Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

 

Pumpkin spice is one of the best flavors of the season. Unfortunately, many common pumpkin spice recipes are full unhealthy sugars and other additives that make them unhealthy for frequent eating. We worked hard to find a healthy and tasty pumpkin spice recipe for you to enjoy all season long.

1 cup of all-purpose gluten-free flour

 

⅓ cup ground pecans

½ tsp allspice

 

1 tsp dried ground ginger

 

1½ cups almond milk

 

1 cup pumpkin purée
