Pumpkin Pancakes

Fluffy pumpkin pancakes packed with pureed pumpkin, fall spices and topped with walnuts and honey butter. Ok, so I thought I found the perfect pancake with the sweet potato pancakes until I tried these amazing pumpkin pancakes! I had a half used can of pumpkin lying around yesterday morning and decided to make these scrumptious pumpkin pancakes. They cook up so amazingly fluffy! They had to be at least an inch thick! The perfect kind of pancake if you ask me! There is nothing better on a cool and rainy fall morning than a stack of warm and fluffy pancakes! Now go ahead and pass me the syrup! :)

    Those pancakes look like their 2 inches thick! I love all the spices that go into them. It’s like pumpkin pie in a pancake!
    I added pumpkin puree and spices to my hot cereal this morning. I think this means we really all want to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast!

    I can’t believe how fluffy those pancakes are. I’ve been looking for a recipe that will rise up high and I think this is it.

    I tried pumpkin pancakes this fall, and my hubby and I thought they were amazing too! Such a fun twist on the usual Sunday morning treat.

    Awesome pancakes! I left out the walnuts, used brown sugar and cut back on the ginger to suit our tastes. My two year old ate them up and she’s not normally big on pancakes. Thanks for the great recipe.

    I have regular canned pumpkin— can I use that instead of puree? Thank You

      Just as long as it is not pumpkin pie filling you will be fine. Canned pumpkin pie filling would makes these pancakes too sweet. I hope you enjoy them! :)
