Pumpkin Pancake Poppers

by Healthy Diva on October 26, 2011


Morning loves!

Last nights post had some great comments, thank you for approving my high dollar food shopping!

Its true though, spending money on good and healthy food can be so beneficial!!

Last night I had some of the best tea, I tend to drink tea at night and i found this new flavor to try.

Stash Decaf Chocolate Hazelnut tea  ;-)

I saw this at the store yesterday, and how could it not be good?

I added stevia and some coconut milk creamer to my cup of tea, it was fabulous!

So when I was at Target yesterday I picked up a new kitchen gadget…

A Nordic Ware pancake popper pan !

I have seen the donut pans around in the blog land, and really do want one of those, but saw this and decided I think this would be a fun new way to eat pancakes  :-D

I decided to make pumpkin poppers!

I used a pumpkin spice mix I got from the co-op  ;-)

Funny Story after Mike saw the new pan…


I call them pancake balls, soooooo as the boys were eating dinner last night, I showed Mike the pan I got. Big mistake! Mike then decided to say, oh your making balls, and was saying it to be funny, then Anthony spit his food out, and they were both cracking up and saying mom’s making balls  8-O

Yup , my husband is as mature as my almost 12 year old son  ;-)

Lets see how good these turned out, meanwhile I just  scarfed them down while blogging!

They turned out awesome!  These were a fun new way to eat pancakes!

I am happy I bought that pan, I have so many more combos I want to do. I was thinking of other combos while eating them this morning, and I think tomorrow will be another popper morning!

I topped them with protein frosting, granola, and maple syrup.

Amazing and I can’t wait to make more tomorrow  :mrgreen:

I think I will make my immature boys some this weekend too, even though the whole time they are eating them, they will probably make jokes  ;-)

Have a great day loves! Be back later  ;-)

Haha – love that :) In all fairness though, even I hate calling anything “balls”. I had to go to Home Depot yesterday to buy caulk and I avoided asking anyone where to find it. :)
Love that pancake popper pan! You should try baking the “balls” halfway and then squeeze some peanut butter or chocolate or anything yummy in the middle. Yum!


2 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 9:05 am

Yes filling them with something is what my plans are!!!!

Haha! Oh yes Caulk is another funny!


3 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance October 26, 2011 at 8:44 am

What! These look so awesome :) What a great idea!


4 Jessica @ Healthy Dairyland October 26, 2011 at 8:48 am

Mmmm chocolate tea! Have you ever had the indulgent teas from Republic of Tea? I tried their chocolate coconut tea at the Restaurant Show this year – amazing!!


5 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat October 26, 2011 at 9:32 am

As silly as your boys are, it’s great they have each other! :) That tea looks delish, I love tea on cold nights. Happy Wednesday, gorgeous!


6 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 11:50 am

Yes! Im so lucky too, that I have them!!

Happy Wednesday love!


7 Jenny October 26, 2011 at 9:35 am

I can’t blame Mike, the word “balls” always makes me giggle too :) These poppers look wonderful!

Happy day to you gorgeous!


8 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 11:49 am

11 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 11:48 am

Yes, it was a little hard to flip them, but it worked!


12 Jessica @ Dishin' About Nutrition October 26, 2011 at 10:26 am

14 Shanna, Like Banana October 26, 2011 at 10:35 am

Who doesn’t love a good ball joke? ;)

I had no idea what those would turn out like, but they look tasty as can be! Especially the flavor!


15 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Yes, they were yum! Im going to make a new combo tomorrow!


16 Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun October 26, 2011 at 10:42 am

Oh! What a fun breakfast idea. And of course you have to go with the pumpkin ones first. Gotta start off on a high note. ;)


17 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:54 pm

Yes, I mean , pumpkin everything right now ; )


18 Ari@ThE DiVa DiSh October 26, 2011 at 10:43 am

19 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:54 pm

Haha! Why thank you for saying my balls are looking good, haha!


20 Mer @mersworld October 26, 2011 at 10:50 am

Those look sooooo good! I’ve always been intrigued by those pans, but never purchased them! Did you stuff them with anything? You should totally put some of your protein frosting in the middle… Have a great day!


21 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:54 pm

I didn’t, I didn’t even think about fun ideas until after I used it right away! I do want to fill them with something, even fruit!!!


22 Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers October 26, 2011 at 10:51 am

Haha – too funny. :) They do look pretty tasty though. Good find!


23 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Yes they were good!!! xo


24 Krista October 26, 2011 at 11:14 am

OMG! I *JUST* posted on my FB page that I was enjoying a mug of that very tea!!! You’ve got some good taste, Katie! HAHA! ;)


25 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Haha! No YOU got the good taste! Hmmmm ok, we both do!!!!!! I posted it about it on my facebook page last night!


26 Kristin @ STUFT Mama October 26, 2011 at 11:28 am

I totally have one of those pans. I used it twice. You’ve inspired me to try it again. Somehow my poppers did NOT look as nice as yours (as they never do with all your delicious food). Thanks for reminding me I had one of those. ha! Now if I could only remember where I put it……


27 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Haha! Kristin, Im glad I could help you remember a forgot about kitchen gadget ; )

It was hard to flip them! But they turned out ok! xo


28 susan October 26, 2011 at 11:40 am

Haha laughing here about the balls!!! Too funny. I need a pancake popper, they look great.


29 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:51 pm

30 Anna @ The Guiltless Life October 26, 2011 at 11:45 am

How have I never heard of pancake poppers?? And chocolate hazelnut tea – um, where have you been all my life??

Love you so much, so grateful that you included my link! You’re all kinds of awesomeness! :)


31 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Love you and YOU are awesome for doing that post, I love the whole idea of it!!


32 Sara K October 26, 2011 at 12:03 pm

33 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 12:49 pm

34 Ty October 26, 2011 at 2:01 pm

35 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Awwww : p it is great!


36 Kristen @ Red Velvet Life October 26, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Oooh I have one of these pans but I’ve never used it! Now I’m inspired :) And I am a huge tea drinker . . . need to find this one, yum! :)


37 Healthy Diva October 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm

I hope you bring it out! It is a fun little pan!


38 Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats October 26, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I love it! I always wanted an ebelskiver pan every time I would see the Williams Sonoma catalog. Mini things are just so much more fun to eat than regular stuff! lol.
