Scrumptious Pumpkin Pancakes

By now fall is well underway. I have shed a tear that summer is over, unpacked my sweaters from storage, made the first batch of apple cider for the season, scoured the shelves of Trader Joe's for all the best fall has to offer, and tried some new festive diffuser blends. I really need to go back to Trader Jose's and buy everything again. The harvest pasta sauce was AMAZING. Speaking of amazing, these pumpkin pancakes are pretty great, in my opinion. Give them a whirl and see what you think. As usual, I used gluten free flour, but you can substitute all-purpose, whole wheat, spelt, or whatever tickles your fancy.

I live in high altitude (8,465 feet to be exact) so if you recipe doesn't turn out (I hope that doesn't happen) let me know (you may need to add some baking soda).

Scrumptious Pumpkin Pancakes

1 can pumpkin puree

2 C. + 2 Tbsp. milk (your choice what kind)

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. monkfruit sugar (or other sugar)

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

3 tsp. baking powder

2 C. flour (I used gluten free)

Heat your pancake griddle on medium/high heat while you mix up the batter. You want your grilled nice and hot and ready to go.

Add the first three ingredients to you mixer and mix until blended. Do not over mix. Add the vanilla, salt, monkfruit sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, banking powder, and mix for 5 seconds on low. Add the flour and mix on low just until everything is combined and batter is smooth.

Spray the griddle with non-stick spray and spoon the batter on to make your pancakes. Wait until the batter forms little bubbles and then flip them. If your pancakes are light yellow instead of golden brown your griddle isn't hot enough. Turn the heat up a tad and let it get hot before you add more batter to the griddle.

I love to top my pumpkin pancakes with real maple syrup, chopped pecans, and banana slices, but enjoy yours however you want. Although it really is worth splurging on real maple syrup. Artificial maple syrup is a sin.
