Even though I’ve been a little obsessed with pumpkin, I have good reason to be! They are great for breakfasts and desserts, so it’s hard not to incorporate them this time of year! With these pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes, the pumpkin flavor is subtle but you know it’s there. And of course chocolate chips make every pancake better.

My second favorite month of the year is coming to an end, but good news is November is my favorite month of the year so I have that to look forward to. However getting back to October, when you think food in October you think pumpkin am I right? I mentioned in my baked pumpkin donuts recipe, that the popularity of pumpkin seems to be at an all-time high! Shoot, these pancakes are the fourth pumpkin themed recipe I’ve shared in 6 weeks so I guess I’m part of the problem!

I’ve mentioned in the past that in our family, Lauren is all about pancakes, while I am all about waffles. So we definitely pick our battles on which we make over the weekend. However I will admit, it’s pretty hard to say no to these pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes. I guess next I’ll have to tackle a pumpkin waffle to see if it can be beat.

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined - it's ok if there are lumps. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside for 10 minutes.

  3. Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium heat. Coat generously with butter. Once hot, drop about 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle. Cook for about 1 minute or bubbles start to surface.

  6. Alright. Made these with maybe a *little* creative liberty on the amount of chocolate chips. And holy cow, these were great. Not only did this make a ton of pancakes, but they were super easy, tons of flavor, and (BONUS) fantastic just being reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds. I usually cover my pancakes in syrup and butter, but I straight up just reheated these and ate them with my hands.

    10/10 will make again.
