whole wheat pumpkin pancakes

I've been out of town four out of the five past weekends and this Saturday was one of the first days where I didn't need to be anywhere-- at least not until later on.

I chose not to go tailgate with the husband at the UW game (he headed out at 4 a.m. to catch the filing of ESPN College Game Day-- insane) and so it was me and my morning -- stretched out before me.

The husband is pretty great, but he's got a major flaw: he doesn't like big breakfasts/brunchs. He claims they make him feel lazy or something. Me, on the other hand, I love them. So when the husband is gone and I have a leisurely morning awaiting me, I eat a really good breakfast.

And because it's October and all, I decided to eat a really good breakfast that had pumpkin pancakes.

I suggest you find yourself a leisurely morning soon and make these.

whole wheat pumpkin pancakes (adapted from here)

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbs baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup milk
1 egg -- lightly beaten
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 tbs coconut oil

mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl
mix all the wet ingredients in a small bowl
beat the egg separately with a whisk for a minute or so, stir into wet ingredients
slowly stir in wet ingredients into dry

cook 'em up!
