Pumpkin Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes


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.

  • Karen: Can I substitute the all purpose flour with almond flour or something else that is wheat free? Can the buttermilk be substituted with almond milk? October 7, 2015 at 5:21pm Reply

  • Felicia: I’d like to half this recipe… are all the ingredients halfable, or is there something I should change? September 16, 2015 at 5:18pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes it should work just fine to half it. Hope you love them! September 16, 2015 at 9:03pm Reply

  • Charity: And by waddle….I meant waffle :) October 16, 2014 at 7:21am Reply

  • Charity: Would I have to do anything different to use this as waddle batter? October 16, 2014 at 7:20am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I would separate yolks and whites and whip whites to medium-stiff peaks with a few tbsp of the sugar and then fold them in at the end of mixing the batter (before adding chocolate chips) while adding the yolks to the other wet ingredients. You could probably just leave it as is too but I prefer to whip the whites for waffles for added fluff. October 16, 2014 at 11:35pm Reply

  • Renee @ Awesome on $20: Make yourself what you want. Pumpkin haters be damned. And make me these pancakes. They look awesome!These are soooo pinned. October 11, 2014 at 1:29am Reply

  • Elisa: Could I substitute buttermilk to plain Greek yogurt instead? October 3, 2014 at 9:04pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I might not recommend it for this recipe because the batter would be incredibly thick. October 4, 2014 at 10:59am Reply
