Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Pancakes

by Heather

Fall may be well over, much to my dismay, but that doesn’t mean the fall flavors have to end.

Though fall-inspired, this breakfast is great any time of year- especially if you raided the stores of all their pumpkin in October like I did.

Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Chip Pancakes


1/2 cup oats

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

2 Tbsp Greek yogurt (optional)

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/8 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup almond milk

1/8 tsp cinnamon

Generous pinch of each: ginger, clove, nutmeg, allspice


Chocolate chips

Mix everything together. You may need to add a little extra liquid- either almond milk or water, but add slowly- batter should remain pretty thick. Let sit for a few minutes.


Stir in a handful each of chopped pecans and chocolate chips.


Spread onto pan over medium heat. Use the back of a spoon to spread the thick batter into a 3-4 inch pancake. Cook a few minutes on each side- may take a little longer than traditional pancakes due to thickness.


Serve hot!


I enjoy mine plain, but the husband tops his with maple syrup and declares them “probably the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten.”

He’s not fooling anyone- he was just happy to be served pancakes.

But he was right…they were pretty darn good.

Chocolate chip and banana are my favorite pancake mix-ins.

I love the idea of combining pumpkin and chocolate chips – one of my favorite combos…

Pancakes are happiness!

I don’t generally drink milk, so I don’t make pancakes often – can the milk be replaced with water in most recipes?

You can use water in most recipes, but it probably won’t turn out as rich. No milk at all?? Almond, hemp, oat milk?? You could also try juice to keep it from tasting watered down, depending on what you’re making.

Those pancakes look delicious! I’m usually an oatmeal for breakfast girl, but I might have to add these to the rotation.

These look wonderful! I’ve recently discovered peanut flour as an awesome pancake mix in.


Heather January 5, 2011 at 9:51 am

Ooo peanut flour…that sounds delicious!!


Lisa @ Thrive Style January 5, 2011 at 3:09 pm

What a great combo! Those are a few of my fave things… I guess you already covered my favorite pancake mix-ins, but I do like bananas and blueberries too!

Looked delicious! However when I made these for me and my little girl they came out really bland. Too bad, because it looked like such a promising recipe :(
