gluten-free pumpkin pancakes with coconut kefir chia seed pumpkin sauce

by Lori and Michelle on December 20, 2011

pancakes that are gluten free

hello luvs!

as we mentioned yesterday we have some super yummy recipes to share with you this week. some are raw and some are baked. but every recipe is delicious and healthy! perfect for this time of year when people want satisfying eats but also stay on track with fitness goals, like us. that is why we created these recipes.

we wanted some fun eats this holiday season that are comforting, full of flavor, made from wholesome foods and of course gluten-free!


now pumpkin pancakes are no new thing. we have been wanting to make pumpkin pancakes for some time now. it actually took us a few trials 4 attempts to get these pancakes where we were satisfied with them. they are not vegan but can totally be made with a flax gel to replace the egg. also if you do not eat gluten-free then you can sub the gluten-free flours for any flour of your liking. (1 cup total flour)

pancakes with coconut kefir chia seed pumpkin dairy-free sauce

we love pumpkin pancakes almost as much as we love our pumpkin donuts. but we do admit we have some trouble with making really amazing gluten-free pancakes. sometimes we want light and fluffy, as other times want a thin pancake, but we prefer thick pancakes!  *as you may have noticed we have been slowly updating our recipe page, check out our pancakes page to see all our other pancakes.

Twins Question: What is your favorite childhood memory of Christmas? Any fun traditions?

We remember making sugar cookies and decorating them with our older sisters. We remember not sleeping the night before, waiting with excitement to first check out our stockings!! Even though we grew up with no fireplace, we still had stockings. A favorite memory for us. We started to play, which seemed liked hours before the rest of our family would show up to have breakfast then open more gifts. Good times…looking to making many new memories with our niece!

Till next time….next recipe is something warm from the oven and full of spice, any guesses?
