Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

I wanted to find something yummy to make with the cinnamon chips I picked up at the store. If you haven't seen them, check out your local grocery store. They usually only come out in the fall and they are so yummy! They are in the chocolate chips area. I also had been wanting to try out pumpkin pancakes and this seemed the perfect combination. Perfect for a fall morning breakfast!

Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger *
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (use whole or evaporated milk for best results)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 cup (more or less) cinnamon chips

  1. Mix together the milk, pumpkin, eggs, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Batter will be thick. Use the back of a spoon to spread out batter just a little on the griddle. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

* You can substitute pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg, cloves, and ginger if you prefer.

My kids wanted to add Halloween sprinkles for the finishing touch. I prefer mine sprinkless, but the sprinkles are adorable!

I've been wanting to try pumpkin pancakes too. With the cinnamon chips would be amazing. I'll have to scope the store for some.
