Whole Grain Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

Fall is my favorite time of the year and it just doesn’t feel like fall without pumpkin flavored everything.  Pumpkin scents, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin donuts, so of course pumpkin pie pancakes.  I love pumpkin pie so I figured why not make my usual whole grain pancakes into pumpkin spice pancakes to fill my pumpkin pie cravings all year round. It was a huge hit in my house and I am sure it will be in your house too.

This recipe is delicious as breakfast but would be equally delicious as a dessert.

For this recipe I use plain canned pumpkin, not the can of pumpkin pie filling.  I do this because I like to be able to add the spice I like and also the amount of sugar I want.  I like to add powdered sugar, you could also use Swerve Sweetener for less sugar in the recipe.

Make sure to get the complete pancake mix, the kind that only needs water.  I like to buy whole grain complete pancake mix, to make these a little more heart healthy.

Pumpkin is VERY high in vitamin A, and it is considered a vegetable, so you are eating vegetables and whole grains. 🙂  You can’t go wrong with that.  I like to top these pancakes with whip cream.  The whip cream gives it enough sweetness without syrup, but you can top them with maple syrup if you like.  My kids love syrup and whip cream on theirs, of course.

How to make Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

This recipe is so easy and the perfect chance to get your kids into the kitchen.  Trust me, kids will love helping with this delicious whole grain pancakes recipe.


-1 cup canned pumpkin
-2 T pumpkin pie spice
-1 1/2 cups whole grain complete pancake mix
-1 T powdered sugar
-1 cup water


For these easy pumpkin pancakes just dump everything in the bowl and mix together.  Let sit 2 minutes to thicken.

I like to use my griddle to cook these pancakes because you can cook lots at one time.  If you do not have a griddle, you can use a skillet.

Heat up your griddle on medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Using an ice cream scoop (for even sized pancakes), scoop the pancake batter and place onto hot griddle.  Use the back of the ice cream scoop to flatten the pancake out a little bit.  These pumpkin pie pancakes are a little dense so this helps them cook evenly.

When you see bubbles forming, flip the pancakes.

Top with whip cream and enjoy!

Recipe makes 9-10 pancakes.

When I eat these pancakes, it feels like fall.  And who doesn’t love fall?  I hope you and your family enjoy these pancakes.  Let me know in the comments below.
