I love the flavors of fall and winter. Cranberries, citrus, cinnamon, pumpkin, apple … and the combinations of these ingredients are practically endless. Cinnamon apple, apples and pumpkin, cranberries and citrus. The latter is one of my favorites. It’s fresh yet comforting. And so, I decided to make a batch of Sugar-Free Orange Cranberry Pecan Pancakes (can you get more comforting than pancakes?). I started with the delicious combination of orange and cranberry and then I threw in some pecans for a little extra fall flair!
Although these pancakes were inspired by the flavors of fall, they don’t give in to the trend of over-indulging during this season. Instead, they are made sugar-free with Swerve products – Brown (a brown sugar equivalent – minus the blood sugar spike) and Swerve’s Pancake & Waffle Mix (a grain-free mix that uses Swerve for a hint of sweetness).

1Combine the cranberries, orange juice, and Swerve Brown in a deep saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and let simmer for 10 minutes or until the cranberries pop and the syrup thickens a bit.
2In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and 2 tablespoons oil. Add the pancake mix and stir well. Let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the pecans.
