Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

by jenna on November 3, 2012

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!

Ooh yes, weekends were MADE for pancakes! These sound unbelievable. I’m totally OD-ing on pumpkin this season but it’s just too good to miss out on!

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 love Saturday mornings! Sleeping in, coffee and yummy breakfasts like this! LOVE!

Thank you so much for this recipe. My boyfriend INSISTS that he does not like pancakes, and I keep trying to prove him otherwise. THis recipe might just do it.

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 🙂


Averie @ Averie Cooks November 3, 2012 at 11:21 am

Jenna your pancakes look thick and golden and perfect for this time of year. Glad you are able to enjoy a nice, leisurely, weekend morning. Reading in bed with the covers on and all cozy is pretty much I love the simple things!

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 ?? 😉


Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie November 3, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Haha I sleep in until about 730/8am on Saturday too


Kristen @ notsodomesticated November 3, 2012 at 3:26 pm

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!


Liz @ Tip Top Shape November 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Love this! Lazy Saturday mornings are the best. I love to Snuggle with by Nook. I’m working through Gone Girl right now — such a good book!


Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic November 3, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Those sound like my Sunday mornings 🙂 This looks great!


Kitchen Mommy November 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Yum! These need to make an appearance in our weekend round-up.


Carrie @ The Cook's Palette November 3, 2012 at 11:38 pm

Fabulous in every way. Nothing makes me happier than a big stack of pancakes! Your Saturday morning routine sounds lovely.


Fox @ fox trotting through brooklyn November 4, 2012 at 1:32 am

Emily @ Life on Food November 4, 2012 at 3:16 am

Hooray for Saturday mornings! Coffee, blogs, and pancakes are the best.


Candace November 4, 2012 at 5:06 am

You inspired me to pull some frozen pancakes out of my freezer! Banana walnut, but still! Chocolate chip pumpkin next time.


Brittany November 4, 2012 at 8:02 am

kristen@good 'n good for ya November 5, 2012 at 5:07 pm

I just made pumpkin spice pancakes on Saturday morning! I’m still tweaking the recipe but should be posting it soon. Hadn’t thought about adding chocolate chips though…


Bridget November 7, 2012 at 12:41 pm

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?


Margaret November 7, 2012 at 7:09 pm

These look amazing, Jenna! I can’t wait to try them!! I hope you make another stop in your old stomping grounds, Charleston, before your book tour is over!


The Food Hound November 12, 2012 at 2:41 pm

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!


Hadiah! November 25, 2012 at 10:23 am

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.
