Ok, I will go so far to say that these are the best pancakes your toddler will ever taste (well, until you allow them on some chocolate-chip pancakes, which is not a fair competition by the way ^^). But seriously, these pumpkin pancakes are so delicious that I almost did not believe how few ingredients went in the pancake batter. You can literally make a batch of these deliciously fluffy pumpkin pancakes within about 5 minutes (*given you have some pumpkin purée ready, otherwise it’ll take about 15 minutes ;). I served these with some coconut cream, mixed seeds (for some extra healthy fat), raw honey and bee pollen. This is the bomb texture combination! The softness of the pumpkin purée, the smoothness of the coconut cream combined the crunchiness of the seeds and bee pollen will make you want to go back for more and more. *drool*
I put 4 of these pumpkin pancakes on Angela’s plate and walked away to get the toppings and guess what? When I returned she already finished 1 and was munching on the next one! That’s how good they are. We were actually fighting for some last pieces of these yummy pancakes at the end of our breakfast ^^. These are definitely toddler-approved (and they certainly make a great breakfast for the rest of your family too).
As it is pumpkin season now, I try to use fresh pumpkin as much as possible. But I also make some extra pumpkin purée on the side and freeze them so I will always have instant access to this Vitamin-A rich goodness. Oh while we are at it, if you have a baby & a toddler then this is a win for you! You can feed your baby the pumpkin purée and make your toddler some tasty pumpkin pancakes ;).
Note: if you use canned pumpkin purée instead of making fresh one, you might need to adjust amount of coconut milk a bit to get the batter to the right consistency (canned pumpkin purée might be a bit wetter).
