Pumpkin Season: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes


Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about Fall.  Decorate the house with them and adding pumpkin to my recipes is my favorite! Try starting your day with pumpkin pancakes.

Pumpkin pancakes can easily put a smile on your face.


These are the perfect way to start a lazy day or to send the kids off to school with a smile.


Top them with fresh blueberries, the last of the season or frozen works well too. Drop in some dark chocolate chips for a special treat!


 I’m sure it will put a smile on your face as it sure does for my guys!


This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free.

  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 T ground flax-seed
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • ½ t. guar gum
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • ½ t. ginger
  • ¼ t. nutmeg


  • Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Mix all of the wet ingredients in another bowl, stir to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix to incorporate.
  • Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes to thicken a bit.
  • Too thick? Add a little more milk.
  • Spoon mixture onto a hot griddle or pan. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side.
  • Add in chocolate chips, blueberries or diced apples.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with pure maple syrup. Enjoy!




Although these are perfect plain, you can add dark chocolate chips or fresh/frozen blueberries to the batter before cooking or add them in after dropping the batter onto the griddle.


They should cook up fluffy and golden brown.


Top with real maple syrup and cinnamon – Enjoy!
