best pumpkin pancakes yet, happy-joy!

Moni Pumpkin Pancakes

These are just…Delicious. You can serve with in-season fresh fruit, honey, or syrup and powdered sugarThis is a great breakfast treat on a crisp, Fall morning. I absolutely love to top them off with a few mini chocolate chips. I do this right at the end so they slowly melt over…hmmm. I also like to slather a spoonful of almond or peanut butter for the last touch because I do that with all my pancakes.  What kid would not love these, right?

I had some lovely Persimmons too (in-season now) so that is what I paired them up with as well but I love apples too.  It is all about the season of Fall and using what is available!

Servings

6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp of Pumpkin Spice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 egg whites and 1 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey, or agave is fine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk of choice, I use vanilla almond
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbs worth of mini chocolate chips for topping, optional
  • a spoonful of almond or peanut butter for topping, optional

Directions

  1. Whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin spice, and salt in bowl.
  2. Beat eggs and honey (or agave)  in separate bowl. Whisk in milk, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture-(I like to use a spatula.)
  3. Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray (or lightly use coconut oil- which I do all the time too) over med-high heat. Scoop 2/3 cup batter onto skillet for each pancake. Cook 3 mins and look for bubbles to form in the middle. Flip and cook 2-3 mins more until browned on both sides. Serve warm and enjoy.
  4. (Again, I use almond or peanut butter for the last flavor explosion, sprinkled with mini chocolate chips-(optional) and then serve with in-season fresh fruit!)
