Pecan Pumpkin Pancakes

pphoto 1-1My Sundays are my favorite day of the week. I wake up and go for a 45 minute run along the beautiful seawall, accompanied by a myriad of other runners and their tiny dogs. Then I come back and make pancakes to make my already good day, even better. This time I decided to make pumpkin pancakes to change it up a little bit (for my protein pancake recipe, click HERE). These pancakes were super thick, had hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, and were wonderfully fluffy. I made so many that I even have some leftover for tomorrow morning (best way to heat them up is to stick em in the toaster for a minute, rather than letting them get soggy in the microwave). I like to top my pancakes with honey rather than maple syrup, and sprinkle some cinnamon on top for good measure.

Pecan Pumpkin Pancakes
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Author: Beverley Cheng
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 10 pancakes
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup pecans
  • ⅔ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • ½-3/4 cup milk (I used almond milk)
Instructions
  1. In a food processor or magic bullet, blend the pecans so that they resemble bread crumbs
  2. In a small pan, heat up the butter so that it is completely melted. Pour into a small bowl and let cool down
  3. In another bowl, mix together the pecans, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl.
  4. In a second bowl, beat the two eggs together. Add in the melted butter, honey, pumpkin puree, and milk. Mix until completely combined. This mixture will be quite thick. If you prefer, add in more milk to make it runnier
  5. Mix together the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Again, this will be quite thick but will make super fluffy pancakes. If you prefer thinner cakes, just add more milk or water to thin it out
  6. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop out the mixture and pour onto a hot skillet. The pancake will be ready to flip once bubbles have started forming on the top
