Hands up if you loves pancakes for breakfast and are a mad pumpkin lover?! That's two things you have in common with me and it is your lucky day because I am going to share my easy pumpkin pancake recipe with you all.
Pumpkin pancakes are fabulous at any time of the day, I particularly like them mid morning after a workout. I always feel I deserve a sweet treat after running on the cross trainer or doing spin class and these are one of my favorite things to indulge in. Don't worry I make them as healthy as possible and have them with fruit, so that I do not undo the work from my exercise 🙂
How to make Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes
There are two ways you can incorporate pumpkin into your pancake recipe. You can add it into your pancake mix or you can add it as a topping with fruit and syrup. I prefer to add it into my pancake mix.
Pumpkin Pancakes Easy Recipe is very easy and quick. Of course there are lots of other flavors and additives you can use to make them interesting. Lots of people adore the IHOP Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and you can see a copycat recipe in the video below.
What I like to add as my Pumpkin Pancake Topping
My easy Pumpkin pancake recipe tastes amazing on it's own but I like to add some maple syrup and some fruit on top to make them even tastier and healthier. Berries like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries work well. These also look very appealing and if I have guests over they do not stay on the plate too long!
Of course you can add some canned pumpkin on top or some fresh pumpkin puree. It is so easy to cook pumpkin and make puree using homegrown pumpkins! Why not add some puree on top as well as in the mix!
Some people like fresh cream or custard with pancakes especially if they are having them as a snack. Fresh cream and fresh fruit really is the perfect combination for a treat. Taste of Home loves adding cinnamon-apple as a topping. I always associate cinnamon and apple with tart or crumble so I am pretty sure it will work with pancakes. When I was a teen I used to treat myself to apple pancakes and cream every weekend. Basically it was a pancake slider with apples and cream in between; goodness knows how I stayed so skinny, but they were absolutely amazing.
