It’s fall so what do you say we celebrate with something pumpkin-y, spicy, sweet and buttery! Cool fall mornings call for warm, hearty pancakes. How do Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes & Butter Pecan Syrup sound? This is a super easy recipe to make and the Butter Pecan Syrup just takes them over the top! I’m using certified Gluten Free Oat Flour to make these and they are nice and cake-y, not like those rubbery-paleo-banana-egg concoctions most of us think of when we think paleo or gluten free pancakes.
These babies are spicy, yummy and the Butter Pecan Syrup is to die for delicious. Pour over pancakes, waffles, or french toast. It will also be divine over vanilla ice cream!
Some other fall breakfast options for you:
- Apple Pumpkin Gluten Free Muffins
- Banana Crunch Pancakes
- Banana Nut Streusel Sour Cream Muffins
- French Toast Muffins -( these would be especially good with the Butter Pecan Syrup)
- Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
- Blueberry Muffins

- Feel free to get creative with these. Add sliced bananas or crunchy granola, toasted coconut or raisins. Chocolate chips would be fun
- Feel free to use regular unbleached flour or spelt flour in place of the oat flour.
