Pumpkin Spice Pancakes with Maple Yogurt Sauce

Good morning loves and happy Pancake Sunday!

A couple of weeks ago, a little Nerdy Birdy asked me if I could whip up a batch of pancakes that would satisfy her cravings for the wonderful flavors of fall, yet not leave her gluten-intolerant tummy upset with her.

No grain? No Pain? No Problem! 😉

Filled with pumpkin spice and EVERYTHING things nice, you’d never even guess that they’re grain free!
