This past week I made Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti, and had some leftover pumpkin puree in the fridge… (conveniently the exact amount I needed for this recipe). So, into the kitchen I went to make this breakfast! The recipe was very simple to prepare (only took 5 minutes to prep), and the “from scratch” pancakes are delicious!

The taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, and chocolate chips are amazing in these pancakes! Yes, they are a bit sweet, but I figured since we only have pancakes occasionally, it wouldn’t be TOO bad. Here’s how you whip up a batch of these delicious pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes:

Pumpkins are a sign of Fall and that means it is time for pumpkin pancakes!

How To Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and semi-sweet chocolate chips. (Bet you didn’t even break into a sweat…)

Pour pancake batter onto a pre-heated griddle (350 degrees) or large skillet (heated on medium-high) that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray or a little oil. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes or until little air bubbles form on top of the batter.

Recipe Notes

If you do not have buttermilk, you can easily make your own (I did this for the pancakes): Place 1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar in a large measuring cup. Add milk up to the 1 1/2 cup level. Stir. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then use it in the recipe as indicated. It is a perfect substitution!!!
