Pumpkin Pie Pancakes
Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 2 teaspoons ghee or butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
Instructions
  1. Heat a small, heavy skillet over medium heat; add the pecans and toast, shaking the pan frequently and taking care they do not burn, until the nuts are fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Toss them with the melted ghee and salt and set
  2. aside. Chop coarsely oncey they have cooled.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla until well-blended. In a smaller, separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, salt and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the
  4. wet ingredients, mixing just enough to ensure there are no lumps.
  5. Lightly grease a griddle with your fat of choice (butter, lard, coconut oil, etc) and heat just until a drop of water placed on the griddle sizzles briefly before evaporating. Using a ladle or small measuring cup, pour the batter by
  6. the scant 1/4 cupful onto the griddle and cook just until bubble appear on the surface. Carefully flip and cook on the other side until the pancake is done, about one minute more.
  7. Place on a plate, cover and keep warm; repeat the previous steps until all of the batter has been used. Top with the buttered pecans and serve warm with additional maple syrup, if desired.
