Fluffy pumpkin spice pancakes made with real pumpkin, and warm pumpkin spices – these pretty pancakes are perfect for fall and taste amazing with just a little butter and syrup.

Or, pumpkin spice waffles. Or… pumpkin pie stuffed cinnamon rolls?
A friend of mine and I love them – and actually get excited when the local breakfast place begins advertising that pumpkin pancakes are back on the menu. Served with roasted apples…. mmmm…. It also means that (hopefully) some cooler weather is on the way.Love these? (me too!) Tweet it!

This right here is a simple recipe that I keep making, over and over (originally published in 2015) – and now I’m sharing with you. See below for the boys’ verdict…. Enjoy!
Yes! I like to make a double batch, and freeze each one between parchment paper, and sealed in a zip top bag. They keep very well in the freezer for a few months!
To use, just heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds, until heated through.
