Easy Pumpkin Pancakes

How to Make Pumpkin Pancakes

With Thanksgiving behind us, you may have a cup or two of pumpkin puree left over in the fridge and overnight guests still in town.   Impress your guests and your family by using this recipe to make Easy Pumpkin Pancakes.  One of my all time favorites.

All you need is a few extra minutes and a cup of pumpkin puree to make pumpkin pancakes from scratch.  If you prefer to make them semi-homemade, add between 3/4 cup to a full cup of pumpkin puree, tablespoon of sugar, a teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to your pre-made pancake mix, and blend it all together.

Pair your Pumpkin Pancakes with maple flavored bacon or leftover ham (or both!) and enjoy!

Added bonus, a half cup of pumpkin puree packs 300% of your daily serving of vitamin A!! WOW!

    Must. Try. This. I have misjudged pumpkin terribly. I need to give pumpkins another chance! Don’t get me wrong– I love calabaza in dishes like frijoles, but usually not in “sweet” dishes. Now I’m getting cravings!!!
