Pumpkin Pancakes

Hi Everyone,

I hope I am not over killing the pumpkin lately, but I have lots of leftovers and I need to use it up and what better way to use pumpkin then to make light, fluffy, healthy pumpkin pancakes?

I made these pancakes Saturday morning for Little Jenny and I.  I figured it’s been a while since I made pancakes and I know how much Little Jenny loves pumpkin.  Here reaction?  Oh man, these are good!  She devoured them in no time!!  By the time I was done taking pictures, her pancakes were gone.  I got the idea for these pancakes from my original whole wheat pumpkin pancakes that I posted my first week of blogging.  Looking back, what horrible pictures I took!  Eck!  I’m surprise anyone visited my blog.  :)

The best way to describe these pancakes is like pumpkin pie.  There creamy, moist, light and very filling!!!  This batch made 6 pancakes and the calories for 3 of them is only 157 calories!!  You can’t go wrong with those calories!!  Mmmm, pumpkin!  I am so loving it right now!  I need to get out of the fall mode since it is still summer!!

Don’t the pancakes look so much better dressed up and drenched in sweet maple syrup and topped with a little dollop of whip cream?  Oh yah Baby!!  Muah!!

After looking at these photos and thinking about my pancakes I think I need to make more.  Since I don’t have time in the morning to make pancakes, I’m thinking one night for dinner! I love eating breakfast at dinner.  I have to say breakfast is probably my favorite meal! I love it!  So many variations of dishes you can make. What is your favorite meal?

Well my Friends, while it is still light out I need to go pick some tomatoes from the garden.  I saw a bean stalk peaking through my tomatoes.  I didn’t plant beans this year, it must be from last year?  Now time to go and investigate!

Have a great day!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  5. I love the tastes of fall and when my kitchen smells like pumpkin :)

  6. I am not much of a pumpkin fan but I think I might try this! Your pictures make them look so yummy!

  11. Made these this morning and they were DELICIOUS! I added about 2 tbs of mini chocolate chips and they tasted just like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Love your blog!!

    • Ohhhh my Gosh!!! Chocolate chips! Dam I should of done that!! I’m off to work, but I want to call in sick so I can make these pancakes with Chocolate chips. Great idea Libby!! I am for sure trying that next time!

      • When I make pancakes, pumpkin included, I make a huge batch and freeze them in freezer bags. My girls will open a bag that has one serving for each of them and either toast them or microwave them for a hot breakfast in a hurry. No mess either!

    Oh my, these look wonderful. I have to agree with most others and say that pumpkin is one of my favorite things! Never thought of making pancakes with them! I will be pinning the recipe and will now be following your blog. Would love it if you would stop by my blog.

    Thanks for joining this weeks Foodie Friends Friday. Hope you will link up with us next week.

  14. Ellen Tinder says:

    what can i use in place of the coconut milk and could the left over pumpkin be frozen? i only cook for one as i am a widow.

    • Hi Ellen, I would use milk in place of the coconut milk. I am sure it will turn out yummy. You can also freeze pumpkin. Place it in a freezer safe ziplock baggie, take the air out and place in the freezer. If you make the pancakes, let me know what you think of them!! :)

  15. I haven’t made pumpkin pancakes since…well, last autumn. I should make more!

  16. I’m obsessed with pumpkin! What a creative way to use up leftovers. I had my first Starbucks pumpkin latte today and I’ve been bitten by the bug for sure! Jenn from Bulldogs and Brown Sugar

  18. Pumpkin sounds incredible enough but coconut too. Please share this today on foodie friday and I will pin it too.

  19. For gluten free folks, could we substitute almond flour?

  20. Made your pancakes this morning…my two daughters, 4 and 2, loved them, as did I! I only used 1/4 tsp. stevia for a double batch and used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and they were still fab! We topped ours with a dab of blueberry peach jam. Delish! I printed and added it to my recipe collection. I’m expecting #3 in December and really trying to watch my calorie intake, so I love the lower calorie count!

  21. hi! what can i use to replace the coconut milk?

  22. I’ve included your recipe in a pumpkin line up. Will be tweeting it etc this week.

  23. My daughter has become ill and now needs low-sodium diet.
    Will the recipe work if I leave out the salt (or use salt-substitute and use reduced-sodium baking soda?
    She LOVES pumpkin pancakes and these look delicious but a little high in sodium.

    Thank you

    • Hi Sherry, The pancakes may turn out a tad flat, but the flavor will still be amazing! I’d say give it a shot and see how it works out. The salt and baking soda is what gives it the fluff. I have never used salt substitute or reduced sodium baking soda, but my guess is that they will work. Let me know how it turns out for you.

      I am sorry your daughter is ill. I understand how tough it might be. I will say my prayers for her.

[…] Today is going to feel like Fall!  It’s suppose to rain and be cooler than what it has been and there is one thing this kind of weather puts me in the mood for and that is PUMPKIN!!!!  Ok, may not completely true, considering it was in the 90′s the past few weeks and I posted pumpkin recipes.  I think it’s because all of the cafes are serving pumpkin dishes and seeing that little orange fruit everywhere makes me want to eat it.  So instead of sharing a new recipe with you today, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite pumpkin recipes from the past.  So let’s get the pumpkin craze started with one of my all time favorite Fall breakfast’s, Pumpkin Pancakes.
