Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe


2 cups whole-wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1-1/4 cups buttermilk

1 cup pumpkin puree

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 tbsp butter, melted


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, spice and salt in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs and butter. Stir to combine (but don’t over-mix). Heat skillet, pan or griddle to medium-hot and brush with a bit of butter. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the skillet. Wait until pancake bottom is deep golden in colour, then flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat with remaining batter (makes about 12 large pancakes).
