Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

15 Oct

Fall is finally in the air. Leaves are changing and the air has a chill in it. Front porches are decorated with pumpkins, mums, hay bales, and corn stalks. I love this time of year!



There is something about the fall that makes me want to bake. I love to make pumpkin bread and muffins, but sometimes I want something less heavy. These Pumpkin Buttermilk pancakes are wonderful. They are soft, fluffy and slightly sweet. My children love them with pure maple syrup and butter. You will love this recipe. One bite and you will taste autumn. Enjoy!


Freezer pancake mix!

24 Aug

With school on the horizon I know I will have to whip up some fast and healthy breakfasts for my 2 kiddos. I don’t usually have time to make pancakes from scratch on week days, but with this new trick, I can definitely do it!!! Take all the dry ingredients and put them in a freezer bag or large plastic container and mark the wet ingredients on the outside. This will allow you to cook up some healthy and delicious pancakes in a few minutes! I also froze tons of fruit on cookie sheets and then threw them in bags, so I have blueberries, sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, small chunks of apples etc at a moments notice. These are perfect thrown in your pancakes, as a topper or as a great snack for lunch boxes. Here is my basic pancake recipe broken down for you with variations. This will make 6 batches of 8 pancakes. If the dry mix is kept in the freezer it will last 4-6 months.

Buttermilk Crepes (2 pts + each)

4 Mar

I eat a big breakfast every morning, usually an egg white omelet with turkey sausage and laughing cow cheese, but some days I want something sweet.  When my sister was visiting after I had the baby, she whipped up these delicious buttermilk crepes. I enjoyed them thoroughly with whipped cream and strawberries and figured this was definitely something I would have to give up after I started watching what I was eating. So this week on my daughter’s 6th birthday, I decided to whip up some crepes for her special breakfast. I made the batter the night before and as I was adding the ingredients I wondered….how many points are these crepes exactly. After entering all my ingredients into my recipe finder, I was shocked and pleased to see that they are only 2 pts + each! Yeah!!!! So not only did she have a special treat on her birthday, I did as well and I didn’t need to feel guilty about it at all!! Enjoy!
