    Wow! That is a gorgeous pic. It makes me want to try these right away!! I have the same issue with food pics. It’s one thing that keeps me from food blogging, but oh well. It looks like you’re getting the hang of it.

    I added about 1-2 tablespoons of coconut flour to the recipe and it was a lot easier to work with since it wasn’t so thin. Delicious pancakes and so easy. Thanks much, Lauren, for your wonderful recipes and very informative web site!

    I think that you are so inspiring. Your blog is beautiful and your recipes are some of the most creative recipes I’ve come across (and I’m constantly trolling blogs)! I love that this has only two ingredients, and since I had some leftover squash puree (butternut, not pumpkin) this morning, I decided to give this one a go. Yum, yum, yum!

    I also thought that this little p’cake might make a really nice wrap for some pulled meat or carnitas for a nice sweet/savory combo. Can’t wait to try it. I know I’ll be getting some mileage out of this recipe.

    Thanks Lauren!

    My kids wanted pancakes this morning, and I thought i’d try these so I could join them. I wish I had read the comments first and added some coconut flour to thicken them up. I loved them, but my as yet un-converted, flour-eating family weren’t impressed. One child said it tasted like pumpkin eggs not pumpkin pancakes, lol. Well, he was right, wasn’t he? Two out of three liked them, but said we should come up w/ a different name for them because they weren’t pancakes. :) At any rate, 2 of 3 ain’t bad, right? We’ll keep plugging away at a slow conversion. I want my kids to learn to enjoy food that is good for them and not feel forced into eating “my way.” Thank you so much for providing all these wonderful alternatives to try out!

    Lauren, these pancakes saved me! So many pancake recipes call for nut/coconut flours, and neither I can have. So simple and so delicious, these really are perfect on a Sunday morning. I like to top them with greek yogurt and a blueberry sauce (then I don’t need to have ANY sweetener!). I was wondering if you would consider writing a post about your daily routine – what you eat in a typical day, your go-to meals perhaps. I’m so curious! Thanks!!

    I just made a batch as I happened to have some homemade pumpkin puree in the fridge! Yum! I didn’t expect them to be this good. So quick and easy to make when you feel like a treat, they didn’t look as pretty as yours thou. Thanks for the recipe I definitely will make again :)

    I just made this recipe this morning and they were horrible. I am truly sorry to say something like that. I added a pinch of salt to them and some coconut flour to make them in to more of a batter and still nothing. I had to drown them in honey to get my son to eat them. Luckily I harvest the honey from my own property so it was incredibly fresh and natural. Unfortunately bland food is what I have been running into a lot trying to create a better lifestyle for myself and my family.

    I love the information on your website. I am, by choice, a stay at home Dad with two young boys and the information I have attained from your website and a few other has been invaluable. However, my wife, who is a very picky eater…..doesn’t like salad type picky eater…and and my older son (3), who is not a picky eater, are finding this diet to be an extreme challenge……especially at breakfast. Eggs every day isn’t going to cut it but I have yet to find a pancake, waffle, Paleo-like granola, etc., that has real flavor to it. Unless I use almond flour which is incredibly bad for you.

    Do you know of any other cook books or ideas for VERY picky eaters like my wife?

      I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you, I’ve only received positive feedback for this recipe so I don’t know what went wrong. Picky eating and sensory issues with food actually stems from serious digestive imbalances. You can learn how to address it with this book: http://amzn.to/YWYdwi

    I made these this morning, and they turned out great! All five of my kids approved. I changed the quantities a bit. 1 cup pumpkin puree (mine was quite runny), 6 eggs, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 Tbsp. coconut flour. We put yogurt and apple butter on top. We are brand new to grain free eating due to my daughter’s recent diagnosis with Type 1 DM. I’ve found your site very helpful!
