Pumpkin - Cookies, Pancakes, and Brownies!

So this time around I am going to post a few regular old (non-keto) recipes! Jason and I are going for a quick 2-week stretch (possibly a little longer) right before Thanksgiving, but that doesn't start until Monday!

So, just tonight we made this:
Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh my gosh! So tasty! We were out of quick oats and just dropped that ingredient, and I added one extra egg for more cakiness. So good.

Pumpkin Pancakes
For these I just use a basic from-scratch pancake recipe, and sub in pumpkin instead of eggs! I think this is the recipe we usually use for regular pancakes - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/good-old-fashioned-pancakes/

I also add about a teaspoon of cinnamon, but I love cinnamon! A tasty cinnamon glaze on top is amazing -

Glaze Recipe
2 tbs butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups confectioner's sugar
2 tbs milk


Can you tell I'm on kind of a pumpkin kick? LOVE pumpkin! Well what goes better with pumpkin recipes than ONE MORE pumpkin recipe?!

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies
Similar to the pancake recipe, I basically just added pumpkiny goodness to a regular recipe! So find yourself an awesome brownie recipe - I like this one: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/cocoa-brownies-recipe/index.html

I used the pumpkin mixture from this recipe:
3 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
3 tbs sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

On top of the brownie mixture in the pan, place spoonfuls of pumpkin mixture and swirl the remaining brownie mixture into it. Makes a cool design and tastes great!

Bake as usual for the recipe.
