AK canning jar

Before we attached my blog to this site, I had this recipe posted.  I guess I must never have transfered it over again.  Oops!  It’s that pumpkin-y time of year again and my mom wanted me to post it.  I guess you can’t say “No” to your mom!

I am making these pancakes today with the girls topped with a mixture of cooked apples, maple syrup and cinnamon.   Maybe some chopped toasted pecans also.  I wonder what my son is having at boy scout camp…

This recipe doesn’t need eggs as the pumpkin keeps everything bound together, tender, and tasty.

The Recipe: Pumpkin Waffles or Pancakes


  • 1 3/4 cup bean based flour blend, or 6 T garbonzo bean/fava bean flour, 1/4 c sorghum flour, 9 T potato or corn starch, and 9 T tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • 2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum
  • 1 tablespoon sucanate, maple syrup, maple sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin, or fresh pumpkin, cooked and mashed
  • 1 1/4 cup dairy-free milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla flavoring or extract


  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix the first five ingredients well. In a blender or
  • separate bowl, blend the sweetener, oil, pumpkin, dairy-free milk and vanilla until

  • Alternate: Make pancakes instead instead of waffles in a lightly oiled pan.
  • To freeze: Allow waffles to cool completely. Put in freezer bag, separating waffles with waxed paper. Remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
  • To serve: Toast waffles until warmed through.
