Pumpkin Pancakes with Spiced Cider Syrup

We love all things pumpkin so in the Fall I try to add it to alot of things I bake. It's such a healthy vegetable with lots of fiber and health benefits.
I have seen many pumpkin recipes online, but wanted to healthify them so I could eat them and feel better about serving them to my grandson. I also wanted to make a lower calorie syrup to serve with them, so I made a cider syrup that I have made with apple spice pancakes..but with less sugar.
When I made these Cayden gave them an 8 out of 10 stars. I gave them a solid 10!
They were delicious and will make them many times in the future.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make the cider syrup first so it can simmer and thicken while you make the pancake batter.
Combine all syrup ingredients and whisk over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and reduce the heat to low and let it simmer while making the batter.
Heat griddle to 350 degrees.
2
In medium bowl whisk together all wet ingredients well.
Stir together all dry ingredients in a small bowl.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir together until well mixed but not too much. Batter will be thicker than most pancake batters.
3
Spray griddle with non stick cooking spray. (for these I use coconut non stick spray from Trader Joe's)
Ladle batter onto griddle and flatten out a bit into circles with the back of the ladle.
Cook until browned and flip. Cook 2nd side until browned.
Serve with a small amount of butter and cider sauce.
Top with toasted chopped pecans if desired. Enjoy!
