I do not normally make pancakes but with Tuesday being Pancake Day (Or Shrove Tuesday) for the UK I saw a ton of pancake pictures on WordPress! So I decided why not make some pancakes. I wanted my favorite Banana Pecan – but we are out of pecans. Maybe I will make them next weekend. So I searched in the pantry to see what ingredients are available and ended up making Whole-Wheat pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips. The recipe made quite a few so I will freeze the left overs for another meal.
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 ¼ cup Whole Wheat Four
½ cup White Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon
¾ cup Pumpkin
1 large Egg
about 1 1/2 cups Milk, fat-free
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to its warm setting. I like to place my pancakes in the oven to stay warm while I am making them. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Blend wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. Add in chocolate chips. Or you can add the chocolate chips to the pancakes before flipping them.
Preheat the griddle on medium heat. Make sure the grill is hot. If a drop of water sizzles the grill is ready. Cook about 2-minutes or until the bubbles start to pop. Then turn over and cook for about another minute. Place in oven to keep them warm.
Serve your stack of whole-wheat pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips. You can add a few chocolate chips to the top pancake and they will melt nicely plus it makes the plate look more attractive. Enjoy!!
