Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Hello again Paleo world. It has been over a year since posting a yummy recipe. I have continued my paleo journey with my family during that time (not perfectly of course) but still here with yummy recipes to share.  Probably the real reason for the break in posts is the fact that my once newborn turned one last year. Yeeeeah that was interesting and continues to be "exciting." Then my oldest started Kindergarten, my daycare got very busy...lots of things. But I'm back just in time for fall fun recipes :)

First one is what we did this morning...Pumpkin Paleo Pancakes. My 18 mo. old is sitting in his highchair now eating his 8th one. Go for it dude. So I double the recipe to feed my 3 growing boys as well as my hubby and myself while still having a couple extra to freeze for easy meals. This time my freezer batch is going to 2 of my best friends. One is due with her second son any day now and has a gluten intolerance (her diet is up my alley).  And the other is a fellow paleo-lover for her family and her husband just went through cancer treatment. A hopefully easy way for both of them to stay eating well and feeling well when their worlds are a little crazy.

So here we go...the recipe: Remember to double if making a batch to freeze or you have a big addiction to them like my kids do :)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

4 eggs
5 Tbsp. Almond Meal
4 Tbsp. Pumpkin
1/2 cup apple sauce (w/ no added sugar)
1 Tbsp. Pule Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Cinnamon (I love the cinnamon taste so I use 1 TBSP. instead)
1/2 tsp. both nutmeg and ground ginger

In a bowl mix together ingredients with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Pour onto coconut oiled griddle. Flip when the edges look dry. Top with pure maple syrup or apple sauce.
