Easy Recipes: Pumpkin Pancakes

Sharing is caring!

You know how much I love easy recipes.

Today we have a guest post from my Texas friend Kelley from The Grant Life. I had the pleasure of meeting her in person last month at a blogging conference.

Here she is sharing her simple version of Pumpkin Pancakes.

Fall has officially swept through the great state of Texas and I couldn’t be happier!

I love all things fall, but my absolute favorite part is pumpkins!  Pumpkin crafts, pumpkin drinks, pumpkin decorating and of course pumpkin food.

I’m going to share a simple pumpkin pancake recipe that will bring a little taste of fall to breakfast.   (Or dinner – I love breakfast for dinner!)

Start with your basic pancake recipe:

1 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

1 cup milk

1 egg

Or you can use a premade pancake mix like Bisquick.

Add ¼ cup of pumpkin puree and mix well.

Cook about 2 minutes on each side and allow to cool.

The pancakes turned out moist and delicious.   I added some pumpkin syrup and we had no problem finishing them off.

Kelley is the mastermind in charge of her family.   She loves to spend time crafting, cooking and making her kids laugh. She believes she was destined to be a comedian but has put her stand up dreams on hold to raise her two kids. She blogs about her family at thegrantlife.com and often entertains her readers with her wise cracks.


  1. We use the Banana Bliss Pancakes recipe from “Vive le Vegan!” cookbook by Dreena Burton. Instead of bananas, we’ll add canned pumplin and pumpkin pie spice. With it, my husband and I will have pumpkin beer. A couple of years ago we would do pancakes and Morningstar Farms “sausage” for Sunday supper. (We don’t do real breakfast on Sunday mornings. My husband is a pastor and it’s a near miracle that the kids and I are at church before the bell rings in the morning.)
