Healthy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by smellyvegetarian

Every year around September I get a HUGE craving for anything and everything pumpkin--especially this year since I'm expecting a little one this winter! This is what I came up with when craving pancakes but wanting something healthy, too. It is a take-off from the Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes in "Recipes from the Old Mill". Enjoy!

Delicious! I added 3 T brown sugar and extra cinnamon. I also increased the baking soda and baking powder to 1 1/2 t each for extra fluffiness since whole wheat flour can make baked goods dense. I added some chopped pecans for crunch and for healthy fat so these would "stick" with us longer. Both my husband and I loved them and will definitely make again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs well until somewhat frothy.
  2. Add other ingredients except pumpkin and mix.
  3. Add pumpkin and mix again.
  4. Fry batter in scant 1/4 cupfuls on a nonstick griddle or pan.
  5. Try not to stack pancakes if possible; this helps retain the fluffiness :). I often store them on a cookie sheet in a 250°F oven until time to serve, which helps keep them warm.
