Pumpkin Turmeric Buckwheat Pancakes

Can you smell it?  Yes, its still summer, but autumn is in the air.  Just around the corner.  Especially for us New Englanders 😉  (So cool that I can say that once again!).  Whether or not this excites or depresses you depends on who you are.  I think autumn is the ultimate season though.  The brisk air, vibrant colors on the trees, autumn nights, leaves rustling in the breeze, bonfires, walks in the woods, hot drinks in hand, bookstores, all things pumpkin flavored.  Just a few of the awesome aspects of autumn.

These Pumpkin Turmeric Pancakes are another 😉

Grain/gluten free, dairy free and sugar free.  Moist and totally delicious.  And taking less than 15 minutes to whip these babies up.  I had five for breakfast this morning.  No regrets there.

Pumpkin Oat Buckwheat Pancakes

Its always the perfect time for all things pumpkin flavored!  This is one of my absolute favorite ingredients to both cook and bake with.  Pumpkin pastapumpkin cheesecakepumpkin pie…I cannot get enough!!  And autumn is not the only ideal time for chowing down on this super good-for-you ingredient.  Much like that silly myth with regard to not wearing white after labor day (who thought of that one, seriously), while pumpkin does tend to be a flavor that goes hand in hand with fall, I think it can and should be eaten in abundance throughout the entire year!!

Here is to luxurious Sunday mornings, brunches that stretch on throughout the morning, breakfast in bed and all things cozy.

This recipe (#36) is refined sugar-free, gluten-free AND lactose-free.  Woo hoo!!!  You can also throw together the batter in less then 10 minutes.  Hows that for outstanding?

Recipe #2!  Anyone who knows me at all is aware of the Brooke fun fact that as of late, pancakes has become one of my most sought after and coveted items to eat. Obsession may be an even better word choice.  Ive even heard the word “addiction” thrown around among friends once or twice.  Just to be clear: I. Love. Pancakes.

I imagine the beginnings of this love affair were planted when, growing up, my Mom often whipped up “Mighty Goods” for my eager brother and me on Saturday mornings.  This was her own pancake recipe and they were, in actuality and not just in name, mighty good.  With that, my already smitten heart took off running.  In fact, the recipe you are reading is a spin-off on her Mighty Goods with my own alterations and tweaks added.  Now, back to pancakes and how awesome they are.
