"These hearty pancakes are tasty and stick to your ribs. The pumpkin and pecan work well together and the vanilla extract adds a great flavor. They taste sweet and rich, but don't have much sugar or fat." — firegirl

1 1/2 cups
whole wheat pastry flour
multigrain hot cereal (uncooked)
1 1/2 teaspoons
finely chopped pecans
I used brown sugar-maple oatmeal for the whole grain cereal and lowfat buttermilk instead of regular milk. As with most pancakes with oatmeal, I usually let it sit for 15 minutes or more so the oatmeal has a chance to soak up some of the liquid and puff up. I wisked the dry ingredients together, then added the combined wet ingredients and gently folded it into the dry until just moistened. Very good. I served this with butter pecan syrup and bacon. The kids and I really liked this. NOTE: This recipe made quite a bit, so I froze them in two's for busy mornings. All I have to do is throw them in the microwave.
For those who substitute things, please note that acidity level in pancakes affects the rise of the soda. So buttermilk will give more lift than yogurt, and milk none at all. Also if you sub oatmeal you should grind it a bit in a blender or food processor. Letting the batter rest is wise. And I agree, this needs a bit of oil or butter in the batter, some spice and half the vanilla.
These are delicious! Made them 2 days in a row! One time, I used 10 grain cereal for the crunch, the other time, I used oatmeal. The pecans add a nice taste and texture. I subbed honey for the sugar, and that is wonderful!
These are great, and I love how healthy they are! I've made them a few times now, using plain Greek yogurt, which bumps up the protein/calcium content. Also add a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to accentuate the pumpkin/fall flavors. I also go with chopped walnuts, since they've got more protein and Omega-3s than pecans.
mmmmm.. soo good! These are super filling and stick with you for awhile, but so very tasty! The first day I made them I put a little pumpkin pie spice in some sugar and sprinkled them with it... and the next day when I used the rest I put some fresh whipped cream over the top and we had them for dessert!! : ) I added some ground flax seeds in place of 1/2 cup ww flour but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks it was exactly what I wanted them to be! : )
Served these with the Apple Cider Syrup from "Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup By: JEANETTE B" on this site. Excellent choice for a chilly fall morning. I used walnuts instead of pecans, brown sugar instead of white, cutting back to a quarter cup. I used fresh baked pureed pumpkin, not canned. Next time I will add a teaspoon or 2 of pumpkin pie spices. These are heavy and solid, maybe a Tbsp or two of oil or melted butter might help to make these a little lighter.
I was disappointed with these pancakes. They were too thick, hard to turn and weren't as flavorful as I expected. The only substitution I had to make was using oatmeal for the multigrain hot cereal. It seems like it should have some type of oil. I would rate this two stars for being edible but will not make again. Maybe the oatmeal affected the texture, so I ranked this three stars.
I used more flour and no cereal, 15 oz of pumpkin and 8 oz of vanilla yorgurt, soy milk rather than whole milk and only enough to thin down the batter, not 1 cup. Not as fluffy as regular pancakes but certainly much healthier and tasty too.
