Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose gluten free baking flour

1 cup almond milk

1 egg

¾ cup pureed pumpkin

¼ cup buckwheat flour

2 Tbsp butter, melted

1 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

 

Directions

1. Mix together the egg, sugar and vanilla until foamy. Add melted butter and pureed pumpkin and combine well.

2. In a separate bowl, combine gluten free flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder and the spices. Add the combined dry mixture to the pumpkin mixture.

3. Add milk and stir until the batter is smooth.

4. Heat a frying pan and use a 1/3 measuring cup to pour the batter on the heated frying pan. Once the top of the pancake starts to bubble, flip the pancake and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Watch carefully.

5. Serve warm with maple syrup or your desired topping.
