Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

These pancakes are the perfect motivation to jump out of bed for breakfast on a snappy fall morning!

Time: 30 min.


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 ½ cups of milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbsp. brown sugar (packed)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Maple syrup to taste


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the milk, egg, pumpkin puree, vanilla, and oil.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  3. Stir dry ingredients (what’s in the second bowl) into the pumpkin mixture (the first bowl) until just combined.
  4. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place it on the stove on medium heat. Let it heat up for about 4 minutes.
  5. Scoop ¼ cup of pancake batter into the skillet. Depending on the size of the skillet, you can cook one, two, three or more pancakes at a time.
  6. When the pancake top begins to bubble, flip the pancake over with a spatula and brown on opposite side. It will take less time to cook on this side.
  7. Serve with warm maple syrup.
