Pumpkin Pancakes

These fluffy pancakes have been a fall favorite in our house for over a decade. They have a hint of sweetness from the maple syrup and some added nutrition from canned pumpkin puree and ground flax seed. Our favorite way to enjoy them is with a little salted butter that is melted and whisked with warm maple syrup and drizzled over top - delicious!

Dry ingredients

  • cup flour
  • 3 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • a pinch of nutmeg

Wet ingredients

  • cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Whisk wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Fold wet mixture into dry mixture.

  2. Heat a nonstick griddle or pan over medium heat. Melt some butter or coconut oil on the heated pan and pour about ¼ cup batter for each pancake. I also find using an ice cream scoop to be super easy for this job. Cook pancakes a few minutes on each side and enjoy with salted butter and warm maple syrup. They are also quite good plain!
