Whole wheat pumpkin pancakes with flax seed easy enough for a 2 yr old

Posted on: March 4, 2010

I am not a breakfast-for-dinner kinda gal. In fact, I firmly believe that eggs are not to be consumed in breakfast fashion after 10 am. But pancakes? Pancakes are a whole different story. Pancakes are so close to cake that, like cake, they may be eaten at any time of the day: morning, noon, night, or late, late night.

I used a basic pumpkin pancake recipe, switching one cup white flour for one cup whole wheat and adding 1/4 cup flax seed.

Mix together the dry ingredients.

Next add your wet ingredients (milk, egg, pumpkin puree, vinegar and oil). Mix until thickened.

When you’re cooking pancakes, wait until it’s “bubbly” to flip. The bubbles let you know the side facing down is done.

These pancakes are very filling and have just the right amount of sweetness. I served the pancakes with turkey bacon and applesauce.

Bon Appetit!

We disagree on breakfast-for-dinner…in fact, breakfast for dinner keeps my marriage alive! I get more, “Oh, wow, thanks babe!” for breakfast than for any other meal. However, the excitement is never for the egg part! I am a fan of pumpkin EVERYTHING–breakfast, lunch, or dinner! They look delicious!

I’ll have to try adding flax seed next time I make pumpkn pancakes. Also, was going to pass along this info:

So turkey bacon doesn’t save you much, might as well go for the real thing! 🙂

I agree with Kelsey. One of our kitchen mottos is “You can’t go wrong with breakfast foods!”. I too love pumpkin everything. We loaded up at the farers market last summer and I have not regretted it for a moment!

obviously that word is meant to be read “faRmers”. 🙂

Yummy, can’t wait to try this : )
