Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

The Best Recipe for Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Alison Needham
These cozy pancakes taste as good as pie. Sometimes I shape them into pumpkins or leaves by using a piping bag, bottle, or a zip-top bag with one corner snipped off. Cooking gluten free pancakes requires patience and they need to be cooked for a bit longer at a lower temperature than regular pancakes so that they aren't gooey in the middle. If you find that the outsides are cooking faster than the insides, adjust the temperature down and give them a bit more time on the griddle. If you aren't gluten free, simply use regular, all-purpose flour and omit the xanthan gum.

  • Griddle or large skillet



  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat a griddle over medium low heat. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin puree, eggs and melted butter. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of oil on the griddle and spread with a paper towel. Pour batter, a ¼ cup at a time, onto the griddle to make dollar-sized pancakes. Top each with a few chocolate chips, if desired.
  • When the pancakes bubble and the edges look dry after about 3-4 minutes, flip and continue cooking on the other side for 2-3 minutes longer, or until cooked all the way through.
  • Remove to a serving tray, cover with foil and set in the oven to keep warm while you make another batch. If the pancakes are cooking too quickly, turn down the heat. Re-oil griddle as necessary. Serve hot with warm maple syrup or whipped cream and chocolate chips.
