Pumpkin Crumb Pancakes

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.

Pumpkin Crumb Pancakes with Nuts.com

  • Yield: 14 three inch pancakes 1x



For the pancakes

For the crumb topping


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Top pancakes with crumb mixture and extra maple syrup on top!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Holy Ship is in January! (www.holyship.com)
    No Deorro, but a ton of other amazing artists on the lineup. And, it’s still a cruise to the Bahamas…which is never a bad thing 🙂

  2. These look great Julie!

    How many servings is this recipe?

    Also, I have never used tapioca flour. Can I sub anything?

    Thanks so much!!

  3. I am 100% on board with your no-gift policy for Christmas. I brought it up last year with my family (I’m not brave enough to bring it up with my husband’s family) and I was shut down hardcore. I’m thinking I’ll just keep trying every year until it’s passed or until they get the idea.
    Also, I’m pregnant right now, which is hilarious that you bring up babies. I read your blog everyday/listen to your podcasts – so it just seems fitting that you brought it up in your podcast about your hubs over the weekend (which I absolutely LOVED – thanks for sharing!) It’s hard being pregnant when you’re normally athletic. It’s definitely been more of a challenge than I anticipated, but every time I see the little nugget on the ultrasound machine, it’s 100% worth it!
    Oh, and on the note about your podcast about your husband, you mentioned several times that you didn’t know if people would want to hear your story, and I wanted to tell you that there are people who do! Like me! 🙂

    1. i got shut down the first time but i keep pushing. last year we did an elephant gift exchange and everyone brought 1 gift for under $50 and it was just funny and easy! try that maybe?! and thank you for leaving this comment, it’s really really cool to hear that people actually enjoy something I’m talking about and gets me excited to record the next one! i’m doing a podcast all about kids soon and those fears haha not sure you’ll enjoy it since you’re pregnant, but you may connect on some of those levels!

      1. I can’t wait! And I’m sure I’ll love it. I still have all of those same fears – I’m just dealing with them …later! lol!

  4. I have come to the point where I am comfortable fully embracing my basic-ness in enjoying everything Pumpkin and Pumpkin Spice, and wearing really comfortable fUgg boots this time of year. I can be a bad ass 95% of the time, sometimes you just need comfort! Thank you for the pancake recipe! My Dad and his siblings decided years ago to forgo gift giving (5 of them + spouses and kids) and buy dinner and gifts for a local family in need. They have done it for years and it eliminates the need to get gifts for like 20 million people.

  5. Got to tell you that nuts.com is the BEST! I’ve been buying nuts, spices and coffee from them for years and now I won’t buy those things anywhere else. Their flavored coffees are awesome! These pancakes look sooooo yummy, I think they are going to be on the menu this weekend.

  6. No gifts, AMEN! We are definitely trying to get both families on board…it’s kinda working? I’m so tired of keeping stuff in my house for a year pretending I’ll use it when really, we buy the stuff we need and want. I’d rather have/save money for doing stuff, not buying stuff.

  7. I can’t wait to make these! Thanks for sharing yet another FREE recipe. I loved the podcast about how you met your husband! Love all your posts and laugh at the haters who feel the need to comment about your awesome sense of style (the long sweater with the slit – LOVE IT!!) Keep doing you girl! YOU ROCK!

  8. OMG these pancakes look delicious! thanks for the recipe. And I am the same way about gifts. I’m not big on surrounding the holiday consumed about getting or receiving gifts. My family puts all the money together and decide on someone who needs it more than us. Love your blog 🙂

  9. HI JB, I’m so on board with the no gifts. I’m so sick of my house being full of stuff I never really wanted. I read the “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and finally got my household organised so I don’t really want to be gifted some more crap I never wanted.
    I’m also pregnant- two months away from having Baby #2- its so much different the second time around and NOT terrifying.

  10. tried to make these without eggs…LMAO FAIL! you mention you have issues with eggs sometimes… do you find they don’t bother you when you bake with them ?
    pregnant, basic, and allergic to everything delicious

  11. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait to make this. It combines my two favorite things: pumpkin and pancakes! Plus the crumbly topping looks lush!!

  12. Hi Juli, can’t wait to try this recipe! I love the pancake recipe in your book so I’m sure this one is 10/10 too. Random question: do you melt the ghee before combining it with all the crumb toppings or just leave it solid? Thanks!

  13. Let us know how it goes in getting the family on board with ‘no gifts’. This has been bothering me for years now; ll the STUFF that gets purchased and we don’t even really need it! I save money all year to pay for Christmas and I know it affects the budgets of both of our families too… it just seems silly. Do you have any ideas for what to do in place of gifts, ie new traditions, or how you decide to cut back. Also, are you going to try to implement the same plan with your husbands family?

    1. i think it will be pretty easy at this point because none of us have kids. but we have gotten family into it by doing an elephant gift exchange and putting price limit at $50. it’s interactive and fun on christmas day!

  14. Birthing things….hahaha . I feel the same way! My son is 5 and we’re not planning on more kids, and I feel like I can’t even keep up with how many kids my friends have! Lol. We did get a puppy so I guess a fur baby counts for something 😉

  15. I must try these! I love pumpkin and this looks so simple. Bonus: I have all of these ingredients in my house already! Love your blog Juli!

  16. I recently tried nuts.com and fell in love with their products! The almond milk has some of the lowest sugar and neutral taste! Also the organic cocoa dusted dark chocolate almonds are amazing!

  17. Delicious pancakes , love all your pancake recipes, big thumbs up from my husband.
    Are you going to try the birthing thing? You would look cute modeling maternity!
    Wondering, Blessed mother of five

  18. First, what a clever name for your blog!

    I tend to buy the pumpkin pancake mix from Trader Joes, though I am absolutely interested in trying to make them from scratch, do you think it would be possible to do these with just egg whites? Or are yolks necessary too? I’ve been trying to skip the fatty yolks whenever possible!

    Curious as to what you think! Thanks for posting! Cheers!

  19. Hey Juli!
    I just read your “THANKSGIVING NO-BAKE PUMPKIN PIE GINGERBREAD TRIFLES” and I love pumpkin. I’m so happy I found another recipe on pumpkins! Every Sunday my family has pancakes for breakfast and I’m excited to impress my family with this awesome recipe. This would be super fun making with friends after a sleepover. I this would be very well served with whip cream and Nutella on top. Looking at these makes my so hungry.

  20. Hi Juli,

    We tried these pancakes this morning, and they didn’t cook all the way through even though we cooked them for longer than you recommended. Did you have any issues when you were testing this recipe? We have had nothing but success with the rest of your recipes, so I wonder if we missed something? On a happier note, the crumb topping turned out perfectly!

    1. no issues on my end whatsoever making this recipe! it’s hard to know what went wrong since i wasn’t there. i’m sorry! i wish i could help more but since i don’t have more details it’s hard to know…
