Need a recipe to use up leftover canned pumpkin? These gluten free low carb pumpkin pancakes made with almond flour are a nice breakfast treat.
Some recipes do not use a whole can of pumpkin. So, what do you do with the extra pumpkin puree?
I tried putting a little in my coffee and sprinkling pumpkin pie spice on top. That was pretty good, but it didn’t use up much of the leftovers.
I searched for ideas on the internet and found some pumpkin pancake and waffle recipes. I wasn’t really into pulling out the waffle maker so I made some low carb pumpkin pancakes with almond flour.

The spices may be a bit much and the sweetener not quite enough in these low carb pumpkin pancakes for some. Let me know in the post comments if you have any other ideas for using up the leftover pumpkin puree.
Low Carb Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes
Mix together almond flour, spices, salt, and baking powder. Stir in the rest of the ingredients until well combined.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto pan and cook on medium heat, flipping each pancake once to cook each side.
