Keto, Low-carb and Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

You are not a failure!

Maybe you are new to the ketogenic diet and lifestyle, you probably have a long list of failed diets behind you.

So you might think: here is another fad diet, another one that will not work…

That is because so many other diets have failed you!

You did not fail, they failed YOU!

First because they were unsustainable in many different ways: you were always hungry, tired, frustrated…that is why you ended up falling off the wagon.

Second and most important: THEY WERE NOT DESIGNED FOR YOU!

Is keto for me?

Let em ask you 3 simple questions:

1) Do you ever crave sugar?

2) Do you have energy up and downs throughout the day?

3) Do you get very hungry if you skip a meal?

If you said yes to at least 2 of these 3 questions you are a good candidate for a ketogenic diet.

Keto means to never feel deprived.

Once you are eating the keto way, you can kiss the hunger goodbye! And the cravings! And the mid-day slump!

But the best part yet…

You will be able to eat your favorite foods…just with a few modifications. They will still taste great and keep you satiated and happy!

This Keto and Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes recipe is a great example. Make it for your family and they will not even notice that it’s a “health food”!

PS In case you would like to know more about grain substitutes of a keto and low-carb diet, read this post!

  1. Is there any chance I could use without the pumpkin puree and nut flours and still be able to make a pancake?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Yes Linda, the pumpkin is just for flavor!! 🙂

  2. kirstenvt says:

    Made these pancakes for dinner tonight!!! YUM! Pumpkin was from our garden!

  3. Amber Vargo says:

    Can I do this with any nut flour? I have almond flour but hazelnuts are harder to find

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Yes you can, I like the nuttiness of the hazelnut flour…and it’s lower carb 😉

  4. June says:

    What can I substitute for the Chai Masala Powder? Don’t really want to spend $17 for one ingredient.

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      June you can make your own with cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon…should be good enough!

      • Betty says:

        I see you can use your own spices instead of the mix. I have pumpkin pie spice in the cabinet and also garham marsala spice. Could you use either of those? Lastly I was wondering if you could make a Chai tea with the garham marsala? I also have almond flour. Can’t wait to try.

        • The Nourished Caveman says:

          Yes you totally can use both! You can also try to put a pinch of the garham marsala in your tea to see if you like it. Use black tea as a base! (like in India!)

  5. Cindy says:

    Is there a flour you would suggest in place of nut flour for those with tree nut allergies?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      You can make sunflower seed flour or sesame seed flour in a vitamix or in a coffee grinder….I have not tried it for this recipe but it could work 🙂
