Pumpkin Paleo Pecan Pancakes

Happy New Year!
Last day of vacation... I simply had to give these a try! I still had a little leftover pumpkin from our Christmas pumpkin pie, and I thought using it for pancakes might be tasty. I used my same nut butter recipe - substituting the applesauce or banana portion for the pumpkin puree! I did add a couple tablespoons of honey to compensate for some loss of sweetness. They turned out yummy! ...So if you ever find yourself stuck with a little leftover pumpkin puree... this is a great solution! "Pumpkin Paleo Pecan Pancakes!" - (try saying that 3 times together). Hope you enjoy!

1/2 C pumpkin puree, organic, unsweetened
1/2 C almond butter
1/4 C chopped pecans, toasted
2 eggs
2 T honey
1 T vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg

Preheat a nonstick griddle to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour onto hot griddle (desired pancake size). Let them cook for about 2-3 minutes (you'll see the pancakes start to bubble and cook on the edges when they're ready to flip). Flip and cook a couple more minutes. Top with your favorite all-fruit preserve or enjoy them just the way they are! This recipe makes about 4, 4-inch pancakes! A nice finale to a wonderful holiday! Happy New Year!!!


  1. I make Pumpkin Pancakes but I used roasted butternut squash slices as well as pureed pumpkin and then just egg whites, cinnamon & stevia! Delish!! :)

  2. Those look fabulous! I'm def gonna try them :)

  3. I actually tried saying Pumpkin Paleo Pecan Pancakes a few times in a row. Needless to say, I didn't get to far. Plus, my wife gave me a "are you done yet...?" look. lol This looks delish! Gonna have to gather up the ingredients and try it soon!

  4. I can't wait to try these. I may make them on a camping trip in the future :)

  5. Love this idea. I make a primal "man chili" and use 1/2 a can of pumpkin in it and always have the other half floating around.

  6. Just tried these, taste is lovely, but in order to cook the inside, the outside got burnt. I think it maybe because I used 1 tsp of vanilla, because even though your recipe said 1 T I thought that seemed like a lot, although it would have thinned them out which may have helped. Will try again tomorrow.
