Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes & Butter Pecan Syrup

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes & Butter Pecan Syrup

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes dripping with Butter Pecan Syrup!

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!

Kate’s Tips

  • 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.
  • If you don’t love pumpkin, just use applesauce instead. You might want to add some chopped apples to the batter.
  • This recipe makes great waffles too.
  • For another gluten free option, try ½ cup almond flour and ½ cup coconut flour. Increase eggs to three.
  • Serve warm with fried eggs, crisp bacon and hot coffee!

Blackberry Slab Pie

Slab Pie

I have a new obsession and it's called Slab Pie. If you're wondering what it is just imagine this: warm, flaky, luscious Pop-Tarts for grown-ups. The basic concept is this: take a pie recipe, spread it all out and bake it flat in a jelly roll pan or Half-Size Sheet Pan. Pie transforms from a nice dessert into a wonderful treat you can pick up and … [Continue reading]
