Pumpkin Pie Pancake Recipe

Perfectly perfect pumpkin pie pancakes
are the pumpkin pancakes people pick!
Got Pumpkin? Try out this awesome breakfast idea. I have been working hard to improve my pancake skills since I threw out the old Teflon coated griddle. I have moaned, groaned, griped and complained about my new hard lot in life, post-electric griddle. But practice makes perfect. These little gems almost make it worth all the trouble.

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

1 ripe banana, mashed
1/3 cup pumpkin puree (Any orange squash will do, but I like ones that start with "p.")
3 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted

Mix until combined.

Then add 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup buttermilk, yogurt, or kefir
Mix until combined. Then add another cup flour and another cup of yogurt.
Mix until combined and do it one more time.
Total of 3 cups flour, 3 cups yogurt, buttermilk or kefir.

Spoon 1/4 cup batter on the griddle and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Flip and cook some more.
Top with coconut oil, whipped cream and real maple syrup.

This post is partying with these awesome hops. Check them out for inspiration.


  1. Stopping by from the "Lets Get Real" Hop. My non-blogger blog is yumeating.com My cousins pumpkin patch is almost ready and I can't wait. Lots of canning, freezing, simmering and baking!

    1. Lucky! I meant to plant pumpkins. but my seeds accidentally went through the wash! Oops. Well, there is always next year.

  2. Your title made me smile. Looks like Pumpkin-y goodness is abounding! :) Thanks for linking these up to Let's Get Real!

  3. I need to whip some of these up for my kids. Have you ever tried adapting it to be gluten-free?

    Thanks for sharing your recipe at Fabulously Frugal Thursday.

  4. I do some gluten free cooking, but GF pancakes are not a favorite of mine, and none of us have issues with wheat, so I have never really tried with this. I would imagine if you blended oats, eggs, and cottage cheese, then added pumpkin and spices, you would come up with delicious results! Maybe you have talked me into trying that. Maybe right now in fact!!

  5. I see these being cooked in my kitchen in the near future...it would be tomorrow if I had yogurt to use, but I don't I have everything else.

    1. Could use regular old milk, but they just don't turn out as fluffy!

  6. I cannot resist a recipe that utilizes alliteration. This satisfies both the pumpkin-lover me and the English teacher me. Thanks for sharing.

    1. This might be my favorite comment ever! It makes me pleased as pomegranate punch poured in a pineapple.

  7. Sounds interesting! Nice way to add some extra vitamins to pancakes. :)

  8. Perfect for fall! Thanks for sharing on Tuesday Greens!
