Mondays are hard. Let’s have some pancakes.
Another great way to celebrate is with pancakes. Duh. Pancakes make the world go round.
These pancakes are quite pumpkin-y and spice-y. Despite the extremely HOT weather, they make you feel like it’s fall outside. And it’s perfect. And I don’t know about you, but something about pumpkin makes me really full. Pumpkin pancakes are my go-to when I know I have a long day ahead of me and need some serious fuel.
Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
2 c white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of allspice
1 1/2 c soymilk
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp maple syrup
1/4 c + 2 tbsp canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1. In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice with a whisk to incorporate some air.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, brown sugar, maple syrup, pumpkin, and vanilla.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
4. Pour desired amount of batter onto a greased skillet over medium heat. When bubbles begin to form, flip pancake. Continue flipping occasionally until slightly browned on both sides.
