Pumpkin pancakes

I get a lot of questions regarding what our family eats because of all of our different food sensitivities. I wanted to post some of our favorites on here, 1) for me to look back at while I’m meal planning, and 2) for you to try for yourself if you’re stuck on what to feed your family if you are struggling to feed someone with similar food allergies/sensitivities.

Please feel free to share with someone you may know who has food allergies. For some of us, it is not always easy to find healthy, tasty, easy recipes that we can eat!

*While I do not consider myself a professional in any way, I do take our family’s food sensitivities very seriously. My husband and girls have been tested for food sensitivities and thus we know exactly what foods to cut out. If you are having any problems due to food (there is such a broad spectrum of symptoms!), I highly suggest getting the IgG ELISA test done by a professional. The results are very specific and our family’s symptoms have been completely eliminated due to our diligence. 


My girls absolutely love breakfast. They wake up and the first thing on their mind is food. I searched quite a bit to find something tasty all the while not upsetting their tummies from food sensitivities. I found a tasty “pancake” recipe that my girls could both have. If you have traveled this road with limited food options, you know how much these recipes are worth (which is why I’m sharing it with you today)!

These are really easy to make, leftovers still taste just as good as fresh when heated up, and they fill up my girls’ stomachs!

Please keep in mind, these pancakes do not flip as easily as a normal pancake. I make them a bit smaller to help reduce mess.

PUMPKIN PANCAKES  

(yields 15 small pancakes)

1-15oz canned Pumpkin puree (I use Farmer’s Market brand from Vitacost)

6-8 eggs (depends on their size)

dash of cinnamon

(sometimes we add Enjoy Life Chocolate chips instead of putting maple syrup on top)

*Mix all ingredients together really well. Spoon onto a hot skillet or pan. I like to use avocado oil when needed to ensure they do not stick. Pour a little bit of maple syrup on. Serve warm.

If possible, please use USDA certified organic/locally grown food and make sure your ingredients specify that they are gluten free. 

Does not contain: gluten, dairy, nuts

 

*I have linked my Vitacost order above by the pumpkin puree. If you sign up under this link, you will receive $10 off your first $30 purchase! I will also receive money off towards my next purchase. I use Vitacost on a very regular basis. They contain a lot of allergy-free foods and ship directly to your door! I highly suggest this company!
