Paleo pancakes and crepes are a weekend family favorite around here. So, every Saturday and Sunday morning I’m experimenting with a new combination of ingredients to feed my hungry boys (husband included). My kids have a preference for chocolate. And, while I can’t blame them, I do love a soft, fluffy pumpkin pancake like these Pumpkin Cassava Pancakes. Thankfully my husband does too, so I don’t have to recipe test and eat all the end results myself!
These easy-to-make Pumpkin Cassava Pancakes are:
- gluten free
- grain free
- nut free
- dairy free
- sweetened with coconut sugar
- easy to make
You really can’t go wrong with a healthy pumpkin pancake recipe like this! Personally, it’s one of my favorite weekend breakfasts, especially during the fall months.
Ingredients in Pumpkin Cassava Pancakes
These pancakes contain simple, Paleo friendly ingredients. In addition, they are nut free, coconut free, light and fluffy.
The base of these pancakes is composed of cassava flour. My favorite brand of cassava flour is Otto’s Cassava Flour. They have the highest quality cassava flour and it works better for Paleo baking than any other brand I’ve tried. Otto’s Cassava Flour peels, dries and then grinds their cassava into a reliable flour. They also ensure that every batch is free of the top 8 allergens.
These pancakes are sweetened with coconut sugar. However, any Paleo friendly sugar or sweetener would work. For instance, maple syrup, honey or monk fruit.
Obviously, pumpkin is a must for making pumpkin pancakes. This recipe uses canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. You could also make your own pumpkin puree by steaming raw pumpkin and then blending it in a blender or food processor until the mixture is smooth.
This recipe calls for eggs. However, if you are egg free, substituting with flax or chia eggs would work as well. Simply combine 2 Tbsp ground flax (or chia seed) with 6 Tbsp water. Stir, then let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes.
