Pumpkin Coconut Flour Pancakes

Hello from the ridiculous polar vortex in the Northeast..I’m so over this horrific winter. I’ve had a lingering cold for over a month and am sick of sniffling all the time. Summer –  you can come on down anytime now. Anyway, here’s another recipe for you guys. Since I have cans of pumpkin hoarded from the Fall, it’s a past-due pumpkin recipe and also another coconut flour pancake recipe to add to the collection. I made these a while ago but am just posting the recipe. They turned out a lovely orange color  from the pumpkin and the egg yolk. Hope you like them!
