Healthy Pumpkin Hot Cakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by qotw13

I was looking forward to trying some pumpkin pancakes the other night, but the only recipe I had was bookmarked on my browser, and the internet was down! So, I decided to just modify a regular pancake recipe to fit my needs. While the result wasn't exactly what I was going for, I thought that it did still work out pretty well. This recipe could still use some work, but I wanted to get it posted so I wouldn't lose it (haha!), and to get any suggestions people may have to improve these.

Although these turned out to be almost a dessert pancake, I made them for breakfast & served them with both a thin topping of cream cheese & some peach sauce that I have! Maybe I'm just so easily satisfied, but I thought these were great as is! Will definitely make them again! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's PAC]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Combine wet ingredients and add to dry mixture.
  3. If batter seems too thick, add 1 T water at a time until desire consistency (I only added 1 T).
  4. Spoon a couple spoonfuls of batter into hot pan over medium-low to medium heat. You will probably have to spread the batter, since it is rather thick and will not spread itself.
  5. Cook 1-2 minutes on each side.
  6. These are pretty tasty by themselves, though I did try putting a little cottage cheese on top (mainly for the protein), or a very thin layer of cream cheese.
