Seriously what is more comforting than a huge stack of pancakes on a weekend morning? Well, really any day for that matter. For me, pancakes are one of those comfort food/carb/coma inducing breakfasts I rarely have..but it is the best treat when I do. If you ever wanna know how to make me happy give me a huge stack of pancakes. It works every. time. If we’re being honest, put any food in front of me and I’ll be happy. Anyway, these are super delicious and fluffy and moist and have the perfect balance of pumpkin spice flavor. Treat yourself to a nice fall breakfast/brunch this weekend!
And you definitely have to put more powdered sugar and dust some more pumpkin pie spice over the top.
And use real maple syrup. The only option.
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c. old fashioned oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 T. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 T. brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk you have on hand)
1/3 c. canned pumpkin
3 T. plain Greek yogurt (I used 0%)
powdered sugar for dusting
pure maple syrup for serving
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth. Next, add the egg and vanilla and whisk together until smooth, and then add the milk, pumpkin and yogurt. Whisk together. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring until just combined.
Preheat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat, and spray with cooking spray. Scoop batter by the 1/2 cup onto griddle/pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Watch the heat, you may have to turn it up/down depending on your stove.
To serve, stack the pancakes and dust with powdered sugar and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice, and drizzle with pure maple syrup. Trust me, it makes a difference.
I love what the oats add to these. Yay for fall and everything pumpkin! Comfort food breakfast at its best.
