Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

These pancakes are OMG GOOOOOOD!

I’m not so sure how my friend ended up making me pancakes on her birthday weekend, but wow, they were delish.
Light and tasty, yet hearty and easy to make! Served with a choice of almond butter, apple butter or pure maple syrup, a side of mixed green salad and a cup of bulletproof coffee… makes for a perfect Sunday breakfast. ~Dr. Jackson
