It’s finally fall! I’ve been dreaming of pumpkin spice lattes since mid-summer and now that the fall season is finally here, I’ve been making my own batch at home (sometimes I’ll make a Starbucks run) and enjoying every sip. My love for pumpkin goes far. I like it in just about anything, from pumpkin brownies to pumpkin pie dip.
I’ve recently been playing around with a new pumpkin recipe. I’m on a bit of a diet so I wanted to make something healthy yet tasty and thus, pumpkin spice pancakes recipe was born.
Are you a pumpkin lover like me? If so, then you’re going to love this healthy pumpkin spice pancakes recipe I’m sharing with you today.
Not only does this recipe taste delicious, it’s paleo and keto-friendly! The pancakes are not sweet (I didn’t add any sweetener) so I like to add a few slices of bananas and nuts on top as well as maple syrup. So yummy!
