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 egg
  • 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.IMG_2811-001 IMG_2813 IMG_2814

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?

    Mmmm those pancakes!!! Also, your toast/banana made me smile because it looks like it’s smiling at me! haha Or maybe I’m just going insane… that’s probably it.

    Those pancakes look awesome! I have some pumpkin to use up, so I’ll definitely be trying them. Walnuts are my favorite, so it sounds like a great combination to me! All your eats look great, too. I love the Pure bars!

    I wish I was eating Turkey Day leftovers! But seeing as ours was over a month ago, I think I’d be experiencing some serious stomach woes if I was 😛 I am, however, completely open to leftover donations 😀 And I’ve never actually tried adding nuts to my pancakes… fruit is usually about as crazy as I’ll go.

    My leftovers disappeared pretty darn fast ;D Mmm, shredded wheat! I’m a complete dork and that is my favorite cereal–especially on greek yogurt and with lots of toppings!
