Hi everyone! I’m Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy. I’m married to a hunky husband and am the mom of four crazy boys, who are always hungry. 🙂 Since I’m a busy mom, I like to make and blog about meals that are quick, easy and (mostly) healthy with the occasional treat thrown in. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be here today! I love The Recipe Critic and am always inspired by Alyssa’s recipes and photography. Thanks for having me!

So, like I said, four boys. They eat me out of house and home (as my mom likes to say). But they are my built-in taste-testers, which I guess is a good thing, right? Who else would eat all the stuff I make?!

Anyway, my oldest, who’s a big bad 6th grader now, loves breakfasts. Pancakes are his ultimate favorite thing in the whole entire world. If I announce that it’s breakfast for dinner, he seriously does a happy dance. I usually end up making a big breakfast a couple times a week, mostly for him. These pancakes are one of his favorites and a fall breakfast staple in our house.

Put simply, they are amazing. They’re fluffy, filling and delicious. The pumpkin makes them moist but isn’t overwhelming. It’s just the perfect amount of pumpkin. Of course the fact that these are “skinny” means you can go right ahead and slather them with butter and syrup! 😉 I hope you give these pancakes a try and then come visit me over at Yummy Healthy Easy for some more delicious recipes. See ya soon!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 8 Pancakes


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white all-purpose flour can use 2 cups all-purpose if white whole wheat isn't available
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar.
  • In another medium sized mixing bowl, combine egg whites, milk, oil and pumpkin. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture and stir until just moistened. If batter seems too thick, add a little milk to thin it out to desired consistency.
