Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

This photo is just the best: “Bad Puppy waits for humans to look away so he can eat all 6 pancakes in one bite without chewing.”

Because it is Fall. That is all. Need I further justify why I’m posting 3 pumpkin recipes in sequence? Yes I’ve jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon and not ashamed one bit!

Jairus actually made these so I can’t take full credit. He used this recipe:

Cookie and Kate Vegan Pancake Recipe

…and added a few key ingredients to autumnize them. Such as:

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

They were perfectly fluffy and pumpkin-spicy. You can adjust the spices to your liking; this is just a guide. Of course they taste 1 million times better with REAL maple syrup, not that yucky high fructose corn syrup that you buy at the grocery store that is artificially flavored to imitate maple syrup. It just so happens that I date a bona fide mountain man that I kidnapped a while back from backwoods New Hampshire who makes his own REAL maple syrup from scratch. Not even kidding. He taps maple trees and collects all the liquid and boils it for a gagillion hours until it is the perfect color and consistency. Its the real deal!
