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 ( but feel free to substitute with your fave flour, see options in Kate’s Tips below) 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 super easy to make 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

Butter Pecan Syrup
Toast ½ cup pecans in a hot saucepan until fragrant, about 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Add 4 tablespoons butter and let it melt. Add 1 cup pure maple syrup and simmer for a few minutes.
Pour over warm Pumpkin Pancakes. Heavenly!!
- Add sliced bananas or crunchy granola, toasted coconut or raisins. Chocolate chips would be fun 🙂
- I use Rumford Baking Powder because it’s gluten free and aluminum free and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Whole Grain Oat Flour.
- In place of the oat flour you can use almond flour or spelt flour. You can also try Cassava Flour…it’s grain-free, gluten-free, certified paleo and non-gmo!
- I like to use organic canned pumpkin puree.
- If you don’t love pumpkin, try applesauce instead. Add some chopped apples to the batter.
- Try this organic maple syrup 🙂
- This recipe makes fantastic waffles!
- Serve warm with crisp bacon and hot coffee!
