Low Fat Pumpkin Pancakes........

I'm starting out the New Year right and lightening up any recipe that I think could make a difference in my waistline.   Low fat pumpkin pancakes is a keeper.  Here is the recipe.


  • 1/2  cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1  tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup pure pumpkin
Mix flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl. Combine egg, oil, buttermilk and pumpkin in another bowl. Stir pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients. Let stand for five minutes. Use a 1/4 cup of batter per pancake and pour onto a hot griddle or nonstick frying pan that has been oiled or sprayed with non stick spray.  Flip pancakes when bubbles appear and edges are cooked.  I toasted a few pecans and served them on top with genuine New Hampshire maple syrup.
Makes 8-10 smaller sized pancakes .

  2. I would be the size of a house if you cooked for me. :) Even these, cause I would have to have butter. You make the yummiest food! Because when I look at your pictures I know I would eat the whole thing and not share. :)
