Gluten free Pumpkin Pancakes

1 1/2 cups canned light coconut milk OR other milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pre-seasoned or sweetened pumpkin pie filling)
3 eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil OR Coconut oil
2 tablespoons Bragg apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour (preferably without added xanthan or guar gum)
4 tablespoons brown sugar (easily made yourself or use Sucanant, I even used raw honey)
1/2 teaspoon natural unrefined salt
2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder (or make your own)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon guar gum OR xanthan gum (OMIT if you are using a GF all-purpose flour mix that contains xanthan or guar gum) info here (I personally did not use either of these when I made these pancakes, so at least for me these are optional)
Extra oil for cooking pancakes

Mix together, heat griddle to med/high.

Spoon on desired amount of batter on the greased griddle, allow pancake to cook until the little bubbles start popping, then flip.

Use real butter or raw coconut oil, or do a mixture of olive oil & raw coconut oil spread (recipe below)

Update from Erika 7-2013: I’ve replaced the brown sugar with coconut sugar or honey – to make it vegan sub with egg replacer and use a DF butter like all natural soy free Earth Balance. 🙂 Glad everyone like it!

Healthy oil spread for butter & margarine replacement:  This is great to replace margarine on any foods (or replace butter), simply mix 1 to 2 tbsp. of olive oil with 1 cup of solid coconut oil, mix together in a bowl or jar with a hand mixer until creamy. Spread on toast, on pancakes, in oatmeal, in smoothies etc. For a sweet Honey version add 1 tbsp. of raw honey, 1 tbsp. of olive oil to the solid coconut oil.
