Sunday Morning Pancakes

I’m usually more of a waffle girl than a pancake girl, but for whatever reason I’ve been craving pancakes like crazy lately.  Every time I came across a pancake recipe or a photo of pancakes, I looked down to find drool on my keyboard.  I figured it was about time to pick a recipe and finally eat some darn pancakes.

I wanted a pancake recipe that was nutritious, easy to make, would keep me full for longer than a half hour, and is delicious of course.  Well my friends, I found a winner.  This recipe is all of those things and MORE!

I made them for the first time a few days ago, and decided they were a necessary repeat for some Sunday morning pancakes today.  I rarely ever get to have a special Sunday breakfast because Sunday is technically a work day for me since I work at my church.  This means an early morning without a lot of dilly-dallying.  However, these pancakes were so easy to make that I could whip them up and still have a special Sunday morning breakfast without feeling rushed.  Score!

I followed Gina’s recipe exactly except I used applesauce in place of pumpkin because I didn’t have any pumpkin on hand, and I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk.  They still turned out fabulous. I topped mine with some peanut butter and maple syrup.  Delicious!

So please, head over to check out this recipe pronto and make these for your Sunday morning breakfast if you haven’t had breakfast yet.  Or just have a second breakfast.  I won’t judge. Winking smile

    Yay!! I’m glad you made/liked these. Replacing the pumpkin with applesauce is a good idea, because eventually my pumpkin stash is going to run out !

    Sundays are usually pancake days. I mix the batter the night before, let it sit in the fridge overnight, and make ‘em Sunday morning. Sunday morning is church morning too – so I’d run out of time if I tried to do it all on Sunday morning. So far, hubs is loving: http://www.cravejourney.blogspot.com/2012/02/where-did-you-go.html and I am loving EdibleAsh’s Coconut Flax Pancakes: http://edibleperspective.com/2010/05/here-i-am/ I just add use all almondmilk instead of adding 3T of juice.

    I’m so glad you were able to satisfy your pancake fix! They look absolutely delicious! Peanut butter is definitely my favorite topping, however I also love drizzling warm coconut butter and macadamia nuts on top–a combination that makes me feel like I’m in Hawaii!

    I’m a waffle girl as well. I bake a lot of items with applesauce as a healthy alternative to oil.

    I’ve made pancakes before using Quinoa powder instead of regular flour. Adds some protein to them!

    Hope you have a good Monday and good start to your week!
