Pumpkin pancakes are delicious any time of year :)

on January 21, 2012

   Yes it is snowing here in New Jersey, but we love pumpkin pancakes ANY time of the year!  These were my kids’ request but they are definitely a Kelly Family favorite.  The best part is that they have no idea all the healthy stuff that’s in them 🙂 And with the added sweetness of the pumpkin, they really don’t even need syrup (but if you do want syrup, please use 100% maple 🙂 )

  • 1 eggs, 1 egg white lightly beaten
  • 2 cups low fat buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 can pumpkin (must be 100% pumpkin, NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3/4 finely ground flax seed
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein (optional, you can use any protein you want or leave it out)
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla ( I like this to make the protein flavor)
  1. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, pumpkin and buttermilk. Stir in baking soda, flax seed, protein, salt, flour, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and vanilla; mix until blended.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides, turning once. Makes 10 pancakes.

ENJOY!!!
