Recipe: Pumpkin Pancakes

Looking for something slightly different for breakfast?  Try these tasty pancakes! The pumpkin not only gives a lovely (although not overpowering) “spice cake” type flavor, but it also amps up the vitamins and minerals!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes


  • 1/2 C Flour
  • 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C milk
  • 1/2 C canned pumpkin (not pie!)
  • 2 TBS oil


  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl & whisk to combine
  • In another bowl, mix eggs, milk, pumpkin & oil.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Drop by 1/4 C onto a medium hot greased griddle. Cook slowly & flip when bubbles appear.
  • Note: These are very thick moist pancakes. You may want to thin with more milk. Cook on a lower than normal setting or the outside will get too brown before the inside is done.
  • These are a bit more dense & moist than regular pancakes.

    My Granmother made these all the time. It was really fun in the fall because we would scrape the inside from our real pumpkins and make these! Thanks for reminding me of the good ole days!

      Aww, that’s such a fun story! I just love family stories-I think it’s what keeps us all connected. . . corny as that sounds.

    Making these for the 2nd time this morning! Love these! My toddler loves them and it’s one recipe that my 4 year old can’t figure out that I added something healthy (tiny pieces of broccoli in pizza sauce – no way:).

      I’m so glad you like them. I’m glad that they fool the kiddo-it’s nice to get a few extra vitamins and some fiber into those little people :)

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I cooked some pumpkin puree this weekend and made this for my kids before school this morning. I added some pumpkin pie spice:) delicious and so moist!

      Glad you (and the kiddos-how cool to have a mom who make pancakes on a school day!) enjoyed it! I love things with pumpkin in them-as far as I’m concerned the fact that you are adding fiber and vitamins is just a benefit!
