Troy’s Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe


I am obsessed with pancakes, I make them everyday.

I’m always trying different recipes and this is one of my absolute favourites.

These are super quick and easy to make, gluten free, low carb and high protein pancakes so give them a try.

pumpkinPumpkin is extremely high in fibre so tread carefully if you have IBD.

Pumpkin also packs an abundance of disease-fighting nutrients, including:

  • potassium,
  • pantothenic acid,
  • magnesium, and
  • vitamins C and E,

making pumpkin a “Superfood”.”  – Troy
