My name is Lauren and I’m addicted to pumpkin recipes.

I know I said I’d stop with the pumpkin recipes after Thanksgiving, but there was pumpkin calling to me from the cupboard! And, there’s nothing more comforting than any sort of carb thats warm thats made with cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Its such a great combination. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again- I just can’t get enough pumpkin! Its sort of a problem….but what a great problem to have! I’m embracing it!
Anyways, this is such a great comforting breakfast! It comes together in no time because I use pancake mix that I add in pureed pumpkin, spices and chocolate chips to. It only takes a minute or two more to mix it together than making plain pancakes and these are so much better! And, let me tell you that when you spread on the butter and top these with maple syrup, magic happens. Its just incredible! Maple, pumpkin, chocolate, cinnamon….its amazing! A perfect meal for a lazy saturday or sunday morning!

    AMAZING!!! They were perfect for a night with snow and a sick kid! (Note: The sick 12 month old did not get chocolate chips, so my husband and I had extra for him!)

    Glad I found this recipe! I have left over pumpkin in my fridge and was searching for a new recipe! I will definitely try this on Sunday morning! I don’t have many individual spices, so I prefer this recipe over most other pumpkin recipes because it only calls for 2! Thanks!
