Easy Butternut Squash Pancakes

I am still making may way through the huge squash featured a week ago.  Which means it's time to start getting creative before it goes bad.  Today I'm making pancakes and then I'll make some of my soup and that should finish it off.

Squash is actually a great thing to keep around, even at your poorest.  It's not only yummy, delicious, and filling, but it can be used to stretch some recipes, like waffles and pancakes.  Adding 1/2 a cup of squash to my pancake recipe added about 4 pancakes worth of low-cal, delicious, breakfast food.


1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup so delicious coconut milk drink, unsweetened, plain
1/2 cup mashed butternut squash
1 egg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  1. Combine everything in a blender and blend until creamy and lump free.
  2. Spray your medium skillet or griddle with your favorite low calorie/no calories cooking spray
  3. Cook as you would normal pancakes.  They may take a bit longer each side.
Makes 8-10 pancakes, 2 large servings of 170 calories each.

Serve with your favorite lite syrup.  Since this batter has no added sugar, I don't recommend eating them plain.
