Pumpkin Pancakes

Now that we are officially in Fall, pumpkin recipes seem to be EVERYWHERE! Anything and everything from cakes, to drinks, and even to pasta dishes! One of my family favorite recipes is our pumpkin pancakes. As I was going through various recipes here on the blog, I realized I had never shared the recipe with you all. Crazy, right? I promise I wasn’t just keeping it to myself, I really did think that I had shared it already. Once I realized I hadn’t, my hubby and kids whipped up a batch for a “breakfast dinner” and I got some pictures!

These pancakes are fluffy and have a nice spice flavor too them. Not too sweet, and perfect with a little butter and syrup! Whether enjoyed as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner…..add some sausage or bacon to the plate and call it a meal! Best part of this recipe is the amount it makes. You can make about 20-25 pancakes in one batch! Make extras and freeze them, or save the batter overnight (sealed) and have it again the next day!!
