Better-Than-Pumpkin-Pie Pancakes Make Breakfast a Treat

Oct 16 2015 - 3:45pm

I had a leftover can of pumpkin purée and decided to put it to use for breakfast. To the delight of my daughters, I made pumpkin pancakes, but I kept things healthy using whole wheat flour and adding some ground chia seeds into the mix. The outcome was tasty and filling, I might add. Topped with maple yogurt and toasted pecans, these pancakes were a seasonal delight.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Notes

I served with maple yogurt and toasted pecans, but feel free to top off as you wish. A drizzle of maple syrup with sliced bananas would be another delicious topping combination.
