Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes


Pancakes made with pumpkin, perfect for fall!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk + 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice (this was my attempt to make buttermilk-ish pancakes without buttermilk.  You can substitute buttermilk, or any milk + the lemon juice)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (if you don’t have agave you could try honey or brown sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon all spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pure maple syrup


  1. Measure your milk to almost 1 1/2 cups, but not quite.  Add the lemon juice and let it sit for about five minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, wheat germ, salt, baking soda, and spices.
  3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs.  Add the milk, yogurt, pumpkin puree, agave nectar, and vanilla and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Pour the wet ingredient onto the dry and mix until there are no dry spots.
  4. Allow the batter to sit while the griddle or your pan preheats.  Add a little butter and start cooking the ‘cakes!  I used about 1/4 cup amount per pancake and allowed them to spread out a little thinly.  Make sure you don’t try to flip them too early.  Look for bubbles in the center and the edges should be starting to brown.
  5. Drizzle your pancakes with pure maple syrup.
