Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes

Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes

Yesterday just slipped right by me! I was working on a quilt and then bang! It was evening and I hadn't cooked a thing! This cool weather just makes me want to be creative! I've been working on a travel quilt for Alexis for over a year and since we have some fun adventures planned over the next few months and she has grown too tall for her other quilts it's time to finish this one so her little toes won't get cold when she's sleeping on her travel bed! I hope to finish it today. We'll see how that goes! ;o)

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! Alexis and I decided to use the last of our pumpkin and make some pancakes. These are a great fall time treat. You probably won't see anymore pumpkin recipes for a while, but then again never say never! ;o)

What You'll Need:
2 cups of white whole wheat flour (Note: If you don't have white whole wheat flour or can't find it then regular whole wheat flour will work too. All purpose flour would work as well, but then you'd knock out the benefits of whole grain.)
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 cup of mashed pumpkin
1/3 cup of maple syrup (Note: Real maple syrup, not pancake syrup. You can also use honey or molasses.)
1 3/4 cups of buttermilk
2 eggs
3/4 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

Mix dry ingredients to incorporate. Stir in pumpkin, maple syrup, buttermilk and eggs mix until mixture is smooth. Add raisins and walnuts and stir to mix. Cook batter as you would regular pancakes in a large preheat skillet or griddle with a little non-stick spray.

Notes: You could use any kind of nut you liked. Also you may need a bit more or less buttermilk depending on the humidity. When the batter forms stop adding milk. If need be add a little more. The batter should be thin, but not completely runny.

This is the first time I had ever made them, but the idea had been floating around in my head for years. I'll definitely be making them again. :o)
