Simple Baked Italian Oregano Meatballs.
Too much excitement is happening over these pancakes at the moment.
I was trying so hard to save them for my Friday post, but I just couldn’t wait. I had to share them with you, NOW!
They are pancake heaven in every way possible. Perfect for a first chilly autumn day. You know, one of those frosty mornings when all you want to do is stay wrapped in a blanket. Kind of perfect with October beginning this week. Things should really be starting to feel fall like. Which means, you people who don’t live in a frigidly cold climate will finally be starting to share in my excitement!!
YES. This makes me so happy!!
Ok. SO I have to keep this post short today. Not because I am busy, tired or have nothing to chat about, but more because I really just want you to be able to make these pancakes as soon as humanly possible.
Now I know for a lot of you that probably won’t be until Saturday or Sunday. I get it, you people have things like work and school and well, a life. But maybe, just maybe, one of you will have the week off, or the day off? Or maybe you are planning on going in late.
I don’t know, but my point is, the sooner you can make these pancakes happen, the better. <–FACT.
Words cannot describe my love for these hotcakes. They taste a little like gingerbread, but have more cinnamon than ginger. They’re perfectly sweet and oh so buttery, AND that candied butternut squash is so good, it should really have it’s very own post.
Not being dramatic…just stating the facts.
Let me start with the pancakes themselves. They’re really just simple spiced pancakes made with almond flour, cinnamon, ginger and molasses. It’s an easy, uncomplicated batter to mix up… but oh so flipping delicious. Like I said, pancake heaven.
Next up, the candied butternut squash. Again, very simple, only requires a few ingredients and beyond addicting. Think of it as healthy fall candy. Just mix the butternut squash with a little butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. Then roast in the oven until warm and caramelized. I know it may seem odd to be eating butternut squash as a pancake topping, but you’d do it with pumpkin, right? Yeah, well this is pretty much the same thing. And hey, Mr. Pumpkin shouldn’t get to steal all of the spotlight. I mean, didn’t he learn about sharing?
And last, but obviously not least, the maple butter. This is just maple and butter whipped together, but umm? What could not be amazing about that. Clearly all our pancakes NEED maple butter. <–Truth.
I also topped my pancakes with thin apple slices, toasted almonds and kind of a lot of maple syrup. You don’t REALLY need extra maple, but then again you do. It’s fall, maple everything!
My plan is to surprise Asher with these pancakes on Friday and then tell her she gets to play hooky from school. I am watching her for the next few days, so you know, what I say goes.
Well, maybe not the hooky part, but the pancakes for sure. A little Friday treat never hurt….and then it’s Harry Potter weekend for us girls. So pumped!
Also, does planning your weekend on a Tuesday mean Friday might come a little faster? Cause man, that would be awesome. For realz.
So what do you say? Wanna play hooky from the adult world and make pancakes during the week?

I mean, is that even a question? Look at these spiced almond pancakes with candied butternut squash…of course you do. No really, look hard…YOU DO!
These are phenomenal! I just made them with some Trader Joe’s chicken apple maple sausage for a breakfast for dinner situation (I’m SO ready for fall hahaha); and I can’t wait to make them again!
Thank you so much Laura! I am so happy this recipe turned out so well for you! xTieghan
I just made these and all I can say is YUM! Best pancakes ever. I was out of all purpose flour so I used spelt. The pancakes were SO fluffy but at the same time the almond flour gave them a really nice bite. The butternut was soooo good on top!!! I highly recommend this recipe.
Awesome! SO happy you loved these, thank you!
These look amazing!!
Thank you so much, Molly!
These look AMAAAAAAAAAAZING! And your photos are gorg!
Can you sub coconut oil for butter?
Yes, that will be great! Thanks!
What does Harry Potter weekend involve? Sounds fun – and will be especially if it involves these pancakes. Have you tried making them GF ever?
The candied butternut squash is genius! I would love to put these on the delicious stack on the pancakes!
Hi! These look great, but we don’t have maple syrup where I live (or if there is it’s either expensive or hard to find). Can I substitute it for honey?
Yes, honey will be great! 🙂
These look so flipping amazing – love the candied butternut squash and maple butter! And you even have molasses in the pancake batter for extra caramelly flavour? SO good!
Beautiful.Love your food photography and details, really helps,
thank you so much for sharing
Saw this recipe on Foodgawker and knew it had to be yours! Your photography style is so distinctive. And your food always looks yummy!

These pancakes look DIVINE! And the candied squash is an awesome idea.
Candied butternut squash?! My mouth is watering!
This stack of pancakes is just what my Tuesday needs. Suddenly I think it’s going to be a breakfast dinner night! 🙂
