Healthy Pumpkin Sourdough Discard Pancakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by vanettenk

Something to do with your sourdough discard instead of wasting it! You can also use active sourdough starter for this instead of discard, I've used both successfully. This is a modification of this: to make it a bit healthier!

Thank you, thank YOU!! I was looking for something to use up some starter (wasn't up for making bread!)...and had some leftover pumpkin in the fridge from an earlier batch of pumpkin bread. I threw this together in a few seconds, made pancakes and have wrapped/frozen them. They will be a WONDERFUL breakfast!! Oh... and they are absolutely delishious, too! (I only had buttermilk, but they were still good!)
