Multigrain Pumpkin Pancakes

This recipe falls into the semi-homemade category, a lá Sandra Lee, using a boxed mix to speed things up. It includes whole grains and a vitamin-packed veggie for a hearty, healthful breakfast. Enjoy!

Note: I have a hard time making my pancakes look good (round) if the batter is runny, so this is a little on the thick side to suit my preference. For a thinner batter, omit 1/4 cup of the pancake mix.

Multigrain Pumpkin Pancakes

2 1/4 cups multigrain pancake mix (I like Trader Joe’s)
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

2 large eggs
1 cup nonfat milk
1/3 cup cooked pumpkin
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Whisk pancake mix and cinnamon together in a medium bowl and set aside.

Combine remaining ingredients in a blender and puree.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and whisk or stir together in as few strokes as possible, mixing just until combined.

Cook pancakes into whatever sizes and shapes you like. Top with your favorite syrup and serve immediately.

When there are leftover pancakes, we store them in the refrigerator and toast them for breakfast the next day. Yum!

    The pumpkin pancakes were a hit this morning with the kids! I didn’t realize when I started tnat I was short a couple ingredients, so I had to substitute evaporated milk (nonfat) for the milk and applesauce for the oil. Still tasted great! Can’t wait to try a few more of your recipes!

  • That’s perfect, Kristen! I like to use evaporated nonfat milk instead of cream in quiche and scone recipes, and applesauce is a “savvy” substitute for oil in several baked goods. Thanks for the feedback, and happy baking!

    Loved these pancakes and my daughter ate 3! They were so delicious and we’ll definitely have these many more times in our house.

  • Thanks for the great feedback, Cheryl!
