Back to my morning change up! If you didn't know, I drink a smoothie almost every morning. I take Metamucil and flax (to help my stomach) I prefer to blend them in a smoothie rather than drink them in water. This has been working for about 4 months, but last week I felt the need to change it up. I have been craving pumpkin (and had some leftover pumpkin in my fridge) so I made pumpkin pancakes! They turned out so yummy, plus they are moist and filling. The best part is how easy they are to make-check it out.
Topped with peanut butter, bananas, mini chocolate chips and cinnamon sugar
About 5-6 minutes on the griddle total.
A great way to start the day!
1/3 cup just add water pancake mix (I used Kodiak mix)
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. Nopalina Flax
2 Tbsp. pumpkin puree (approximate measurement, it is the plain pumpkin)
Sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon
Basically I made the mix according to the package, adding the pumpkin, flax, and spices before I stirred it all together. Lightly oil a griddle and cook until bubbles start to pop (about 4-5 minutes) then flip. Top with your favorite toppings.
*I like to keep my weekday breakfasts on the healthy side so I didn't use syrup. I topped mine with peanut butter, bananas, a few mini chocolate chips and a sprinkles of cinnamon sugar. I am not one to skip out on syrup but these were really good without it:) Hope you enjoy them as much as me.
Other topping/batter ideas: These would be really good with walnuts or pecans, topped with butter and syrup for a weekend breakfast. Also they would be good topped with granola.
