Pumpkin Pancakes for Dinner!

The other day I was thumbing thru my Mens Health Magazine and I found a recipe for pumping pancakes. I decided to make them for dinner tonight and they were delicious and very filling!  

Try them and let me know what you think!

Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

2 cups of your favorite dry pancake mix
3 tbsp dark-brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin-pie spice
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp vegetable oil, plus more for the griddle
pure maple syrup


In a large bowl, combine the pancake mix, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. In another large bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, vanilla extract, and oil. Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or large frying pan on medium high. Pour the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form in the batter and the edges begin to brown. Then flip them and cook until the other sides are lightly browned.

3. Serve the pancakes drizzled with maple syrup.

I have a lot of leftover sweet potato cubes from when my son was beginning to eat solids. We thaw those and add them to pancake mix. We get a treat (pancakes) and some extra veggies for the day.

Are you going to make these for me for breakfast when I come over to tutor you in English? Haha. They look fantastic.

Love the recipe! I've been anxious to make pumpkin pancakes.

Also, just a suggestion to take or leave, my almost-3-yr-old son eats a frozen whole wheat waffle for breakfast everyday and instead of brand name high fructose corn syrup containing syrups, I use Agave Nectar. I love it! It's jut as sweet and less chemically.
