Fluffy Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Autumn is the time for pumpkin picking, and also a time to use that delicious pumpkin in recipes on crisp autumn days. These Fluffy Gluten-free Pumpkin Pancakes are delicious. The addition of nutrient-packed pumpkin makes these pancakes super soft and moist.

Benefits of Pumpkin

Pumpkin is loaded with Vitamin A which is essential for eye health and helps prevent macular degeneration. It is also loaded with phytonutrients which helps lower blood pressure and prevent hypertension.  A member of the squash family, pumpkin is also high in beta-carotene and antioxidants which gives it cancer-fighting properties.

Pumpkin is also very high in fiber which is great for heart health. It also helps us feel full, so we are less likely to overeat. By adding it to these pancakes, it not only makes them delicious but also makes it a hearty, satisfying breakfast on a cool morning!

Gluten-free flour blend

You can buy an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend, but I mix up my own big batch of whole grain gluten-free flours that I keep handy in a large jar to easily whip us recipes like these:

Makes 2 1/2 cups

  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • ¾ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup sorghum flour
  • ¼ cup teff flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch/flour
