Gluten-Free Flour Friday: Pumpkin Cornbread Pancakes

pumpkin pancakes

Time for another delcious gluten-free pancake recipe. Today I’m using corn flour to create tasty pumpkin pancakes. Corn flour is another great option for gluten-free baking; it imparts a delicious flavor in your baked goods and is rich in fiber, niacin, folate, thiamin, riboflavin, and iron. You can make corn flour at home by grinding corn meal in a spice grinder or food processor.

I’ve topped these pancakes with a yummy pumpkin (vegan) cream cheese spread. To make, mix pumpkin puree with a vegan cream cheese alternative, add some stevia to sweeten and finish with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
