Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Saturday morning to me means:

…sleeping in until {gasp} 8am

…drinking coffee while leisurely checking my favorite blogs on my laptop

…reading my bible underneath the covers with Dexter curled up next to me

…throwing a load of dirty clothes in the wash because I’ve procrastinated doing it all week

…pulling some bacon out of the freezer and gathering ingredients to make fluffy pancakes, dripping with maple syrup.

Saturday mornings are special. I hope in the future when I have kids of my own, I can keep up the pancake and bacon tradition. My new favorite pancakes? These thick chocolate chip pumpkin spice ones. Oh my, are they ever decadent and delicious.

They make me happy. And bonus? They freeze + reheat beautifully. Just wrap leftover pancakes individually in tin foil and stick ’em in the freezer for busy weekday mornings. When you’re ready to eat, just unwrap, pop in the toaster, and in a matter of minutes you can enjoy fresh pumpkin pancakes bursting with gooey chocolate chips.

Grab the recipe over at PBS Food. Happy Saturday, friends!

    I made pumpkin pnacakes the morning after Halloween and it was the same kind of morning. A lot of my friends had work cancelled because of the hurricane, so we all slept in and ate pumpkin pancakes!

    I think we need to make pumpkin live on as a year round flavor. We can start by having this pancakes with bacon every saturday! What if you put bacon in the pancakes? That could be delicious too. yum 🙂

    I recently started a site and I am trying to become a better cook through testing out different recipes across the web (before developing my own) but I always end up bookmarking your recipes! Can you ever make something that I DON’T want to try ?? 😉

    I love relaxing Saturday mornings. I haven’t had a good ‘stay in my pj’s and make pancakes and bacon’ kind of Saturday morning in entirely too long! I think that needs to change next weekend!

    Finally, a pumpkin dish that isn’t loaded with sugar and butter! I recently bought a waffle iron, and was wondering if this batter would work for waffles? Should I add more baking powder to make sure they’re fluffy?

    YUM! I love pumpkin chocolate chip ANYTHING, and the BH is always trying to get me to make chocolate chip waffles. I am totally not opposed… I just don’t think they go all that well with maple syrup. BUT… add pumpkin and it’s a horse of a different color! DELISH! Can’t wait to try!

    Good day! I could not wait to try this recipe. I did not have to purchase anything because I had all of the ingredients for this Sunday morning surprise. Alas, it did not turn out well. They looked as beautiful as the photo. However, the insides were moist, like pudding. And, I was not sure how to fix this dilemma. Please advise.
