The Perfect Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes

I have been playing around with this pumpkin pancake recipe for a little while, going through multiple versions, because I absolutely love pumpkin! AND I don’t just love pumpkin in the fall. I love pumpkin all year long and find myself wanting to make these whenever the house is a little cooler in the morning than expected. I am not sure exactly why, but the spices just taste extra delicious when it is cooler out, like a rainy day, a cool spring morning, or a late fall night! So I am so happy that I have finally found the perfect combination for these Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes! They have definitely made it to my list of favorite brunch recipes to make on Sundays.

If you aren’t a nut person, the recipe will be just as good without them! My husband can be weird about nuts, so I have made the recipe both ways and love it both ways. He doesn’t mind the nuts though when I make sure to grind them up really small. As long as he doesn’t really notice them, he enjoys the rich nutty flavor they add to the pumpkin!

The Perfect Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes

  1. Combine and mix all of the dry ingredients, including the pecans.
  2. In a different bowl, combine the wet ingredients.
  3. Then, fold the wet pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients.

It will be a bit thicker and spongier. While they will still taste delicious, I just didn’t want you to worry about whether you made the batter correctly.

Are you a pumpkin fan? Do you eat it all year long or just in the fall?
