Most mornings I head out early for a run and grab an energy or protein bar before I go. When I get home I usually grab a cup of greek yogurt and fresh fruit. Or a smoothie. Same old, same old.

I do like variety once in awhile, and this breakfast was a nice change. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I want to make it a good one!

The pumpkin coconut pancakes can be made ahead of time and frozen. I pop them into the toaster on the highest setting and finish helping the kids get ready and off to school post-run while my pancakes cook.

I owe the credit to this recipe to Gina of Running to the Kitchen who came up with this recipe. She went through a lot of work and trouble to come up with this amazing recipe. I owe her a big thank you because I’ve tried a lot of nasty “healthy” ¬†pumpkin pancake recipes. This recipe is gluten free, grain free, and paleo. And these pancakes look and TASTE like pancakes! Grab these healthy pancakes for your breakfast this week.
