Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancake Recipe



There is something so comforting about a pumpkin treat spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Pumpkin pancakes are the perfect way to treat yourself on a cold fall or winter morning. The addition of chocolate chips makes them even more delicious. I love pancakes for either breakfast or dinner. I did serve these with flavored butters and syrup. However, I found they were good enough to eat without syrup. Why go out to breakfast? Pancakes are so easy to make for your whole family.

Pumpkin has a lot of nutritional value. Pumpkin is high in protein while being low in calories. It is high in fiber, helping you feel full longer. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron.
