Somebody take the pumpkin from me. If you are a pumpkin hater, then I apologize, sort of :). I’ve been posting far too many pumpkin recipes for a September. They just so happen to be my most popular recipes lately though (that and all the soups I have posted), so give the people what they love I guess. Plus I seriously love pumpkin everything. These pancakes are definitely no exception!
Remember these Pumpkin Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies I posted about a month ago? Well those delicious cookies have quickly become one of my most popular recipes and they are my new favorite fall cookie. I love that they taste just like a traditional pumpkin chocolate chip cookie but they have a little more texture thanks to the oats. Since I’ve already made those cookies three times since sharing them I decided to switch things up a little and make them in pancake form. Breakfast just got a whole lot more exciting! Cookie turned pancake, I’m in for sure! You’ll love these soft and fluffy pancakes. I mean how could you not? They are pumpkin flavored, cookie inspired and they’re loaded with chocolate chips. Plus it’s nice for a change to a have a little texture in those morning pancakes, thanks to the oats.
