Pumpkin Spice Blender Pancakes

Hi there,

I love fall, cool crisp air, fall colors, the smell of wood burning in the fireplace, and of course “pumpkin,”  Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors.    When I saw a recipe in, “Clean Eating,” magazine for pumpkin spice pancakes made in the blender, I knew I just had to try it.   I’ve never made pancake batter in a blender before, I thought it was a great idea to use a blender to make pancake batter, especially since getting the mixer out is not my favorite thing to do 🙂    Here are my Blender Pumpkin Spice Pancakes.

These pancakes are delicious.   I had them for breakfast every morning before work and they were very filling and helped me to get through the day until I had time to eat again ( which I never know when that will be) I will definitely be making them again.  Pumpkin also has health benefits. It’s rich in vitamin A, a nutrient that is key for keeping your eyes, skin and your immune system healthy.

Here’s the recipe and nutrient information:

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

serves 6

2 large   eggs

2 cups    white whole wheat flour ( I used regular whole wheat)

1 1/2 cups  whole milk ( I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

3/4 cup  unsweetened pumpkin puree

1/4 cup  unsalted organic butter, melted

2 tbsp  organic evaporated cane juice

1 tbsp  baking powder

1 tsp  pure vanilla extract

1 tsp  ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp  ground ginger

1/4 tsp  sea salt

1.  To a blender, add all ingredients and blend until smooth and thoroughly mixed, scraping down sides of blender with a rubber spatula if necessary.

2.  Heat a nonstick griddle over medium-high and spray with cooking spray.  Working in batches, pour a scant 1/4 cup batter per pancake, making 3-inch circles; cook until small bubbles appear and burst on the surface and the underside is golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  Flip pancakes and cook until golden on opposite side, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes more.

3.  Top with original toppings such as thinly sliced apple, walnuts, a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
