Colorful leaves on trees, holidays approaching, a chill in the air and PUMPKINS!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHH the signs of Fall that I absolutely LOVE! Not only are these round orange little cuties cute to look at but they are packed with nutrition. They are rich in dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins such as Vitamin-A, Vitamin-C and Vitamin-E. They make great pies, soup muffins and yes, PANCAKES! Not hard at all and oh so so good. You can absolutely make with fresh pupkin or the organic pumpkin puree you find in the market. Make them on a lazy weekend morning or even for Christmas breakfast!!!!!!!I added ground Hazelnuts to these pancakes as well for some extra YUM. Not only because I LOVE them, but they add such a wonderful nuttiness and match up so well with the pumpkin and choc chips. Hazelnuts also have a high amount of vitamin E in addition to B vitamins, including folate.
And the chocolate chips, well, i just couldn’t resist. I used Enjoy life choc chips and you can put a few or add a bunch its up to you. Im sure you will LOVVEEE these pancakes as much as i do
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup hazelnut flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
1/3 cup puréed pumpkin
2 tbsp grape seed oil
1 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup
1 cup rice milk
1/2 cup water or less depending on batter how thick or thin you like pancakes. Opt for the thicker.
Grape seed oil for pan or earth balance
Choc chips (as many or few as u like)
- Combine in a bowl all dry ingredients and whisk out any lumps
- In a medium size bowl mix together all wet ingredients, except the water
Slowly mix the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients to create a smooth batter
– Add water a little bit at a time into the batter and mix as you go. NOTE: If you like a thinner pancake add more water, for thicker pancakes add less. (I recommend keeping the batter not too thin or they won’t cook properly)
Heat your skillet or griddle to medium. Spoon or pour in your batter to your preferred size. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more.
enjoy these yummy nutritious puffy cakes!!!
