It's Saturday morning and I am up before the chickens as usual. This morning I would like to make some pancakes for my family....but not just any pancakes...whole wheat, PUMPKIN pancakes! These can be served with your choice of syrup whether it be regular, light, or sugar free syrup, or smuckers has organic jellies and jams.
How about an easy homemade sugar free apple butter that is made in a crock pot. It smells amazing while it is cooking! This will make around 4 cups and is also an awesome gift for the upcoming holidays.
