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.
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.
