This unusual spiced pumpkin pancake recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch, especially before or after Halloween when pumpkins are plentiful. Top with Apple Butter, Almond Butter, any other nut butter or pure Canadian maple syrup.
Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes
1/2 cup fresh cooked, mashed pumpkin
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup Kamut flour
1/2 tsp Stevia in place of brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup plain or vanilla almond milk
Combine the pumpkin with the dry ingredients. Mix water, oil, and almond milk and add to pumpkin mixture. Beat just until smooth. Heat griddle or frying pan and oil lightly. Use about 1/4-cup of batter for each pancake; cook until bubbles appear, then turn. Remove when pancakes are golden and slightly firm to the touch.
