Healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes

Are you pumpkined out yet? Everywhere I look in the foodie blog world I am seeing tons of delicious looking pumpkin recipes…and here I am once again a little bit behind. I have had my share of “pumpkins” this past month (construction paper kinds, craft kinds, plastic kinds, carving kinds) but haven’t actually “had” any pumpkin the way I would really want to!! I love pumpkin, as I am seeing a lot of you do as well. (and apparently so does my son who just walked up to me and randomly requested for us to make a pumpkin pie today – it’s only 7am!)

Healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes
What did you all do with your extra hour on Sunday? We were up making pancakes! Pumpkin Pancakes! And they were good, real good…my kids gobbled them up. I wish I made a double batch so I could have thrown some in the freezer for later. I found this healthy whole wheat version of these pancakes on Pinch My Salt early Sunday morning. This was my first time visiting Nicole’s blog and I am so hooked!

I just love the color of these pancakes! If you would rather not use whole wheat flour, just substitute the white flour for it. I also sweetened ours up just a bit more with some agave nectar.

Enjoy your Monday and don’t forget to Vote!!

Healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes


  • 1 C. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C. cake flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. ground ginger
  • 1/2 t. ground nutmeg
  • 1 C. buttermilk
  • 1 C. canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T. oil
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. dark brown sugar


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the first eight ingredients (whole wheat flour through nutmeg). In a separate bowl, whisk together the last six ingredients (buttermilk through brown sugar).
2. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and blend together with a wooden spoon until just combined. Lumps are ok, just make sure all the flour on the bottom of the bowl is mixed in. If batter seems too thick to pour, you can gently stir in a little more buttermilk.
3. Drop pancakes by ladleful onto a medium-hot griddle. Pancakes are ready to turn when the edges start to look a little dry and you can see small bubbles forming on the surface.

  14. Hi Maris! That is a good question…I’m not much of a baker so when I see cake flour I see all purpose flour! (Please please don’t judge my lack of baking knowledge ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    So I did some research…and I found this great post on subbing all purpose flour for cake flour. I guess there is a way to “make” cake flour…
    here’s the link –

  15. Liz from Meal Makeover Moms here. Your pancakes look yummy. I will definitely try them. My kids are huge fans of pumpkin pancakes and muffins — especially when I add a few mini chocolate chips. I also toss in some ground flaxseed for extra nutrition!

  16. These pancakes look delicious, especially with the sausage patty next to them! Pass the syrup.
