Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes - The Perfect Morning Tradition
I often stop to think about traditions that my kids will remember. As parents, we do so many things with them that it can all start to get jumbled a bit...
One tradition that I hope that they'll remember as they get older and go out into the world, is the tradition of pumpkin pancakes during the Fall mornings.
I love thinking about all the chilly mornings that I'd wake up early to start making pumpkin pancakes to be ready for them when they wake up. Just seeing the smiles on their faces was the perfect reaction for me each and every time.
As long as they keep loving these pumpkin pancakes, I'll keep making them over and over again. If you like this recipe, you'll also like our Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes!

One of the other reasons that I really enjoy these pancakes is that they are not only super simple to make, but they freeze easily, too!
When you find that you have several busy weekends coming up and you're worried about getting healthy food into the tummies of your little ones, make a double batch one weekend and freeze them for a later need.
If you find that you have a need for a couple pancakes on the go, simply grab out a couple and let them thaw! Your kids will love having the flavor of pumpkin while they're traveling down the road!
Seriously, don't delay in making these pancakes for you and your family! Pairing them with a cup of coffee and good conversation is the perfect way to spend any morning of each and every day!
