Simple Pumpkin Pancakes

Simple Pumpkin Pancakes are perfectly pumpkin and so incredibly fluffy.  They get their simplicity from dressing up your standard box pancake mix!


Oh friends, I am excited about this one.  Does anyone else get excited about food the way I do?

Perfectly pumpkin, fall-ish, fluffy and soft pumpkin pancakes.

These are simple enough for anyone to make and use things you probably already have sitting around the cupboard including store bought pancake mix.


Serve them plain!  They are good enough to eat by themselves – really!  Simple Pumpkin Pancakes are fabulous!


Or with whipped cream.


Or with syrup AND whipped cream.  Because really sometimes you have to splurge.  I believe a healthy lifestyle has to have balance.


And speaking of  healthy, simply adding the pumpkin pumps up these pancakes nutritional value.  Pumpkin is full of anti-oxidants and has high levels of vitamin-A.

Not that you needed an excuse.

You see, sometimes really good things can actually be just a little bit good for you.


I hope you enjoy these simple pumpkin pancakes!

    Oh my gosh! Is there anything better than pumpkin pancakes? Pretty sure the answer is no. Eating pumpkin pancakes on a cool fall morning must be a small glimpse of what heaven will be like : )

    These sound wonderful! I have pumpkin coconut milk that I might substitute for water.
