It’s that time of year again when everything turns into pumpkin spice. Pumpkin is very nutritious and a great source of fiber and vitamins. Please enjoy these Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, they are good for you!
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons of cinnamon
4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 teaspoons brown sugar, it was at my reach and granular was not
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup of milk, or more if you find the batter too thick
1/4 oil, vegetable or canola is fine
1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée, not pie filling
Pure Maple Syrup, optional
Whip Cream, optional
Chopped pecans, optional
Whisk all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients together. Prepare your griddle or pan with butter or nonstick spray. Using a 1/4 cup measure, measure your pancakes and cook pancakes about 1-2 minutes on each side, until desired color is achieved. These pancakes do not have bubbles on top before you flip them so make sure you watch them before they burn. Top with butter and warm maple syrup, nuts or whip cream. Enjoy!
You will have extra pumpkin leftover. Save it and make a smoothie, save it for more pancakes or give a healthy treat to your dogs and cats. My pups got a teaspoon each tonight and they love it.
