Is this really the last WIAW of November? What the heck?! Where in the world has this year gone…Don’t get me wrong, I am loving decorating for Christmas. I’m just a little amazed that 2012 is almost over and 2013 is upon us.
I’ve got a recipe to share with you guys, so please excuse the random eats thrown your way!pumpkin biscotti & coffee, ww toast with sunflower seed butter & jam plus a naner, shredded wheat with bloobs & almond milk

Maybe it’s the fact that Thanksgiving just passed or maybe it’s the colder weather, but I have really been craving holiday flavors. Pumpkin, gingerbread, apple and peppermint are on the top of the list. So, I decided to quench one those cravings in the form of pancakes!
Pumpkin Walnut Pancakes
The perfect pancake for a brisk fall morning.
1 C whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 T cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 C almond milk
1/4 C canned pumpkin
1 T maple syrup or honey
1/4 C crushed walnuts
Mix together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and slowly incorporate the walnuts. Cook in a well greased pan. Makes 8-10 pancakes.
I topped my pancakes with some maple syrup and more walnuts for one seriously delicious plate of breakfast!
By the way, these cakes are totally Ninja approved. I was planning on saving the leftovers for some future breakfasts, but Ninja sat down at the table, grabbed the remaining 6 pancakes, doused them in syrup, and gobbled them down. I sat there dumbfounded. He only looked at me once and muttered through a stuffed mouth, “These are pretty good.” He never ceases to amaze me!
Are any of you still eating Turkey Day leftovers?
Do you like nuts in your pancakes?
