Pumpkin Spiced Pancakes with Biotiful Dairy Kefir

It’s Autumn and this means one thing, pumpkin spiced everything!!

I created these gluten free pumpkin spiced pancakes on a weekend and topped with the glorious Biotiful Dairy Kefir. I was challenged by Biotiful Diary to make simple swaps with my food, to add more kefir to my diet. This is an example of a way of using kefir in a sweet dish.

Kefir is full of good bacteria for your gut, is high in protein and has no added sugar. It really is the dream!!


  • 2 Cups Gluten Free Flour
  • 3 Teaspoons Gluten Free Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons Vitalite Melted (or any df butter)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Almond Milk


  1. Preheat griddle or large non-stick skillet to medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together both of the sugars, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, eggs, melted butter, and milk.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. The batter will be lumpy, do not over mix.
  5. Set the batter aside for 5 minutes.
  6. Butter your griddle or spray with non-stick cooking spray if desired. Pour out 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake and spread into a circle.
  7. Cook each pancake for approximately 4 minutes per side.
  8. Serve pancakes with butter, syrup, whipped cream, nuts or any other favorite toppings.
