PUMPKIN PANCAKES & Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

all things yummy pumpkin pancakesI know I sound like many girls when I say this but I LOVE PUMPKIN. When fall comes around I get in such a good mood between the perfect weather and pumpkin flavored food. So with fall coming upon us I decided to make some pumpkin pancakes and boy were they good.

UnfortunatelyI realized I did not have canned coconut milk so what you see above is cool whip but the recipe will be below for it as well.

To make the pancakes you will need:

– 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (I use Libby’s)
– 1/4 cup coconut milk ( can be unsweetened if you preferred)
– 2 egg whites
– 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour
– 1/2 tsp. baking soda
– *1/4 tsp. pumpkin spice
– 1/2 tsp splenda/stevia/sugar ( I used half stevia half splenda)                     – a dash of salt
*(Didnt measure this exact but put about 6 taps of the cinnamon bottle, 2 taps of ground ginger, 2 taps of nutmeg a tap of allspice and a tap of cloves- really is to your likings)

To make these mix the pumpkin, egg whites, vanilla extract and coconut milk in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, sugar, salt & pumpkin spice. Then put the dry ingredients into the wet  ingredients and mix until everything is completely mixed in.  Spray a non stick skillet, put on medium heat and once you put the batter on wait until you see bubbles and flip the pancakes.                                         Once there done top with whatever you would like and ENJOY.

For the coconut milk whipped cream you will need:

-*1 Can of Coconut Milk full fat

– 1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)

– Sweeteners (optional) * (I used 15 oz of coconut milk but use how much you want to make)

To Make this you should have refrigerated the milk overnight. Once you take it out flip the can over. The liquid coconut milk that doesn’t harden will now be at the top.  Then open the can from the bottom. (If you don’t flip the can before opening you will spoon out the hardened coconut and just be careful to not get the liquid.) Pour out the liquid into a different bowl if you would like to save it for other use other wise pour into the garbage. Then scoop out the hardened cream grab a hand mixer and whip til you see small peaks. Now is when you can add the vanilla or other sweeteners like confectioners sugar if you would like.
