Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes

There’s nothing like having something pumpkin once the weather cools and fall hangs in the air.  Anything pumpkin goes for me this time of year: pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins.  I realized this year that I’ve never made pumpkin pancakes, so I knew I had to find a healthy recipe and give it a try!  And a yummy recipe I found!

Using freshly milled flour makes a difference in taste and nutrition!  I love making my own flour!

I love using cast iron skillets!  They are perfect for pancakes and safe to use {unlike the traditional non-stick griddles}.

This pancake and syrup recipe was adapted from Real Food Enthusiast.

Recipe:

1/2 cup freshly milled whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice {or 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp. cloves, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg}
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
4 eggs
2 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. butter or coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • Mix the dry ingredients together {the four, baking soda and spices}.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the rest of the ingredients until well combined.
  • Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
  • Spoon batter onto a buttered pan.
  • Flip pancakes over when edges start to look dry and small bubbles form.

You can also give this yummy syrup a try.  I loved it over these pancakes!  What a healthy syrup compared to pancake syrup the average household buys!

Cinnamon Syrup:

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Heat the honey, butter and cinnamon together until they are melted and mixed together well.  Stir often while it’s melting.  Serve over pancakes.

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: For years I have desired to make my own flour, and have heard from several others that they preferred the WonderMill as their favorite. I was thrilled to participate in this challenge and discover for myself how simple the WonderMill is to use, clean and store. I am still amazed every time I see wheat berries or oat groats turn into beautiful flour in a matter of seconds! Through this challenge I have discovered that making my own flour saves money and is more nutritious for my family. I appreciate this opportunity and will be recommending the WonderMill for years to come.
