Take One: My First Attempt at Paleo Pumpkin Walnut Pancakes

I love pumpkin, and I love pancakes. Pumpkin pancakes on a chilly weekend morning sounded like a lovely idea. 

Because of what's best for my body and no other reason, I am trying to eat less grains. As a result, I have been experimenting with different ingredients and how I can make some of my favorite things, minus the grains. 

This paleo pumpkin pancake recipe came about as a result. 

The final cooked texture of the pancake is dense; but perhaps this is due more to my impatience and sizing of the pancakes than the recipe itself, which generated from a survey of various paleo pancake recipes. 

This particular recipe makes 10-12 pancakes. 

Paleo Pumpkin Walnut* Pancakes

4 large eggs, beaten
1 can of pumpkin 
2 tablespoons raw honey
1.5 cups of almond meal/flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
1/3-1/2 cups walnuts, chopped (optional)

Coconut oil for greasing your skillet

Mix the wet ingredients. Add to the dry ingredients.

Grease your skillet with coconut oil.
Add a dollop of batter
Cook over medium low heat. This is where I became impatient. They will flip easier if you're patient and wait until they solidify a bit more. 

I ate my pancakes drizzled with real maple syrup, and they were delicious! My husband liked the flavor, but he agreed that they were dense. Better for keeping us full, I said. 

I will be making these again. If you make them, please let me know what you think. 


  1. oooh you had my family at the dense and cake'y!!!!!!

  2. My husband would probably love these. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin.

  3. Always fun trying new recipes especially if they are healthier for you.

  4. Yum - pumpkin and walnut are a perfect combination.

  5. Hi Kelly, another pumpkin thing, lol... The recipe looks interesting and seems like you enjoyed them, I admire your healthy food direction efforts and in your training!

  6. They were good. I will be trying them again. :-)

  7. Pumpkin ad nauseam. I will be trying them again. :-)

  8. It's worth the effort, in my opinion. Keep moving forward. :-)

  9. I love pumpkin, but only during this time of the year. :-)

  10. Seriously...they were dense and cake'y, but with great flavor. Worth the effort, in my opinion. :-)
