Fantastic Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/2 C white whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup skim milk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

2 large eggs, separated

2 Tbl. unsweetened applesauce

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat griddle to medium to medium high (300-350)

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

3. In another bowl, combine the milk though vanilla (with just egg yolks). Mix well.

4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.

5. In a 3rd bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff (I look to use my stand mixer for this, but a whisk or hand mixer would work too).

6. Gently fold the egg whites into the pancake batter, mixing until smooth.

7. Spray the griddle with cooking spray (use a 1/4 cup measure for equally sized cakes), and cook each pancake until lightly browned on each side, about 1 minute per side.

Top with pecans if you’d like! Yumm!
