Pumpkin Pancakes



I love pumpkin anything! This time of year I go crazy with all the yummy pumpkin goodies all over the place and I can't have any due to eating gluten free. I'm not one to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when I am only cooking for myself so I decided to see if I could adapt a high protein *pancake recipe into a Pumpkin Pancake recipe. It is so good and satisfies my pumpkin cravings. I love this recipe because it is high protein, low carb, and easily adaptable for gluten free needs. Great for getting eggs into the kids too. I made two batches of these this weekend for two of my grand kids and I. They asked for them again at snack time ;)



 Here's your round up of ingredients. Using a blender makes these super easy to mix and clean up is quick.



Break eggs into blender first, add cream cheese, pumpkin, a dash of salt and spices. Optional ingredients are flour and baking powder. Use a gluten free flour if you like. Blend well, you may need to stop and use a spatula on the sides. 



Pour into a hot skillet, plate up and enjoy!







Pumpkin Pancakes

2 eggs
1 TB of cream cheese
1 TB of pumpkin
1/2 tsp of spices (I used pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and nutmeg are nice)
dash of salt
1 TB of flour  *Optional (your choice of variety, gluten free or not)
1/4 tsp of baking powder. *Optional 


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend well; pour into a hot skillet. Brown and turn. This batter is thinner than traditional pancakes and each cake is thinner. This recipe will make about 6-8  three inch pancakes.

This recipe will double or triple very nicely if desired.

Check out my Pumpkin Pie Spice Syrup to go with these. 

* Flour and/or baking powder is optional in this recipe. It will work fine without either ingredient but may not be as fluffy or thick; perhaps more like a crepe. 

*I believe Susan Sommers came up with this recipe originally but I am not sure.

  19. Hi Connie! Going gaga for your pumpkin pancakes - and so glad to see you featuring gluten free and healthful ingredients!! From scratch! Just used up my last can of pumpkin for these great gluten free dollop cookies I make that hubby loves. This may be next on the list - but we need to get on the other side of Hurricane Sandy I'm in South Jersey - ground zero for landfall later today. We still have power so I'm blogging!
    Joy!
