Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes
my recipe was inspired by www.motherthyme.com/2011/09/whole-wheat-pumpkin-pancakes.html
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I only had apple pie spice, so I used 1 1/4 tsp of that along with 1/4 tsp of ginger - use what you have, but pumpkin pie spice is just primarily cinnamon with nutmeg and ginger added)
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 large egg, beaten
2 T of oil (I used olive oil, but any oil is fine)
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, including the spices and sugar, until well combined. I always like to use a whisk. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, oil, and pumpkin puree.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
or with your favorite pancake topping, such as syrup pictured below. Enjoy!!!
