Pumpkin Pancake/Waffle | Recipe
When I first started playing with this recipe, I made it as a waffle. This TOTALLY still works as a waffle, however I personally prefer my waffles to be light and crispy. In this recipe, I've opted to use a healthier flour (whole wheat) which creates a hearty/dense texture that is much better suited for pancakes, in my opinion. Also, because I tend to use sweet toppings (like maple syrup and fruits) I've created a batter that is less sweet for balance. I really hope you enjoy these! If you make too many, freeze them! This recipe will make 10 - 12 pancakes.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together.
  2. In a separate bowl, first whisk together the plant milk and apple cider vinegar, until frothy. Then add the remaining wet ingredients and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry, and stir to combine. Do not over mix!
  4. PANCAKES: Over medium-high heat, lightly grease a skillet with coconut oil and pour 1/4 cup of batter into the pan. Once bubbles start to surface, flip the pancake over and continue to cook until golden brown.
  5. WAFFLES: Prepare the batter as instructed, but use 1/3 cup of batter for each waffle (or go according to the waffle iron manufacturer's directions) and spread it out a bit once on the hot iron. *Use a non-stick cooking spray instead of the extra coconut-oil to prep the iron, prior to pouring on any batter*
  6. Garnish with toppings of choice: fruits, nuts, 100% pure maple syrup...
