Low Calorie, Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes

Ohhhh Yeeaaaa, it’s pumpkin season! I’m so excited. It may be one of my favorite things to bake and cook with. So to start off the pumpkin festivities, I made some pumpkin pancakes this morning. They were AMAZING! Seriously.

 

 

Ingredients:

1 Cup Flour 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder Salt to Taste
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg 1 Egg
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil 1 Cup Skim Milk
1/3 Cup Pumpkin

 

Directions:

1. In a small bowl, mix the egg, oil, milk and pumpkin. Then, in a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients, flour, sugar, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Combine both mixes.

 

2. Heat up a skillet to medium heat. After warmed, spray the pan and spoon out the batter onto the skillet. I use a soup ladle to measure it out and keep it cleaner.

 

3. Once bubbles start to come to the surface, flip the pancake. It should be perfectly brown. If not, adjust the heat down a bit.

 

 

The batter makes about 10 pancakes. A serving of 2 pancakes only gets you to 225 calories! Fantastic!

I topped min with bananas and a bit more cinnamon.

 

 

These were some of the best pancakes I have ever had. When I make something that is especially good, Brent will say “Babe, you did good things” while he shoves the next bite into his mouth. Today, I got a “Babe you did great things” as he shoved the next bite into his mouth with bug eyes.

Great success. The puppies we standing around dying for a bit too.

 

Next time I’m thinking of doing some wheat flour instead. It seems like the wheat and the pumpkin would go really well together.
