Spiced Up & Stacked Pumpkin Butter Pancakes For One

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 7, 2010

I am downright giddy this morning.

20101007-IMG_4495

The sun is finally here and the temperature is warm! And it is supposed to stay this way for the Thanksgiving weekend.

I feel like running a marathon.

Ok, maybe not a full marathon, but I am excited for my run today. ;)

Yesterday I got out for a 4 mile run and it was glorious. If there is one thing I have learned it is that no matter how gloomy the weather, getting outdoors will always boost my mood! I felt amazing after my run yesterday (and no falls).

This morning I had some pancake business to take care of after yesterday’s debacle…

Meet yesterday:

Spiced Up & Stacked Pumpkin Butter Pancakes For One

Adapted from my healthy Spelt Pancakes For One 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup stone ground Kamut flour (or flour of choice)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon + dash of nutmeg + dash ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • Pecans
  • Homemade Pumpkin Butter

 

Directions: Grease and preheat a skillet on the stovetop. In a medium sized bowl, mix the dry ingredients (baking powder, flour, sugar, sea salt, spices). In a small bowl mix the wet ingredients (vanilla, almond milk, coconut oil (melted). Add wet to dry and whisk well. Pour less than 1/4 cup per pancake and cook until bubble form. Flip and cook until golden on the opposite side. Layer with Homemade Pumpkin Butter and pecans and sprinkle with coconut. Serves 1.

I’m seriously addicted to this Homemade Pumpkin Butter.

At each meal, I ask myself: Is there any way I can somehow incorporate pumpkin butter? ;)

These were incredibly delicious.

Today is the last day for voting in the Project Food Blog Challenge #3. I would greatly appreciate your support in carrying me into the next round!

I’m off to bake up my orders and hopefully cap the work day with some much needed paper work and some last minute baking for Thanksgiving.

Have a great day! :)

Nice weather can make all the difference in a run. Fall is such a perfect time because it’s just cool enough and the gorgeous scenery makes the run just fly by!

I’ve missed your pancake posts. These look amazing! :D

I love the new “possibly related posts.” Just discovered your coconut peanut butter pancakes! Nice addition :)

Lea @ Healthy Coconut October 7, 2010 at 9:09 am

Beautiful pictures of fall Angela. I noticed these pancakes (the actual pancake) are fluffier than the spelt for one pancake….or maybe my eyes got so big when I saw them that they look fluffy :)

I love that you used coconut oil in this recipe.

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 7, 2010 at 9:13 am

I added more baking powder this time so that might have something to do with it…and also the Kamut flour perhaps?

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat October 7, 2010 at 9:10 am

YAY for sunshine! I also went out and took a bunch of tree photos on my way to work this morning – how weird is that?? The pumpkin butter looks delish, and sounds like a great alternative to syrup. I’m not a big maple syrup girl so I think I’ll try this next!

Your house seriously looks like Fall. I LOVE it!! Fall is seriously my fav season! I can almost smell the crisp air, pumpkin, and cinnamon coming from your house! haha

I made some cranberry cinnamon maple granola yesterday, and seriously, my house smelled like the holidays. That smell made me so happy inside!

She must really love thanksgiving.” And then today in your post, you mentioned that thanksgiving is this weekend… and I googled it, and I am so sorry! I thought you were slightly crazy ;) enjoy your thanksgiving! And pumpkin butter is absolutely amazing, I bought the one in trader joes when they were in stock, but I shall make a homemade batch soon :)

Angela,

Those pancakes look excellent!

I don’t know if you’ve done it before, but I tried adding a tablespoon (heaping) of canned pumpkin, a dash of ginger, and a dash of nutmeg to your single serving spelt pancake recipe, and it was amazing! So amazing it’s been my breakfast for three days straight. Worth a try if you haven’t done it already. Especially good with walnuts as a topping.

Hi Angela,
In the last few weeks I have been having so much fun trying your recipes, with much success! I tried these pancakes this morning, with almond flour instead of kamut. The pumpkin butter turned out delicious. The pancakes however totally fell apart. Do you think it is the almond flour that did me in? They tasted good, but just did not stick together at all.
Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Dana
