now pumpkin pancakes are no new thing. we have been wanting to make pumpkin pancakes for some time now. it actually took us a few trials 4 attempts to get these pancakes where we were satisfied with them. they are not vegan but can totally be made with a flax gel to replace the egg. also if you do not eat gluten-free then you can sub the gluten-free flours for any flour of your liking. (1 cup total flour)

we love pumpkin pancakes almost as much as we love our pumpkin donuts. but we do admit we have some trouble with making really amazing gluten-free pancakes. sometimes we want light and fluffy, as other times want a thin pancake, but we prefer thick pancakes!  *as you may have noticed we have been slowly updating our recipe page, check out our pancakes page to see all our other pancakes

Twins Question: What is your favorite childhood memory of Christmas? Any fun traditions?

We remember making sugar cookies and decorating them with our older sisters. We remember not sleeping the night before, waiting with excitement to first check out our stockings!! Even though we grew up with no fireplace, we still had stockings. A favorite memory for us. We started to play, which seemed liked hours before the rest of our family would show up to have breakfast then open more gifts. Good times…looking to making many new memories with our niece!
