It can be difficult to serve up something new, healthy, or even hot during a rushed morning. These pumpkin pancakes are quick and easy. You'll be squeezing in a vegetable serving and your kids will love them!
I originally found a recipe on Allrecipes for pumpkin pancakes from scratch. When I read through the reviews, someone had posted a simpler recipe using a prepared pancake mix like Aunt Jemina.
2 1/2 Cup Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix
3 TBS brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 3/4 cup milk
2 TBS vegetable oil
2 TBS vinegar
1 cup pumpkin puree
**I had to lower the cooking temperature. At first, the pancakes seemed to darken real fast but stay raw in the middle.
- In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients just enough to combine.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
This recipe was enough to feed my family of 4 two days in a row! I just reheated the pancakes the next morning. I also thought I might try adding some raisins or pecans next time. My little guys ate them as is without syrup. If you'd like the full recipe from scratch, click here.
