Pumpkin Pancakes

Sometimes, even when time is short, you have to take the time to indulge and enjoy the little things. I haven’t made pancakes in so long I’d really been wanting some. And wanting to try out a new Calphalon non-stick griddle pan I’d purchased on clearance at Target ($15…I couldn’t resist). Usually I use my cast iron, but it sticks with pancakes too much.

I’ve been loving pumpkin everything lately, and decided to add it into my pancakes.


Same ol’ same ol’ recipe I use…mostly just throwing ingredients into a bowl, I know it so well.

Heat pan to medium heat.

Combine 4 tbsp flour/protein powder combo (I usually do 2 and 2), 1/2 – 2tbsp flaxseeds, milk (usually coconut), pinch of salt, baking powder and baking soda, cinnamon. Let it sit for a minute or two then add more liquid because the flax will act as a binder and thicken it a little. At this point I added in a couple heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin, plus more liquid until I got a good consistency (not too runny but not muffin batter thick either).

Add in any add-ins (or wait and put them on top like I do).

Cook both sides until done.

Voila! Easy!

I was at Kroger today and saw a Pumpkin Spice kefir by Lifeway Kefir. This may find it’s way into my cart next trip. And some non-dairy Nog <3 Isn’t the holiday season grand? I think so. I love seasonality.

What holiday grocery  products do you always look forward to?

I love the scented candles, lotions, body products, etc. And the teas! The pumpkin spice, peppermint mochas, and nog-flavored items.

    Hey Ashlei! I wish I could eat that Pumpkin kefir, but I am noticing that I have an intolerance to dairy. Do you have the same sort of problem? If so, how do you cope?

    I love the pancake recipe! I am jotting it down right after I comment. :) I have never tried eggnog, but I am interested in trying the Silk kind! Maybe next time I go shopping. :)

    See you! Come check out my new blog. :)

      Hey girl! Didn’t realize you got a new blog!

      I don’t find that I’m intolerant to dairy, just gluten. I try to just eat yogurt though and limit my intake of cheese. I prefer non-dairy milks though and I think Silk also has a pumpkin spice flavor too :)

    I love the Candy Cane Lane tea. I stock up every year!

  3. Pumpkin spice kefir?! I commend your self-control…I think I’d have bought them all :P
    When I was in the store today I saw the Silk nog and was wondering if it’s good. I used to love the real deal, but my stomach was never a fan!! Farrr too rich, but I love the taste, flavor and “seasonal”-ness of it. I can’t wait for green mountain’s eggnog coffee, which is wayyy better than it sounds :)

    • Ashlei says:

      No idea what the eggnog coffee is but it sounds amazing! Silk nog is awesome, and definitely much less rich than the real deal. I bet your tummy could handle it :)

  4. Yum, I wish I could find similar flavored kefir water! The pancakes look wonderful. I’m a fan of fall flavored coffees and teas.

    I just found eggnog flavord tea at the store yesterday….of course I snagged it! I can’t wait to try it out. Historically I am NOT a tea drinker but I couldn’t pass anything with eggnog on the front! I mean seriously??

  6. yes yes! always add pumpkin to everything while you can! look at all those pancakes!! a breakfast fit for a queen or king, or just a hungry Ashlei ;)

    Anything with pumpkin is delicious. I mixed some TJ’s pumpkin butter into my oatmeal this morning. I’ve never tried eggnog, though I don’t think I would like it very much.
