Pumpkin pancakes

I’ve never made anything but plain or blueberry pancakes before, but I had a half a can of pumpkin in the fridge so I decided to try some pumpkin pancakes.   I have two little ones at home with a cold, so I thought something kinda healthy but fun would be a good RX.  The flavor of these is like pumpkin pie!  And with some maple syrup (real, not fake) on top, these were fantastic!

Pumpkin pie pancakes

Makes about 4 pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (click for recipe if you don’t have on hand)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cooking spray

Mix together dry ingredients in one bowl.  In another bowl, mix together canned pumpkin, milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla.  Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix together until there are no more dry spots.  Do not over- mix.

Heat skillet on medium heat.  Spray with cooking spray and pour batter onto pan.  When the pancake starts bubbling and the edges start to set, flip.  Repeat with rest of batter.

Enjoy!

  1. Yummy, seasonal pancakes.

  2. Looks yummy! I guess I would have to double the recipe with my hungry teenage boys. (4 pancakes would just be an appetizer for them)
