I feel like when it comes to pumpkin recipes, there are those who REALLY enjoy the pumpkin flavor and those who simply like a touch of it. 

I’m definitely in the latter- I do enjoy prominent pumpkin flavor in certain recipes, but for the majority….I’d rather not. In case you couldn’t tell, with the flourless pumpkin chocolate muffins, pumpkin spice energy balls and the edible pumpkin cookie dough

That is why these healthy pumpkin pancakes cover both bases. For those who want just a taste of pumpkin (i.e. just the spices), you are covered in the keto pumpkin pancakes option. For my friends who want the full-blown pumpkin IN YOUR FACE taste, the flourless pumpkin pancakes are for you.

How to make keto pumpkin pancakes from scratch

We’ll start with option one- The keto and low carb pumpkin pancakes. These thick and fluffy pumpkin pancakes are made with a combination of coconut flour and almond flour, to achieve the delicious, light texture. 

I often get asked how pumpkin can be part of the keto diet, seeing as though it is primarily made of carbohydrates. Well, if we take a closer look, it has a low net carb count. That, however, is beside the point- We won’t be using any actual pumpkin in the recipe!

To achieve a taste of pumpkin, we’ll be using pumpkin pie spice. 

Pumpkin pie spice can be purchased in supermarkets or online, or you can easily make it yourself. Simple combine ground cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, ginger and sometimes allspice.

I prefer making my own as I am NOT a huge fan of cloves and more often than not omit it completely.

The texture of these keto pumpkin pancakes is light, fluffy and a touch cake-y- The perfect trio to achieve perfect paleo and low carb pumpkin pancakes. 

Bonus? These pumpkin pancakes are freezer-friendly and can be easily thawed for quick grab-and-go breakfasts.

How to make no-flour pumpkin pancakes from scratch

The flourless option for the pumpkin pancakes is perfect if you follow an egg-free and vegan lifestyle. It’s also perfect if you want the dominant pumpkin flavor.

Instead of using flour, you’ll be using rolled oats or quinoa flakes, and blend them down to a fine consistency. As there are no eggs, the pumpkin puree gives it a delicious cake-like texture. 

Please note that the flourless vegan pumpkin pancakes option also requires apple cider vinegar, as this is needed to achieve the light and fluffy texture. If you don’t have any on hand, you can sub it for lemon or lime juice!

Confession- Even though I just said I prefer the less obvious pumpkin flavor, I DO love these ones doused in maple syrup and almond butter- They are super fluffy and super thick, and 2 of these can fill me up for hours! 

Tips and Tricks for PERFECT fluffy and thick pumpkin pancakes

Everyone has their tips and tricks to achieve perfect fluffy pancakes. My number 1 trick is to be patient.

How?

Cook the pancakes on low heat and be sure to cover them! By doing this, you are trapping the heat and the entire pancake cooks evenly, instead of just one side. Once it is golden on the edges and bubbling, flip, cover and voila- Thick, pillow-like pancakes.

You are welcome.

  1. Are the keto ones supposed to have pumpkin puree in them? I didn’t see that listed as an ingredient. I love pumpkin and pancakes, so this is a match made in heaven!

  2. Made the keto version this morning, and they were unanimously approved! =) I put butter and pecans on mine. =) Thanks for the recipe!!

  3. I made them but they weren’t fluffy. They tasted okay. I might try again with a different almond flour
