  • 1 cup butternut squash Cooked or raw and peeled/chopped. Approx 1 small squash
  • 2 cups walnuts soaked and dehydrated, 'crispy walnuts'
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or tallow, to fry


  1. In a blender, blend squash, walnuts, salt, and eggs until smooth. Heat a skillet on medium-low heat and melt tallow or ghee.
  2. Use a spoon to gently spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into the heated pan with the melted fat.
  3. Flip with a small spatula once bubbles start to appear on the top and a few have popped, about 2 minutes. Cook on the other side for another minute or so, or until the edges start to appear firm.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Recipe Notes

Start with just 1-2 of these pancakes and see how you do with egg whites. If egg whites are not tolerated, these pancakes can be made with yolks only; just double the amount of yolks and omit whites
