Hurricanes call for Pumpkin Pancakes

It was a hurricane out there. Sandy to be exact.

Yesterday, I was sequestered inside my house…which is not so different from other days…

When it’s gray and windy outside, I like to hole up inside with warm, comforting foods.

In this case, one of those foods were pumpkin pancakes.

I used the recipe from Practical Paleo, which can also be found on the Balanced Bites website. I lurve this recipe because there’s no flour in it! NONE! Just eggs, pumpkin, spices and some optional maple syrup. I topped mine with some grass-fed butter and cinnamon like the recipes suggested. No need for syrup on top. They. Were. Amazing.

As there is no flour in these pancakes, I consider them a vegetable.

The most delicious vegetable I’ve had in a looooong time 😉

To me, pancakes are a sometimes treats for special occasions. I usually just stick with eggs and veggies for breakfast.

This morning, however, I needed something warm and comforting. These pancakes helped me satisfy that craving while still sticking with my Nutritional Reset (which ends today, by the way).

Do you ever eat “Paleo” pancakes? What’s your favorite recipe?

    I have been eating sweet potato pancakes with one egg white, coconut flour, cinnamon, flax, and vanilla. Love it!

    would you consider these pancakes a treat or something thats ok to eat a few times a week?

      That’s a good question, Crystal. Because this recipe doesn’t have any kind of flour in it (almond or coconut), I think I would eat these maybe once a week– IF I had the time to make them. If I ate them more regularly, I wouldn’t do maple syrup every time, just because of the sugar, but I would do the grass-fed butter and some fresh fruit on them or something!
