Quick and Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes with Walnuts

Every Saturday morning I like to make a special breakfast for my family.  It’s one of those simple little traditions we all look forward to.  Usually it’s waffles or pancakes, sometimes cheesy eggs on toast, or maybe a more protein-packed eggs and bacon if I know we’ll be busy. Whatever it is, it’s almost always on the fine china.

Even though it’s getting close to Christmas, I’m still all about pumpkin-everything.  These quick and easy pumpkin spice pancakes are an easy win that even your picky eaters will eat.  And if Dominic will eat it, then I’m sure almost any child will.  Unless your child’s sensory issues are worse than my child’s. . . then carry on the good fight.

For the rest of us, adding pumpkin puree and spices to pancake mix is an easy way to bump up the nutrition of your breakfast, without feeling like you’re eating something healthy.

I like to add walnuts to mine, but feel free to skip them.  The pancakes will taste just as good.

These pumpkin spice pancakes come together FAST.  Combine 1 1/2 cups pancake mix, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1 cup milk or water, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp allspice, and a 1/4 tsp ginger.  If you like a little extra crunch, add 1/2 cup walnut pieces.

However, you can easily customize this recipe to your tastes.  Batter too runny?  Add more pancake mix.  Too thick?  Add more milk.  Don’t like walnuts?  Skip them.

I don’t recommend adding much more pumpkin puree than the recipe calls for, because it will change the texture too much and your pancakes won’t be fluffy.

Whatever you do, I imagine these to be a nice power breakfast before American Thanksgiving or Black Friday shopping.
