Better Way to Pancakes

With summer days slowly fading and the stress of the holiday season approaching, there is one thing we can all look forward to– Pumpkin spice everything! Here at New You we found a perfect twist to your breakfast routine, and a new way to enjoy the taste of the season. Birch Benders Micro-Pancakery has revolutionized an old-fashioned pancake mix by making it trans-fat free, non-GMO, kosher, and organic, without compromising the taste. With flavors like double chocolate peppermint and six grain cinnamon and varieties like gluten-free, protein, and Paleo, even the strictest of diets will allow for the classic taste of pancakes in the morning. Whip up this recipe for pumpkin fig pancakes and you’ll get everyone in the mood for holidays with none of that processed-pancake-mix guilt.


Pumpkin Fig Pancakes


1 Cup Birch Benders Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix

3/4 Cup Water

2 to 3 Medium Figs, Chopped, plus extra for garnish

Vegetable Oil, for greasing


Time: 20 minutes, Yield: 2 Servings
(recipe available at Birchbenders.com)


  1. Heat a griddle or skillet to medium-high heat. The pan is hot enough when flecks of water sizzle off quickly after contact. If using a cast iron pan, keep an eye on your heat as the pan will hold heat well and you may need to turn down your burner over time.
  2. Lightly grease pan – we like to use about a tablespoon of vegetable oil and use a paper towel to quickly spread and wipe off excess.
  3. Combine Birch Benders, water, and chopped figs.
  4. Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop batter into pan, one or two pancakes at a time, depending on the size of your pan.
  5. Cook until bubbles have formed and popped.
  6. Turn once.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. Top with butter and syrup and garnish with more figs if desired.

If making a larger batch, pancakes can be stored in a 200° oven while you finish cooking.

So so good!
