These pancakes were inspired by my friend Stacey Allen. She introduced me to pumpkin pancakes about five years back or so. She gave me these pancakes, or something very similar to pancakes made from this recipe, and I fell in love instantly. I LOVE pumpkin pancakes. This is a recipe straight from my cookbook...on page 19.
1 C whole wheat flour
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 C canned pumpkin
2 T butter, melted
1 C buttermilk
1-2 T milk (or to desired consistency)
Optional: 1/4 - 1/2 C chocolate chips (I didn't add these and my kids still raved about them)
Mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, banking powder, pumpkin pie spice). Mix together pumpkin, egg, butter and buttermilk. Mix wet and dry ingredients and add milk to desired consistency. Stir in chocolate chips, if desired. Bake on a heated, greased griddle or skillet. Makes 8-10 pancakes.
