While this isn’t the most nutritious meal, I want to point out, there is a big difference between refined, highly processed pancakes and pancakes made with whole grain real ingredients. When we eat food made with whole-real food ingredients, we are giving our body the nutrients, vitamins, and fiber that it needs to work and function well. For a lot of recipes, this simply means pulling the refined white sugar and replacing it with an unrefined sugar (like coconut sugar or honey) or white flour to a whole grain flour.

I loved how fluffy and tasty these pancakes turned out and shoved them to the front of the line to share them with you! Adding the dark chocolate chips is an add on and are still delicious without.

I’d love to hear how they turn out for you…comment below!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut sugar (honey will work-just add it into wet ingredients)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. dried ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 pinch clove
  • 1 cup milk (we like almond)
  • 6 Tbsp. canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8-1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips (we use Enjoy Life brand)
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
Servings: pancakes
Instructions
  1. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin, melted butter, and egg.
  3. Fold wet mixture into dry ingredients. Stir in chcolate chips until incorporated. (I added around 5 mini chips to the top of each pancake instead of adding to batter).
  4. Spray or grease a skillet and heat over medium high heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake on skillet.
  5. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately with a tablespoon of maple syrup on top.
Recipe Notes

We love to top these with chopped pecans, pure maple syrup, and chopped fruit (apples and blueberries work well).

A dollop of Homemade Whipping Cream is also a perfect topping! Sweet treat!
