Fall in love with pumpkin and cranberry pancakes

Author Byline Image   It seems I just can’t get enough of pumpkin this time of year. Or cranberries. I see no reason to reserve pumpkins and cranberries for the Thanksgiving table when they go really well on the breakfast table as well – in the form of pancakes.
   These grain-free pancakes are packed with fall flavor – the perfect start to any day.
   Unlike pancakes made with wheat flour where you cook them over higher heat, you want to cook these babies low and slow. Be a little patient and the payoff will be well worth it.
   But what are pancakes without syrup? Pancakes without syrup are like peanut butter without jelly, grilled cheese
Gluten-Free Pumpkin and Cranberry Pancakes
Makes 12
4 large eggs, separated
1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1½ cups almond flour
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons organic pancake syrup, plus more for serving
1 cup dried cranberries
Gluten free non-stick cooking spray or oil
   Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
   In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, pumpkin, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and syrup.
   Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Take a scoop of the beaten egg whites and stir it into the pumpkin mixture. Fold in the remaining egg whites until the batter is no longer streaky. Fold in the dried cranberries.
   Heat a skillet over medium-low heat until a drop of water sizzles when splashed on the skillet. Spray the skillet with cooking spray or brush with oil. Ladle about 1/3 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until the bottom of the pancake is browned and the top looks dry around the edges, about 6 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until the bottoms are browned and the pancakes are cooked through, about 6 – 7 minutes. Keep warm in oven and repeat until all batter is cooked.
