I made pumpkin pancakes 6 times before I came to a recipe that I felt was worth sharing. Hopefully you guys enjoy it, too! My husband and I liked them with the sauce, but Alexander loved them plain.
NOTE: Don’t make fun of my paper bowl. I made this recipe a few weeks ago, when we were in the process of moving, and we had packed all our plates and bowls already!
I made some grain-free pancake bites a while back, and they were… fine! But I wanted to try making them better, or at least more portable. So I tweaked the recipe a little, and they are a little more cake-like now. They are no longer grain-free (unless you try using oat flour, but I didn’t do that). You know what… I really want to try using oat flour and also gluten-free flour. I’ll try that in the future! (For the record, I am writing this post WAY in advance, so by the time this is published, I may already be using oat or GF flour!)
I made these pancakes several times this week and last week. There’s no added sugar (okay technically I add chocolate chips to my own, BUT the baby’s version doesn’t have added sugar). There is cocoa powder, which means there’s a tiny bit of caffeine. Read this post I wrote yesterday about caffeine!
