Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Pumpkin Cream Pancakes with Coconut Flour


This is exciting…. a Halloween-themed (gluten-free) pancake reminiscent of my most favorite childhood sandwich cookie. Pumpkin cream stuffed between chocolate pancakes! Made with coconut flour, these pancakes taste almost like a cupcake. Coconut flour (high in both fiber and protein) can be a bit crumbly, so I’ve added a bit of tapioca starch as a binder.

No extra syrup necessary. Enjoy.
