The best homemade pancakes
Pair these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes with a crisp fall morning, and your day is off to a GREAT start.
I absolutely love everything pumpkin, and when pumpkin and chocolate combine it is one of my favorite flavors.
Growing up, it was very rare that we ever had cooked breakfast. My family loved cold cereal and in a house with 6 kids, I wouldn’t have wanted to make pancakes for that many people every day either!
For whatever reason, I always assumed making homemade pancakes was difficult. I have made my fair share of pancakes using a mix now that I have a family of my own, but nothing compares to the taste of homemade pancakes made from scratch.
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes use my favorite homemade pancake recipe as a base and I’ve added some pure pumpkin pureé and some spices to give them a fun twist for fall.
If fall had a taste, I’m pretty sure it would be these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
When it comes to any recipe using pumpkin, I am a little picky about what pumpkin I use!
My mom always used Libby’s® 100% Pure Pumpkin and it has been a staple during the holiday season for as long as I can remember.
Libby’s® 100% Pure Pumpkin is all natural and is free of preservatives. It’s rich flavor makes the perfect base for all of your pumpkin recipes, whether sweet or savory.
Tips and tricks for making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes
These pancakes are pretty forgiving.
If you want thicker pancakes, you can add less water than the recipe recommends.
If you want to leave out the chocolate chips, you totally can!
If you want a stronger flavor, you can add more of the spices to your pancake batter.
After making these a few times, the recipe below is what I prefer but you can adapt the recipe to what works best for you.
My kids love drizzling maple syrup on top of these homemade pumpkin pancakes, but they are delicious on their own too!
