Pumpkin Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter Glazed Plums

The tradition of weekend pancakes continues, and this past weekend two types of pumpkin definitely made their way into my breakfast!

I use the Trader Joe's multi-grain pancake mix, add some almond meal and ground flax.
Then, instead of the oil, I added 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, and 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce.
Add 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and start flippin the 'cakes!

As a topping, I knew I wanted to use my pumpkin butter I had, but I also wanted to add something with some texture. Enter: plums.  I deemed them a fall fruit, acceptable to pair with pumpkin.
Cooked apples would also work nicely.

Saute 1 sliced plum with 1 heaping Tbsp pumpkin butter, and 3 Tbsp water.

Let this bubble and reduce, and pull it off the heat, right when it starts to look like a caramel sauce, but before it burns!

Happy Fall :)
