How to make gluten-free pumpkin pancakes from scratch

STEP 1: Heat a medium saucepan on the stove top on low-medium. In a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, oil, and maple syrup. Add in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, ginger, and salt and whisk to combine.

STEP 2: Spray your saucepan with cooking spray or use a nonstick pan. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop pancake mixture onto stove top and spread into a circle. When your pancakes begin to set on top (about 3 minutes) flip it and cook the bottom until it is golden brown (about 2 minutes).

STEP 3: Remove from heat and repeat with the remaining batter.

STEP 4: Serve with maple syrup and your favorite pancake toppings.

Tips for success

Use a ¼ cup measuring cup per pancake to ensure each one is an even silver dollar shaped. Start with the heat about low-medium for the first one and as pancakes cook it make start to brown more, so after about the first round of cooking adjust the heat to low if needed and cook 2-3 minutes per side until cooked through. You can also cook them all at once on a large griddle, for about 3 minutes for the first side, 2 minutes for the second side.
