Whole-wheat vanilla pumpkin pancakes with salted caramel

Whole-wheat pumpkin pancakes with salted caramel

I blame Pinterest for this post. Pinterest with their plethora of pumpkin-filled deliciousness and pumpkin in every way, shape and form filling my timeline. How can you not want pumpkin-everything when you stare at that all day? You can’t, is the answer in case you were wondering. So there I was, thinking about how I could shove pumpkin into anything and everything when I thought of creating these pancakes. I’ve often made pumpkin pancakes before as my kids absolutely love them but I always just serve them with maple syrup or cinnamon sugar. But how could I amp them up?  I took inspiration from my Pumpkin Fritters recipe and topped them with warm salted caramel, toasted pecan nuts and served them with Chantilly cream. That’s one amped up pancake.

I used half whole-wheat flour which really is not to make these healthier because let’s be honest here. These could not be made healthier, no matter how hard you tried. I simply used the whole-wheat flour because I really like the texture it adds. And that’s pretty much it. I mean, you don’t get more indulgent than this but you know how I feel about indulgence every now and then. It’s absolutely necessary. And whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, there is no better breakfast to make this weekend than these insane pancakes! Happy pancaking!
