After reading all of the yummy breakfast recipes I decided to do pancakes for dinner Saturday. Normally, my kids will not eat pancakes. Jeff and I have found a recipe for oatmeal pancakes that we love. So when I saw the pumpkin pancakes the receipe looked similar to the brown sugar pancake receipe we usually used, I knew I had to try it. I doubled the receipe so that we'd have enough to stick in the freezer. They were excellent!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes(adapted from Kristen's Oat Pancakes)
Makes about 9-12 small pancakes
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar (I did half brown and half white)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (I used half this amount)
3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in a second bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Cook on medium heat until bubbles pop and the surface looks dry. Flip and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with syrup and enjoy!
Since my kids really don't like pancakes I decided to do chocolate chip for them. They devoured these, so much so that I have none left to reheat for them. They are already asking for me to make again.
Chocolate Chip Pancakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, milk and oil; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Keep warm.
