Skill level: Beginner

Serves: 4

Start to Finish: 30 minutes

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

¼ teaspoon sea salt

1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons full fat Greek yogurt

¼ cup whole milk

3 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided

3 large eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 drops liquid Stevia

Sugar-free maple syrup, optional topping

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, sift together the almond flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, yogurt, milk, 2 tablespoons of the butter, the beaten egg, vanilla, and Stevia.
  2. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until incorporated. Using a hand mixer or immersion blender with a whisk attachment, whisk the mixture for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Melt ½ tablespoon of the remaining butter in a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, ladle 2 tablespoons of batter at a time onto the griddle or skillet, leaving room between the pancakes. Cook until the sides are slightly browned and bubbles begin to form, about 3 minutes.
  4. Flip the pancakes and cook pancakes until golden brown and crisp around the edges, an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet and place onto a place, covering with aluminum foil or a clean towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter and batter to make 8 pancakes.
  5. Serve warm and top with maple syrup, if desired.
