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!

Note: The texture of these pancakes is different compared to traditional pancake batters because of the pumpkin puree. 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?
