I spend half my life on Pinterest. Literally half my life… maybe even more. It’s just so addictive, I can’t stop. Lately, it seems like everything on Pinterest is pumpkin related. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. And rightly so, because around this time of year we all start getting in the festive mood and along with that comes the cravings for not only pumpkin, but all the warm spices.
I’ve always been a pancake fan. There really is no better breakfast food than pancakes, can we all just agree on that? Okay, good! When you start your day with pancakes, it feels like you can take on the world and it feels like a reassurance that today is going to be a good day. It’s true, isn’t it? My usual breakfast pancakes are these Power Oat Pancakes, which I LOVE! They are super healthy and delicious. But as the seasons change, so do I. And that means I’m saying goodbye to my good ol trusty Power Oat Pancakes and moving on to newer things, like this fabulously Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes.
For these Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes, I made my own pumpkin puree which is incredibly easy to make. You can check out that recipe over….here. Once you’ve made that, or if your anything like me, you probably already have a whole stash of Pumpkin Puree in your fridge for whenever the pumpkin urge calls, you then simply mix all the wet ingredients together. Then mix all the dry ingredients together and then combine the wet and dry ingredients. And that’s it folks. There you have it Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes. Now it is literally just a matter of frying them in a tiny (seriously tiny) amount of butter or coconut oil and then comes the hard part… Choosing a topping. Aaah the endless topping saga, what will I drench my pancakes in today? For these Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes, I went with a tiny bit of butter and a crap load of golden syrup. BUT I have made them many other times where I’ve drenched them in Vegan Salted Caramel or topped them with some delicious Coconut Whipped Cream. Whatever you choose, or even if you decide to go with ALL of the above, it will be absolutely delicious!
