I’m holding on to pumpkin season around here! Because it’s delicious and nutritious and goes well with chocolate. Three ways to win.
I’ve been poking at these pumpkin pancakes on and off for a few weeks. They started with a paleo recipe but, by the time I’d added three ingredients and changed the amounts of a couple of others, I finally got the taste and texture to my preferences. Voila! New recipe!
Now, I often have these with Nature’s Hollow Pancake Syrup ( <— aff link... I might as well stick the whole disclaimer right here that any product links might be affiliate links. Clicking on them doesn't cost you a penny more, and I get a small percentage of any sales.) But I also love them with either the Handy Chocolate Syrup recipe from the first THM cookbook page 479 or this homemade version: Easy Low Sugar Chocolate Syrup Sauce from Low Carb Yum.
Wait a sec. Do you enjoy reading fiction? I’m an author of Christian contemporary romance with over 40 titles released on Amazon in ebook and paperback. If you enjoy stories with engaging characters, strong communities, deep faith, and great food, would you please check out my novels? There are a couple of covers in the sidebar, or click on the Books tab above. Thanks!
So, let’s get started!
Recipe: Pumpkin Pancakes (S) (FP)
Makes 4 pancakes
• 1 tablespoon butter, melted (limit to one teaspoon for FP)
• 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
• 2 eggs (sub 1/2 cup egg whites for FP)
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Give the wet ingredients a good whisk! Then add:
• 1/4 cup baking blend (I make my own.)
• 1 tablespoon xylitol) or monkfruit-erythritol blend or similar sweetener.
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
• pinch of salt
Mix the dry ingredients evenly into the wet ingredients. Heat your frying pan. My favorite is a French blue steel pan. I love it because it is naturally non-stick, has low sides (so it is perfect for wraps, crepes, and omelets as well!), and cooks evenly. Keep the heat medium low. On my gas range, that’s a 4 out of 10.
Spray pan with spray oil, or melt a dab of butter between pancakes for S. Pour 1/4 cup batter into hot pan and spread the batter with the bottom of your measuring cup. Wait patiently until there are bubbles all over and the edges look dry. Carefully flip. These are somewhat fragile, to be honest! The second side takes about half the time as the first side. When all four are cooked, add butter (not for FP) and sugar-free syrup to taste.
You may add a protein source like bacon or sausage, but with two eggs in the pancakes, you’ve got enough protein to keep you going.
This is a breakfast Sadie from Raindrops on Radishes would totally enjoy in her Trim Healthy Mama story! If you enjoy romance from a distinctly Christian point-of-view, please give Raindrops on Radishes a try! This THM-based story is available on Kindle, in paperback, and via Kindle Unlimited.
