Recipe: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes [paleo]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes with maple syrup & (real) butter
Who doesn't love pancakes? Unfortunately most pancakes are made with flour and milk, which is unhealthy and will just make you hungry in a few hours. 

Pumpkin is great to eat this time of year, as it contains a lot of potassium which can help lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a stroke.

These gluten-free pancakes are filled with protein and are dairy-free. With the added benefits of pumpkin, here is a healthy breakfast (or dinner!) for kids and adults.
