Grain-Free Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Honey Syrup

Pancakes are a favorite at our house, and with pumpkins in season, I knew it was time to have pumpkin pancakes!

These pancakes are delicious on their own, but do NOT skip the syrup. It is the crowning jewel of this recipe and I’m telling you, you need this syrup in your life.

Grain-Free Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Honey Syrup

Yield: 10-12 small pancakes


    For the Pancakes
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk or whole milk + more if batter is too thick
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil + more for cooking pancakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • For the Syrup:
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


    For the Pancakes:
  1. Heat a griddle to medium heat.
  2. Whisk eggs, pumpkin, honey, milk, butter, and vanilla together until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix coconut flour, baking soda, and spices together until combined.
  4. Mix dry ingredient in with wet ingredients. The batter will be very thick, but you can add more milk if needed.
  5. Grease the griddle with coconut oil or butter.
  6. Spoon the batter onto the griddle and flatten and shape the pancakes. Try to keep them small (bigger than silver dollar pancakes but smaller than traditional pancakes).
  7. Cook a few minutes until lightly browned, then flip and cook the other side for about a minute, or until cooked through. Do not walk away, they can burn easily.
  8. For the Syrup:
  9. To make the syrup, heat the honey, butter, and cinnamon in a small sauce pan over low heat until melted. Stir frequently.
  10. Top pancakes with butter and syrup.

  1. I have never cooked with coconut oil before. I have heard of its health benefits. These pancakes sound good. I think I like the syrup best!

    I would love it if you would stop by my blog on Friday and link up a few of your recipes!

    I am now following yur facebook!

  2. Delicious! Can’t wait to make these. Visiting from Hearth & Soul blog hop :)

  3. Oooh, these look absolutely delish and I love the addition of coconut oil and coconut flour! I’m on a huge pumpkin kick this year and these sound just perfect. That syrup is so different and much healthier than the standard sugar-based syrups too, so I can’t wait to make these this weekend!

    Thanks for linking up to Tiny Tip Tuesday – I’m pinning and sharing on FB :)

  4. I would love to make these with white flour. Is the flour exchange 1/2 c coconut = 1/2 c white??

  12. I just made these this morning — yum! I only had 3 eggs, so I had to add a little more liquid, but they still turned out okay. I think the fourth egg would’ve helped them hold together a little better, but in a pinch, three worked well enough. Definitely a keeper recipe! :)

  13. I made these today for my birthday breakfast. They were delicious and my daughters (7 and 10) loved them, as well! Thank you for sharing this delicious treat!

  14. I adore paleo food, because it is healthy and still yummy. So i decided to start paleo diet (this time i mean it). If you were to buy one book to give to a friend on Paleo, what would it be? please please recommend a good one :) Thank you!
