Pumpkin Pancakes (with coconut flour)

pumpkin-pancakes

This pumpkin pancakes recipe is very high in protein and low in carbs, meaning that it won’t raise your blood sugar levels  and it will keep you going strong throughout the morning. 

 They are gorgeously sweet and the spices used enhance the taste of pumpkin.   The pumpkin puree can be made ahead or over night.  Boil 100g pumpkin with a bit of water and blend into a puree. Voila!

Or cheat, and use the canned pumpkin puree…but used unsweetened!  The pancakes are very fragile to handle so I would advise to cook them in small amounts otherwise they will break when you flip them.  Make “mini” pancakes and they should keep their shape better.

    Love the sound of these….where do I find coconut flour? Can I get it at Geant/Carrefour with the gram flour and all that?

      I buy it from Amazon as I could not find it here. I have asked the Organic shop to stock it and they are currently looking at their suppliers. Let’s hope they start selling it soon. It is fairly cheap on Amazon and a bag lasts a lot longer than normal flour as you only use a few tablespoons in each recipe.
