The breakfast project

We have decided to eat more organic/cage free eggs. But being that they are a {lot} more expensive than regular eggs we are going to have to diminish the consumption (which is hard for us since we usually eat eggs everyday for breakfast). That being said I am going to try to come up with healthy and filling breakfast ideas. As I find them I will be posting them here... So, if you are interested, make sure to come back to check them out and maybe try them for yourself. If you have ideas for filling and healthy breakfast feel free to share it here.

I am starting today with Pumpkin pancakes (recipe from here)
Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
A pinch of ground cloves
1 cup milk
6 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree (this is a seasonal item. I stock when the go on sale after Thanksgiving. You can find the large cans for $1. I use what I need and freeze the rest for later)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg

Preparation:

Whisk dry ingredients. In a separate bowl stir together the wet ingredients. Fold mixture into dry ingredients. Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat; pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side; serve with butter and syrup if desired.
This recipe is amazing friends... So yummy. They almost taste like pumpkin cookies. Double the recipe and freeze them for your kid's breakfast. You know, for when you are running late for school in the morning... You'll be happy you did.
