Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes

We had these for dinner tonight. It is fun to switch it up sometimes. I like pancakes better at dinnertime than for breakfast. I was thinking about making pumpkin pancakes the other night so, I decided tonight was a great night to make them. I LOVE pumpkin. I like eating it all year long. These tasted great!


2 C whole grain flour (spelt, kamut, oats) or whatever mix you want
3-4 T coconut sugar or sweetener of your choice
1 T Baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
pinch of cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 C Kefir, milk or plain yogurt (*may need to add a couple T of flour if you use milk. )
1/2 C canned pumpkin
1/4 C coconut oil or oil of your choice


1. In bowl mix the flour, sugar, spices, salt, baking powder. Cut in the coconut oil till its all combined. If using another oil just stir it all in to dry mixture.

2. Then stir in the pumpkin, and kefir or milk. Mixture will be lumpy. Don't over stir. Just stir until completely moistened.

3. Pour on to hot griddle. Cook 1 to 2 min on each side. Top with you favorite topping.

*Options: 1. You could put mini chips in or even the regular size. 2. You could put candied nuts on them. 3. We put on homemade raspberry jam and a dab of cream. 4. Cinnamon and sugar with butter. Lots of options. =)
