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.

Step-By-Step

1Make 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.

2In 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.

3Spray 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!
