Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour we used white whole-wheat
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 egg lightly whipped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil unrefined, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream low-fat, optional Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree unsweetened, not pumpkin pie filling


  • In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Whisk together dry and wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. The mixture should be the consistency of a thin pancake batter.
  • Lightly coat a large skillet or griddle with nonstick cooking or oil. Turn to medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of pancake mix. Smooth into rounds with the back of a ladle or spoon.
  • Allow the pancakes to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until bubbles form on the surface and they are golden on the bottom, and easy to flip. Cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until golden on the bottom. Place on a plate when done and cover with a towel while the other pancakes are cooking.
  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt, if desired, and/or with pure maple syrup. Enjoy!

    1. We try to avoid white flours because they offer virtually no nutritional value. These pancakes can be made with all-purpose flour, but don’t recommend it.

  1. I think there is a mistake in the recipe. 1tbsp backing powder & soda is way too much! I’ve added 1tsb each and still can taste soda flavour.

    1. Nat, I’ve revamped the recipe based having made my delicious pumpkin pancakes over the weekend. The recipe should now work great! I was out of sour cream so instead used buttermilk. YUM! Please keep us posted. 🙂
