Food - Pumpkin Pancakes

These were quite a treat for Sunday morning with a side of fresh pears and maple syrup both locally produced, of course!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1      cup milk (or coconut/almond milk)
  • 1      can pumpkin puree (or equivalent cooked/mashed fresh pumpkin/winter     squash)
  • 1      egg (or 1 Tablespoon chia seeds added to a little water and stirred to gel)
  • 2      tablespoons olive oil or good farm lard which is soft enough to use unmelted
  • 2      tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups spelt flour
  • 1/2  cup almond flour
  • 3      tablespoons brown sugar or buckwheat honey
  • 2      teaspoons baking powder
  • 1      teaspoon baking soda
  • 1      teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1      teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2      teaspoon nutmeg (fresh grated if possible)
  • 1/2      teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, fat and vinegar (and honey if using). Combine the flour, brown sugar if using, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Just a couple closing thoughts:  Leftovers of these were excellent today with a fried egg on top.  Also, I recently saw a recipe online for pancakes which called for stevia, a natural non-sugar sweetener.  This is silly.  You don’t add a little sugar product in pancake batter for a sweet taste!  The small amount of sugar is in there because it produces a crispy outside to the finished pancakes.  And lastly, give up the packaged mixes.  Pancakes and waffles of all types are easy to make from real ingredients you throw together yourself.  Save money and cook/eat real food without any preservatives/additives!
