Cinnamon-Pecan Pancakes

I ran 12 miles this morning. It was a good run with good friends, and the first 10 miles were great. The last two miles… not so much. It was hilly and I was tired, and I started really feeling the fact that I had been out late the night before. Yeah… and the fact that I opted for wine pairings at dinner, and then we went out for drinks afterward.

Regardless, 12 miles! That’s my longest run (I think) since I ran the Wine Country Half Marathon last October, and it’s the first of many longer runs to come in my marathon training. I was tired and hungry. Pancakes were in order.

Oh yeah.

After a nice warm shower, I did some quick Googling and came up with a basic pancake recipe that didn’t call for an egg, since we were out of eggs (yeah, I know). I ended up using the recipe for Fluffy Eggless Pancakes in this thread as a basis, and since it’s fall and I love pecans, I threw some in. Why not?

Of course, we didn’t have syrup, but that was okay.

Nora didn’t mind.

Obviously I need to go to the store soon.

Cinnamon-Pecan Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp sugar*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • ½ cup pecan pieces, toasted
  1. Mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the milk, oil, water, and vanilla, and mix until incorporated. The batter will be a little lumpy. Set aside to rest for a few minutes.
  2. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, pour it into the bowl with the batter and mix.
  3. Using a ladle or a measuring scoop, pour about ¼ cup of batter onto the pan for each pancake. Sprinkle a handful of pecan pieces over each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and flip with a spatula. Cook until golden brown and serve warm.
* I used coconut palm sugar, since I am trying to go a month without processed sugar. I cheated last night, though... dessert was part of the Restaurant Week menu at Foreign & Domestic, and who am I to turn down a course? That's just silly.

  1. They look fabulous. I love that even hungry you still had the energy to figure out the recipe.

  2. Dude. You know I love you. That is why I can call you out on the sugar. I like your justification though 🙂

    For what it’s worth, I caved on my gluten free kick today and ate Andrea’s tasty cookies. Then afterwards I hopped back on the wagon and ate a bunless burger for dinner. 🙂

    • Yeah, I am so off the wagon. I ate a cupcake at Andrea’s today (Nora took a longer-than-usual nap, so we went by after the party). And then I had dessert again tonight (again using the restaurant week excuse). I am bad. Back on the wagon tomorrow, and tagging an extra 2 days onto the end of my month!
