It is our tradition over Thanksgiving and Christmas to crack out the pumpkin pancake recipes! Of course, our traditional recipes are full of sugar. The homemade buttermilk syrup on top is TO DIE FOR, but the recipe starts with 1 cup of refined sugar, and 1/4 cup corn syrup! Eeeek!
I watched the documentary Fed Up this week. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It reminds us that sugar is everywhere and in everything! The over-consumption of sugar and other processed foods is like poison in our bodies. I'm all for moderation, but I certainly like to eliminate it when I can.
This recipe does just that:)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 almond milk 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Then combine and stir until moistened. I topped pancakes with a drizzle of real maple syrup and walnuts.
