When life gives you lemons, make pumpkin pancakes?

What is up with the constant rainy cold weather Richmond? Where is the sun, I haven’t seen it in days?! 

So once again I woke up to yet another cold morning, rain and clouds all around…. and more of the same for tomorrow 😦 This makes me sad.  However next week looks like sun and mid-60s… right in time for the work week grrr!!

But such is life, and it must go on.  So in lieu of heading to the farmer’s market and risking getting pneumonia (jk peeps) I decided to start my morning with some pumpkin pancakes 🙂

As the saying goes “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade pumpkin pancakes?” 😉

I scrounged up these guys from around the kitchen


Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 tblsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tblsp brown sugar

Wet ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 tblsp agave
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tblsp veg oil

Mix wet and dry ingredients seperately, then combine and stir to blend.

Drop into a hot pan coated with cooking spray (I used 1/4 cup measurements) and cook til done, flipping half way through.



Serve with some maple syrup 🙂


Ahhh now that’s what I call a good breakfast!  They were doughy and very thick/filling.  I loved the spices throughout and am really exited that I have 7 more leftover to eat today tomorrow 😉

Plans for today are to plan out some meals for next week, do some grocery shopping, errands with The Man (first Saturday he hasn’t had to work in for-ev-ah, so happy!) and do some things around the house.  Due to this yucky weather we will probably be staying around the homestead and keeping warm & dry! 

Alright bloggin’ peeps, I’m off to do some Elise Gulan Yoga.Fitness.Plus. on ExerciseTV — I think this yoga sesh will warm me from the inside out on this cold day! 🙂

Have a great Saturday and see you back soon!
