    Almond Flour Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

    Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

    Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes for a deliciously healthy gluten-free and grain-free breakfast!

    You ask for pumpkin and you get yourself some pumpkin friends!

    Looking at my most recent recipes here on the blog, there has been a pretty reoccurring theme of fall-inspired recipes happening on the blog. Pumpkin truffles, granola, cheesecake and more. Oh and don’t forget that pumpkin round up..

    Pancakes have been an absolute hit in our home and over on Instagram these days. And I am so excited to be sharing these pumpkin protein pancakes with you guys today! They have been my favorite fall breakfast I have been making and they are so simple to make, it is unreal.

    These pancakes are pretty much Jord’s biggest nightmare because he cannot stand anything pumpkin-flavored. HA! Stinks to be him during the fall season. More pancakes for us, right?

    Or more like more pumpkin pancakes for me!

    Now let’s make some almond flour pumpkin CAKES!

    So I have found that leftovers of these pancakes stay very well. Just in case you are a pumpkin pancake party of one (like me), you can make the batch and save the rest in the fridge for later! I heat mine up on the skillet over the stove or even in the oven. I have found microwaving them makes them a bit chewy/rubbery but that also can work if it’s the only option.

    Now I do use protein powder in them for an extra boost too. But you can probably add more almond flour if you prefer!almond flour pumpkin pancakes

    I don’t know if I made these wrong or not, but they completely fell apart while making them. They were so thick and hard to flip!! And I followed your recipe to a T.

      that definitely shouldn’t have happened! i haven’t heard that before. if the batter looks liquidy next time just add some more almond flour. also please do keep in mind that these will need to flipping gently!!

    is there any way you could sub out the eggs for flax eggs to make them vegan? or would that affect the batter too much?
