Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

Pancakes are always a welcomed, weekend favorite. Fast and easy to prepare, any ingredient can be added to the batter to make many different pancake variations. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes are super delicious.The key ingredient when making pumpkin pancakes is of course, the pumpkin. I like to use canned pumpkin because it’s so convenient. This recipe only calls for 6 tablespoons of canned pumpkin, leaving you enough  left-over pumpkin to make pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes wouldn’t be the same without the addition of pumpkin pie spice. If you use a lot of pumpkin pie spice, especially during the months of September, October and November you might want to consider making your own Pumpkin Pie Spice. Pumpkin pie spice is a combination or blend of warm spices that are most often associated with these “Autumn” months.

Can Be Added To Many

Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice are the most common spices found in pumpkin pie spice blend. Since you most likely already have these spices on hand, make your own pumpkin pie spice and save yourself a few dollars this holiday baking season. Pumpkin pie spice can be sprinkled on top of lattes, used in pumpkin recipes and added to maple syrup to give these pancakes even more pumpkin spice flavor.

Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes are super delicious and are great blend of flavors. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes are made with Libby’s canned pumpkin, which makes them delicious. Mini chocolate chips work the best in this recipe but you can substitute cinnamon chips or pecans if you’d like. Serve with maple syrup or flavored butter or both.
