pumpkin pancakes with spiced cider syrup

a recipe by

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.

How To Make pumpkin pancakes with spiced cider syrup

  • 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.
  • And toasted pecans too...delicious!
    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!
