconut sugar
Pinch of salt
Coconut oil for cooking
- In medium bowl, beat eggs and pumpkin together with hand mixer or in standing mixer, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in flour, coconut sugar, and salt.
