Pumpkin Pancakes


Can't really think of a better way to start my Sunday - 6 warm and fluffy pancakes towered up on a blue plate, waiting for us to just dig in.

In a large bowl, mix together:

- 2/3 cup plain yogurt (Balkan style)
- 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
- 2 tbsp agave syrup
-  1 whole egg

Then add:

- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder (magic powder)

Do not overmix!

Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Pour ~ 1/4cup of the batter into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes, until bubbles start to form and the bottom is golden brown. Flip over to the other side and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until lightly browned.
Repeat with the remaining batter.

  1. What a nice variation! I once made applesauce pancakes and they turned out delicious, will totally tried with pureed pumpkin! By Balkan Style, do you mean the thick yougurt like Greek? Thank you for sharing :)

  2. Is the pumpkin cooked?

  3. They look great! I'll try myself.

  4. Beautiful, comforting, and healthy pancakes. Love the pumpkin variation!
