You can tell that it’s autumn when pumpkin spice everything comes out. I have to admit, I absolutely love pumpkin spice, so making it into pancakes just seems like the right thing to do. So why not use the flavors in pancakes?
I use white chia seeds for making my chia egg. I don’t notice any difference in the texture of the pancakes compared to an egg. UPDATE: In making this again I used a flax egg, use the same proportions as the chia egg, but substitute flax meal in place of the chia seeds.
It’s really easy to make pumpkin pie spice, but if you don’t want to make it, you can buy it at any grocery store. After adding the dry ingredients to the wet, you have to let it rest for at least 10 minutes. Resting any gluten-free batter or dough will make your dish turn out better. These pancakes do take a little longer than regular pancakes to cook, but it is so worth it. Cook and enjoy!
