Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Introduction

These moist pancakes are lightly spiced for the palate of my young child. If you like a bit more pizzazz, you can increase the spices or add others. Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice both work nicely here. These moist pancakes are lightly spiced for the palate of my young child.

    We really liked these. Didn't have pastry flour, so just used regular whole wheat. Took a bit of time to prepare, but worth the effort! - 3/14/09

    I just made these this morning and did use apple sauce instead of apple butter. Not sure the nutrition change yet, but it was tasty. My 3 1/2 year old son ate 2.5 of them with a little light whipped cream, cinnamon and walnuts! Thanks for this recipe. - 11/11/08

    Wow! I made this for my family for Saturday morning breakfast and the yummy smells woke them up and they stumbled down the stairs to see what i was making. even my hubby liked it, and he's super picky! i would definately make this again. - 11/14/08

    I made these pancakes with canned sweet potato instead. I made 10 large ones, froze them in a tupperware with small sheets of wax paper between them for easy separation, and ate one this a.m., microwaved with apple butter and a sliced banana. That's about 340 calories. My husband loved them too! - 7/21/10

    I made them per instruction the first time but the flavor needed to be amped up a bit. So I added 1 tsp of cinnamon, another 1/2 tsp of nutmeg, and a 1/4 cup more pumpkin. I didn't have apple butter but had sweet potato butter. Fantastic! With the added pumpkin, it made 22 pancakes. - 11/17/09

    Yes, you could use applesauce instead of apple butter, but then you would REALLY have to increase the spices because apple butter has lots of spice already in it. Apple jelly is something entirely different -- I would not recommend trying that at all. - 11/10/09

    I just made these and they were great! I added 1t of salt and 1 T of vanilla extract to the batter..I also didn't have apple butter so it was omitted. One word of caution...its better to make them smaller v. bigger, I made a few that weren't cooked in the middle. Great recipe! - 11/27/09

    These were really good - exactly what I'm craving on a cool fall morning! Of course, I had to add cinnamon to recipe, but didn't modify anything else. Thanks for sharing! - 10/31/09

    This was a special treat for me! I already had an open can of pumpkin, so I decided to try them. They were very good! I think next time I will add even more spices. I froze the leftovers in hopes of a quick meal. Thank you for sharing!!! - 11/24/08

    these pancakes are soooo yummy! I substituted organic WW flour for the pastry and used cinnamon instead of ginger, almond milk instead of regular and they were absolutely yummy!!!! So light and fluffy. I also was able to make 30 out of this batch by making them smaller and froze them... - 11/14/09

    Loved these, and I do not eat pancakes as a rule. Husband had 3, I had one. I cooled the other 17 on a wire rack and think one of these will be a much better substitution for toast and butter. These I can eat without adding anything. Great recipe....I also added cinnamon. - 10/5/10

    A bit of real maple syrup makes the flavor of these come alive! I used roasted pumpkin, not canned, and normal whole wheat flour since I couldn't find it in pastry flour. Nice texture and tasty. I have them in the freezer. - 9/21/10

    I had to omit the apple butter, since I didn't have any on hand, and use soy milk, since that's what I had. I doubled the spices, and added a smidge of cloves and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and they turned out really good! Be sure to keep them small, otherwise, the middle can still be uncooked. - 7/17/10

    Loved them... They are a little heavier, but still very filling so you don't eat as much. The Fam even said "Gee you don't need syrup"!!! Next time I'll make all the batter and try freezing them, never frozen pancakes before. - 12/13/09

    Absolutely amazing! Substituted splenda b.sugar, egg beaters, applesauce and doubled the spices! We had 17 kids (no school/home daycare) so I made a triple batch hoping to have some to freeze, but only ended up with about 7 to freeze & had to cut them off! Topped with light whipped cream! YUMMY!!!! - 11/12/09

    Quite good, but I substitute whole milk to avoid the additive in skim milk that increases LDL. - 11/10/09

    Already a family favorite! Have made this recipe for Sunday breakfast a couple of times. My extremely picky 8 yr old loved these and even requested them for his birthday breakfast. The only changes I made were to use .25 tsp of the spices instead of .50 tsp, also added .25 tsp of cinnamon. - 10/17/10

    I will have to play with the spices some since I went for applesauce and not apple butter. I may put more pumpkin in next time. - 10/12/10

    My husband really like these pancakes! I added walnuts to part of the batter for me...really liked them. Forgot to buy apple butter, so used regular butter...think it made a difference...will definitely remember apple butter next time. Also added cinnamon per others suggestions. - 10/11/10
