Pumpkin Pancakes!


These are my new favorite pancakes. I LOVE pretty much all things pumpkin (btw pumpkin pancakes at Cinotti’s this Friday!!!!) I load up on cans of pumpkin puree during fall so that I have access to it all year just in case I get a craving!

You can find the original recipe for these pancakes here. I made a couple of little changes, using whole wheat flour, apple cider vinegar instead of plain & adding flax.

The recycled recipe:

  • 11/2 c milk
  • 1 c pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (+ more for the skillet)
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp flax
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Heat the skillet to medium low and mix the dry ingredients with the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients with the wet ingredients.
Then mix them all together!
Using a 1/3 c measuring cup cook 1-2 pancakes at a time making sure not to burn them. If they are cooking too fast and not all the way through, reduce the heat. These tend to puff up and be a little thick so you want to try to make them pretty thin when you first put them on the griddle to make sure they cook all the way through.
Mmmm enjoy with some delicious butter and natural syrup- welcome fall!!!
