Pumpkin pancakes are so easy to make — you only need a blender or hand mixer and a skillet. To keep it keto, serve with a generous helping of grass-fed butter or ghee. (You could also drizzle maple syrup for a paleo-friendly topping, but enjoy that for special occasions and don’t use it every day.) Serve pumpkin pancakes with low-carb drinks like original Bulletproof Coffee or warming bone broth for a cozy keto and paleo breakfast.

You only need a few simple ingredients to cook up these sweet and spiced keto pumpkin pancakes. Top with butter for a luxurious breakfast.

Note on ingredients: Except for coconut, all nuts are considered “suspect” on the Bulletproof Diet because of their high levels of omega-6 fats that can oxidize and contribute to inflammation. Nuts are also susceptible to mold and contain lectins, nutrient-sapping compounds that can be tough on your gut. Use nuts in moderation, or remove them from your diet and reintroduce in small amounts to test your sensitivity. Flax meal can be harsh on your stomach, so enjoy in moderation (and grind it fresh to reduce fat oxidation).
