Pancakes are one of those paleo items that actually got me on board with paleo. But paleo pancakes were A LOT different almost 6 years ago. They were dry or eggy or banana-y, but they did the job…with lots of maple syrup on top. But paleo pancakes have evolved and these may be my favorite so far. I’ve made so many in the past, both on my website and in my newest cookbook, but these may shine the brightest. And they are scream basicb*tch fallishere and Ilovetowearblanketscavesanduggboots. Aka they are the best. But if you hate all of those things or just everything I just said, not to worry, you should still eat them anyways.
I feel like you and I haven’t talked in forever. And I’m trying to think what’s been going on. I went to Omaha to visit family over the weekend where I had a bloody mary martini at the sushi restaurant Blue and it was pretty much the best drink of my life. I’ve been planning my husband’s birthday which falls right after Christmas so it’s often forgotten about. The only thing I’ve planned so far is where we are going to eat dinner and I made a reservation, which is annoying to him since he absolutely hates plans. But that is already way more than I’ve ever done for him in the past. We have a wedding coming up this weekend. We are doing Thanksgiving with my parents in Colorado this year…after I get a workout in then instantly buzzed afterwards (a Thanksgiving Day tradition at our gym for the past 5 years). And that’s about it. I’m going to break it to my family that I don’t want to do gifts at Christmas anymore. As I get older, I’ve decided that if I want something bad enough, I will work hard to get it. I don’t need my parents wasting any of their retirement money on me anymore. It’s pointless. Not sure they will be on board, but we will see. And that’s that. Hoping for a random vacation to come up in January, but only time will tell. OH SH*T, I almost forgot. We have a hot tub coming in a few weeks!! Now if it would only get cold in Colorado. I’ve never wished that in my life, but I’m not sitting in a hot tub in 70 degree weather so…..
That’s all I got. What’s new with you? Babies? (My friends keep birthing things so I feel like that’s everyone’s story nowadays) Vacations you need me to come on with you? Tell me things.

For the pancakes
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1 cup (carton, unsweetened) almond milk
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (plus more for topping pancakes with)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- coconut oil or ghee, for greasing pan
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
For the crumb topping
- Whisk together pancake ingredients: eggs, almond milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Then, while continuously whisking, add coconut flour, tapioca flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and baking soda and a pinch of salt to the large bowl or blender. Mix until batter is well combined.
- Grease a griddle pan and place over medium heat. Once pan is hot, use a large ladle to pour a three inch size pancake on the pan then sprinkle with a small amount of chocolate chips on top. Cook until bubbles begin to form on the pancakes, about 3-4 minutes, then lift with a spatula and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until completely cooked through. Repeat until no batter remains - about 14 pancakes.
- While the pancakes are finishing up, place all ingredients for the crumb topping in a food processor or blender and pulse until cashews are broken up and everything is combine.
- Top pancakes with crumb mixture and extra maple syrup on top!
