Pumpkin Pancakes


If you have not jumped on the pumpkin loving bandwagon yet, get on it! Even though you can buy canned pumpkin all year round, I only feel appropriate eating it in the fall! This is really crazy, but I also feel this way about mini eggs. Even though you can buy them all year round now, they are only meant to be consumed at Easter! Anyways, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, the air is crisp, and it’s time to start incorporating pumpkin into my diet.

IMG_0731I made these pancakes when we had breakfast for dinner one night last week. They are really good, and definitely had that pumpkin-y taste that you get from pumpkin pie, or pumpkin muffins. If you don’t like pumpkin pie, it doesn’t mean you don’t like pumpkin! Give these a try, and I promise you will be happy 🙂

I followed the recipe exactly, other than substituting nutmeg for the allspice. I also used half whole wheat, half all purpose flour, but you could use all of one or the other.  I might add some chocolate chips next time, and will probably cut the recipe in half because this made about 8 big  pancakes.

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree IMG_0747
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine milk, pumpkin puree, egg, canola oil, and vinegar in a medium sized bowl. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and salt.

Add dry mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix to combine. Let mixture rest for about 5 minutes while preparing pan or griddle. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan or griddle over medium to high heat.

Pour batter onto the heated surface, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Flip when uncooked side starts to show bubbles, and cook through on opposite side.
