Apple Pumpkin Pancakes

I'm a big fan of pumpkin recipes and I feel like the recipes tend to drop out of sight come December so I want to squeeze a couple of them onto my blog this week before it's too late.  

These apple pumpkin pancakes were a hit with the kids and I always love a recipe that can squeeze a veggie into their tummies.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin squash
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 2 tbsp softened butter 
  • 1/2 apple, grated
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup milk

Mix the pumpkin, syrup, egg, butter, apple and milk together in a bowl.  Add the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger and mix.  Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat to cook the pancakes.  Serve with maple syrup.
