What do you do with your pumpkins once Halloween is over? Have you ever thought to roast them and make puree? We don't carve all of our pumpkins so that we can use our decor as food and I've written about it here. One of the newest recipes that I've tried is one of my absolute favourites: Pumpkin Pancakes.
This recipe is adapted from The Looneyspoons Collection called Pimped-Out Pumpkin Pie Pancakes. If you do not have this recipe book you might want to get it because it rocks and we use it all the time.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups of milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1. Combine flours, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mix.
2. In another bowl, whisk milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla.
3. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until all combined. Do not over mix. Add chocolate chips.
4. Place batter onto pre-heated griddle that has been coated in cooking spray and enjoy the aroma!
This was a hit for the whole family and although my kids like them covered in syrup, it tastes just lovely on it's own. Do you have a favourite pumpkin puree recipe?
