Ingredients

  • For Pancakes
  • 1 c. white flour

  • ½ c. whole wheat

  • 2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • ½ tsp. cinnamon

  • ½ tsp. salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 1¼ cup whole milk

  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing the pan

  • 1 c. pumpkin puree, canned

  • For Chocolate Filling
  • 1 c. cream cheese

  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder

  • 2 Tbsp. honey

Directions

  • Sift the first 6 ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until combined; it is ok if there are some lumps.
  • Heat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with oil.
  • Drop about 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture onto the griddle and cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the filling until smooth. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling between two pancakes to make a sandwich.
  • Continue to make the rest of the pancake sandwiches before serving.
