Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes


Tis the season for all things pumpkin!

If you are like me, you can’t wait for October to come and for the cans of pumpkin to start lining the grocery store shelves.


Pancakes are one of our favorite breakfast foods around our house.  So when October hits, I always whip up a few batches of these pumpkin pancakes to get us through.  They are light, fluffy and taste just like fall.


For this recipe, I used my mill to grind up some hard white wheat berries.  As always, the Wondermill performed beautifully.  I like working with the white wheat berries much more than the red winter wheat.

If you make these, I’d love to hear what you think of them!

    These were DELISH! I used sprouted whole wheat flour (and I think I accidentally added 1 1/2 c flour so I ended up needing about 2T more milk) and did 2 T real maple syrup instead of sugar. Since I did too much flour, the batter was really thick (hence the extra liquid). We added chocolate chips and served them with cinnamon whipped cream. These were a hit with our family!!! Thanks for the great recipe!

    I made these with AP flour because it’s all I had on hand and they were delicious!! The batter was a little thick but it ended up cooking just fine. I loved the spices and pumpkin for fall. Such a perfect breakfast for a cloudy, cool Sunday Morning in November. 🙂
