Paleo Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Start to Finish: 25 minutes

Pancake ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil or grass fed ghee, plus more for cooking
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (BPA-free)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla collagen peptides
  • 1 teaspoon paleo baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Optional: liquid stevia to taste

Coconut whipped cream ingredients:

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (BPA-free, refrigerated for at least 24 hours)
  • 1-2 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla collagen peptides


  1. Prepare coconut whipped cream first. Open your can of chilled coconut milk and carefully spoon out the solid coconut cream that has separated at the top. Add to a chilled mixing bowl with remaining ingredients and whip vigorously with a whisk or hand mixer until light and fluffy. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Prepare pancakes: In a mixing bowl, combine coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs, pumpkin, and sweetener.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and blend in slowly.
  5. Heat a pan or griddle with about 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil or ghee and swirl to coat the pan. Spoon batter onto the pan to cook. Wait about 2 minutes before flipping, and flip when batter begins to bubble.
  6. Remove from pan and continue cooking pancakes until batter is finished.
  7. Serve pancakes with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.
