Pumpkin Pancakes

Fluffy pumpkin pancakes packed with pureed pumpkin, fall spices and topped with walnuts and honey butter. Ok, so I thought I found the perfect pancake with the sweet potato pancakes until I tried these amazing pumpkin pancakes! I had a half used can of pumpkin lying around yesterday morning and decided to make these scrumptious pumpkin pancakes. They cook up so amazingly fluffy! They had to be at least an inch thick! The perfect kind of pancake if you ask me! There is nothing better on a cool and rainy fall morning than a stack of warm and fluffy pancakes! Now go ahead and pass me the syrup! 🙂

    Those pancakes look like their 2 inches thick! I love all the spices that go into them. It’s like pumpkin pie in a pancake!
    I added pumpkin puree and spices to my hot cereal this morning. I think this means we really all want to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast!
