If you’re like me, you LOVE waking up on Saturday morning and whipping up a big, tasty breakfast! There is something so simple and calm about a slow morning at home filled with cooking, coffee, and relaxation!
One of my absolute favorite breakfast foods is pancakes…sometimes, having something sweet for breakfast is just the way to go! These flourless pumpkin spice pancakes definitely do the job of satisfying all of my sweet breakfast cravings! Super fluffy and delicious, they have become one of my favorite breakfasts!
I love how easy they are to make, with a total prep and cook time of only 20 minutes. The carb count is low too, which is a huge selling point for me! Try them out; you will love love love them!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
These pancakes are my absolute favorite because they are sooo tasty and super simple to make. One of the reasons I really love this recipe is because it doesn’t contain any flour and is, therefore, compliant with many diets, such as gluten free and grain free, and is safe to consume for those with nut allergies!
Without using flour, that same fluffy pancake texture that we all love is achieved through a combination of ingredients including eggs, ground psyllium husk, cream of tartar, sweetener, a bunch of yummy spices, plus a few other simple ingredients!
Lots of protein and fiber!
Made with eggs, these pancakes are full of protein. One pancake contains 9.6 grams, which is A LOT more than you would get in a “traditional,” flour-based pancake. They have a ton of fiber too, stemming mostly from the ground psyllium husk, which contains virtually 0 net carbs per serving! With the high fiber content, each pancake contains only 3.3 grams of net carbs!
These nutrition facts are pretty impressive, especially considering the fact that we are talking about a PANCAKE breakfast!
So many nutritional benefits!
One of the primary flavors you’ll notice when tasting these
flourless pumpkin spice pancakes is cinnamon. Did you know cinnamon has a bunch of nutritional benefits? Dating back to ancient Egypt, cinnamon has been used for centuries because of how tasty and healthy it is. First, it is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Second, it lowers blood sugar and bad cholesterol!
Another awesome ingredient in this dish is nutmeg. Often overlooked in the spice world, nutmeg is AWESOME. Not only does it make these pumpkin spice pancakes extra yummy, but it also helps with digestion and bloating.
Healthy Flourless Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
One of my favorite parts about this dish is that it is sweet, but still low carb! This is achieved through using my favorite sweetener, Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, rather than cane sugar.
Monk fruit sweetener is the BEST keto sweetener to use because it is so easy to incorporate into recipes. You use the same ratio as regular sugar, and you won’t be able to taste a flavor difference! It is the perfect way to make a sweet treat low carb and keto-friendly!
In addition to the sweetener, Lakanto also makes a Maple-Flavored Syrup, which is PERFECT for drizzling on top of these healthy pumpkin spice pancakes!
To make this Lakanto discussion EVEN sweeter, I have some great news for Real Balanced readers!
