Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

photo 2It’s October and like everyone else, we are loving pumpkin errythhanngg. Luckily, pumpkins and other similar squash, like our obsession:kabocha, are in season, making delicious pumpkiny treats an easy and local thing to make! So, in the spirit of the season, this weeks #sustainabilitysunday is featuring pumpkin and one other local ingredient!

These pancakes are made with local pumpkin and local, pasture raised eggs, making them not only completely local (unless you decide to add spices), but they are also paleo friendly! Plus, you get to use the pumpkin seeds to make a delicious snack of pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds or flavor them with simply sea salt!

Check out some of our favorite ways to prepare pumpkin seeds and other squash seeds!

Ingredient Spotlight:kabocha squash and pumpkins

Pumpkin is fabulous for your health because it is loaded with nutrients, especially considering it is super low in calories. It is high in Vitamins A, C, and E as well as the minerals Copper, Calcium, Potassium, and Phosphorus. It’s orange color is also significant because it shows that it is loaded with the important antioxidant beta-carotene (aka vitamin A).
