We had breakfast for dinner today to mix things up...as I was craving pumpkin pancakes for the past few days and saw this recipe this morning and went out to buy all the ingredients. I could wait until breakfast the next morning to make these. By the way, I practice the alkaline diet, but really wanted pancakes since it is fall and I have a hard time getting my toddlers to eat veggies. So this is a great way to hide the veggies in the pancakes. So I did quite a bit of substituting and my rating is based on the substitute version and I always use organic everything. I replaced buttermilk for the milk, I cooked a pumpkin to make my own pumpkin puree, used homemade apple sauce for the oil, apple cider vinegar for the vinegar, whole wheat flour for the flour (next time I'll try 1 cup wheat flour and 1 cup of ground oats), added one extra tbl of brown sugar (next time I'll use coconut sugar, it is the healthy version of sugar), replaced the ginger with pumpkin pie spice, and replaced vanilla extract for the allspice, next time I'll add 1 tbl of fresh lemon juice. This recipe can hide 2 veggie and 1 fruit serving in the pancakes for the kids! hehe
