  • 160 g Pumpkin puree
  • 125 g Chickpea flour

  • To make homemade pumpkin puree, preheat the oven to 165°C. Cut a small cooking pumpkin in half and remove all the seeds. Sprinkle the inside of the pumpkin with a little bit of salt and place them skin side up (flesh side down) on a baking tray. Cook at least 1 hour and let cool before scraping the flesh out with a spoon. Finally blend it in a food processor for a smoother consistency
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, eggs, apple sauce and vanilla extract until smooth
  • Mix in the flours, baking powder and spices until smooth and there are no flour clumps remaining
  • Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes and heat a large skillet on medium/high heat and add a little ghee, butter or oil to the skillet and grease well
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of batter to the pan to form a pancake and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side on low heat
  • Continue with the rest of the batter
  • Top with anything you would like, coconut cream, Greek yogurt, fruits, nuts
