Recipe of the Week: Spiced Butternut Squash and Walnut Pancakes


www.saywhatyouneedtosayblog.comLauren’s Recipe of the Week

There is nothing quite more satisfying than waking up on a cool rainy morning, crawling out of a warm bed, and anticipating a plate of fluffy pancakes for breakfast.  I usually reserve on day a week to living out this tradition.

It’s true that pancakes take a bit more involvement, time, and planning ahead; but, if you have the right ingredients on hand, there really isn’t much into putting together a wholesome stack of delicious flapjacks.

I rarely make my pancakes from scratch as I find that there are many suitable mixes on the market, my staple being Shiloh Farms Sprouted Spelt Pancakes Mix.  It’s organic, 100% whole grain, and incredible easy.

The key into making pancakes a truly special treat is to add in a few extra ingredients to give them a gourmet twist.  One of my favorite add-ins is pumpkin; however, this morning, I realized I had some leftover butternut squash puree in my fridge that needed to be used.  The result was one of the best pancakes recipes I’ve created to date.

Enjoy!
