Fall is almost here making these pumpkin spice keto pancakes a great seasonal treat. Low carb pancakes made with coconut flour and completely grain free!
Let me say I love pumpkin spice!
I haven’t came around to apple yet but pumpkin is a winner in my book. Pumpkin Halo Top, pumpkin spice Oreo’s, pumpkin spice fudge strips and pumpkin spice latte’s!
Yes, in case you were wondering I have a problem. Yet, I haven’t had anything pumpkin spice on keto. But, today all that changes. Because I created my very own pumpkin spice keto pancakes. Did I mention the cream cheese icing?
Now, I said I would hold off on the sweets for a while. In all honesty I wouldn’t call these a sweet. There is sweetener inside the cream cheese of course. Due to the spices in the low carb pancakes the sweetness is dumbed down. What you are left with is tangy cream cheese and pumpkin spice flavoring.
These would be perfect for a keto breakfast recipe during a late September morning.
Pumpkin Spice Keto Pancakes
Let’s talk texture!
Due to the dryness of the coconut flour the pumpkin puree does wonders. What you’re left with is a very moist low carb pancake. See in gluten free flours this isn’t common. Especially when cooking with coconut flour. The more moisture the better.
Surprisingly they don’t give off a huge pumpkin spice fragrance. I was a little disappointed at first. But when the taste was there I became uplifted quickly.
But, when these moist pancakes hit my palate they were in a league of their own. A pumpkin spice league of course. No ginger or cinnamon roll flavor at all. I had succeeded!
The cream cheese brought so much balance. Feel free to add a sugar free maple syrup if you’d like. Making this recipe dairy free if using the unsweetened almond milk. But, I think cream cheese and pumpkin spices flavor profiles are a better fit. Not too sweet, yet absolutely full of flavor.
Pumpkin spice season is here! And the arrival of my pumpkin spice keto pancakes are just what you’ve been looking for. Low carb pancakes get a bad rep for the dryness or funny texture. These are far from dry, I promise. Topped with my cream cheese icing or a sugar free maple syrup of your choice. Keto breakfast this fall with be something special!
