Hi friends– Well, I had one last can of pumpkin lurking in my cupboard after Thanksgiving and since the grand-girls (and their dear mom) were here for the weekend, we pulled it out to make Saturday morning pancakes. Had some good mixing and stirring help and, of course, happy pancakes eaters. Good way to start the day…
PUMPKIN OATMEAL PANCAKES
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup whole oats
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon)
3/4 cup yogurt
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Stir together the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Then mix in the pumpkin puree, yogurt, milk, eggs, vanilla and oil. Add the nuts if you like them (I do– but the grand girls no!).
The batter will be thick, so cook it in 4″ rounds over medium heat– not too hot to let it cook clear through.
Makes about 20 pancakes– Good morning!!
Here’s my morning pancake stirrer-uppers (Nice morning hair Jobay!!) and later in the day I drafted the girls to help me decorate Christmas cookies (heavy on the sprinkles!)
Love hitting the kitchen with those 3 girls!
