Pumpkin Pancakes

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is focused on spreading the message that the best prevention for diabetes starts early in life, through maintaining a healthy lifestyle and developing good habits at a young age.  I completely agree, so I’m super excited to partner with the the ADA in conjunction with Kitchen PLAY and be a part of 30 Days of Family Health.  This month bloggers have joined with the ADA to bring you various recipes found in diabetic cookbooks.   Make sure to check out my Fresh Picked Apple Crunch Cake, too!

One of my favorite things about fall is all things pumpkin.  Not only does pumpkin taste good, it’s also packed full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.  I cook with pumpkin as much and as often as I can.  So when I had to choose one recipe out of the Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cookbook, I went looking for a pumpkin recipe.  I love this cookbook! It’s organized by the calendar so you can choose to the section for the time of year and find great recipes built around foods that are in season.  I found this pumpkin pancake recipe in the fall section.

These pumpkin pancakes are so full of flavor – my sister and son both loved them.  But I did have a little trouble getting them to cook fully in the middle.  I think the batter was just too moist and next time I’ll cut back the milk to 1 cup or use just half a can of pumpkin. the recipe below is the exact recipe from The Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cookbook.
