From DeAnn Draper
Thrivealized by Kay Curtiss

Today's Thrivealized Family Favorite Recipe comes from my sister, DeAnn Draper.  She sent me her Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancake recipe.  I Thrivealized it with our Thrive Sweet Potatoes & our Thrive 10 Grain Pancake Mix.  Here's how I did with it:

Sweet Potato Buttermilk Pancakes
Thrive Sweet Potatoes
Thrive 10 Grain Pancake Mix
1/2 Thrive Sweet Potatoes
1 cup boiling water
1 cup Buttermilk
2 T. Thrive Brown Sugar
1/2 t. Cinnamon
1/8 t. Nutmeg
1/8 t. Ginger 
1 1/2 cups Thrive 10 Grain Pancake Mix
1/3 cup water

Thrive Honey Crystals
Thrive Applesauce
Thrive Cinnamon Honey Butter**
Thrive Applesauce, reconstituted

Add Thrive Sweet Potatoes to boiling water in saucepan with lid.  Turn off heat and let sweet potatoes reconstitute in covered saucepan about 10 minutes.  DO NOT DRAIN.  Pour sweet potatoes with left over water into food processor.  Add buttermilk, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger.  Blend until smooth.  Put Thrive 10 Grain Pancake Mix into mixing bowl.  Add sweet potato mixture & 1/3 cup water.  Blend but don’t over mix.  If you want thinner pancakes, add additional water, a Tablespoon at a time, mixing lightly to desired consistency.
With Thrive Applesauce

Cook on a medium heat skillet greased lightly with butter.  Serve with Thrive Cinnamon Honey Butter & Thrive Applesauce or Thrive Applesauce & Maple Syrup or just Maple Syrup or any number of Thrive Freeze Dried (FD) Fruits plain or made into sauces.
**Thrive Cinnamon Honey Butter
1/2 cup Butter, softened
2 T. Thrive Honey Crystals
2 T. Thrive Brown Sugar
1/2 T. Cinnamon (adjust to taste)

Beat together until smooth.  Keep in covered container.

Original Recipe:  Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes
From DeAnn Draper

3 cups flour 1/4 t. ginger
3/4 tsp. salt 3 T. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda 1 (15 oz) can Libby’s pure pumpkin
1/2 tsp. cinnamon 3 cups buttermilk
1/4 tsp. nutmeg 3 eggs

In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and brown sugar, combining well.  Add pumpkin, buttermilk, and eggs to dry ingredients and mix gently. (If batter seems stiff, add water until it can be easily spooned onto a griddle.)  Heat griddle to medium heat and grease lightly.  Scoop about 1/3 cup of batter onto griddle and let cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Let other side cook again until lightly browned. Repeat these steps until all the batter is gone.
