Pumpkin Pancakes

P1050532Recently we have become addicted to my sister in law's pumpkin pancake recipe. Even though it has chocolate chips in it, the recipe is made up of whole wheat flour & pumpkin, so it doesn't send my blood sugar for a loop. The kids love it, and when Samuel sees me making the pancakes he can hardly stand the wait! He yells and shakes his fists at me until I fork over the first pancake off the griddle. Then there is only contented silence. My little guy has polished off as many as 3 pancakes in a single morning. Not bad for a 10 month old!

We eat them like cookies with a glass of milk. They are also tasty with a bit of whipped cream. I don't do syrup with these, but suit yourself! Thanks Ang for an awesome recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups Flour (I use hard white wheat flour)

3 Tbs. Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Ground Allspice
1 tsp. Cinnamon
½ tsp. Ground Ginger

¼ to ½ tsp. Ground Nutmeg
½ tsp. Salt
1 ½ cups Milk
1 cup Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 Egg
2 Tbs. Oil
2 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Stir together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop about a 1/4 cup of batter (an ice cream scoop works great) onto a warm griddle (350 degrees). When edges begin to set and bubbles pop in middle, flip pancakes and cook other side until done. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes about 16 pancakes.

Hint: If you double the recipe it works to use a small can of pumpkin puree from the store. It is a little less than the recipe calls for but it works out just fine.

We just made these this morning, and they are fabulous!! I didn't have Apple Cider Vinegar and used pumpkin pie spice instead of the different spices. We had a little bit of milk, semi-sweet, and white chocolate chips left over from cookies so we used those as well. This is a new family favorite!! Thanks for sharing!

My husband said these were the best pancakes he'd ever had! Instead of chocolate chips, I sprinkled a few chopped pecans on each pancake before flipping. Thanks for the great recipe!
