Variations to Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe
Variation is the key to life. So most of my favorite recipes are ones that are easy to change up to fit our needs or to give us something new. If you are like me and want to be able to change up your breakfast, try some of these ideas:
Chocolate Chips – This is a go-to, of course. Everyone knows chocolate chips and pancakes always go together.
Chocolate or Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes – Add either 2 tablespoons cocoa powder or 1 tablespoon of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) to the batter. Reduce water by 1 tablespoon and replace with milk for chocolaty pancakes or use water and replace with milk for peanut butter protein pancakes.
Maple syrup – This one is a must for me. I love the taste of maple syrup on my pancakes. Add 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup to the batter and reduce water by 1 tablespoon.
Oatmeal raisin – Oats and raisins go great together and turn these pancakes into a delicious breakfast. Add 1/2 cup oats and 3 tablespoons raisins to the batter and reduce water by 1 tablespoon.
Blueberry – Somehow blueberries just go with pumpkin! Put the two together in these fluffy pancakes for an amazing combination. Add 1 cup of blueberries to the batter and reduce water by 2 tablespoons.
Apple cinnamon – Apples and cinnamon make a delicious pair and it goes fantastic with pumpkin. Add 1 cup diced apple and 2 teaspoons cinnamon to the batter and reduce water by 1 tablespoon.
Banana – Who doesn't love banana? Add 1 cup mashed bananas to the batter and reduce water by 2 tablespoons. Also, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Can batter be made in advance?
No. It is best to mix the batter just before cooking to prevent the ingredients from settling. This will give the fluffiest, best-tasting pancakes.
Can I make this recipe gluten-free?
Yes. To make these pancakes gluten-free, replace the regular flour with a gluten-free baking mix such as King Arthur's Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour.
Can I use pancake mix instead of flour?
You can substitute pancake mix and leave out the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. The flavor is slightly different but still good!
When mixing batter do I need to mix everything thoroughly?
You want to make sure the batter is mixed together but do not overmix. You might find that you have some lumps. This is ok.
Can I use pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree?
No, do not substitute pumpkin pie filling for puree. The recipe calls for 100% pure pumpkin. Pumpkin pie filling is not the same as pumpkin puree. While they are both made with pumpkin, the puree is pure pumpkin while the pie filling has additional ingredients to make it pumpkin pie ready.
How to keep pancakes warm?
Want to know how to keep your pancakes warm and ready to serve? Don't worry, it's easy! These healthy pumpkin pancakes can be made in advance and kept warm in the oven. Just set your oven to its lowest setting, place the pancakes on an oven-safe plate or platter, and pop them in the oven until you're ready to serve. This simple trick will keep your pancakes fresh and delicious for whenever you're ready to indulge!
How long do pumpkin pancakes last?
If you find that you happen to have leftover pumpkin pancakes or if you are like me and like to cook once but eat for a few days, these pumpkin pancakes can be saved. The pancakes can be safely eaten for up to 4 days.
How do I store leftover pumpkin pancakes?
If you find yourself with leftover pumpkin pancakes and want to save them for later, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, let the pancakes cool completely before storing them. This will prevent condensation from building up in the container and making the pancakes soggy. Once cooled, place the pancakes in an airtight container or freezer bag and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
How to Freeze Leftover Pancakes
To freeze leftover pancakes, place a piece of wax paper between each pancake to prevent them from sticking together. You can also freeze them on a sheet first and then wait for them to freeze. Then you can move the pancakes to a freezer bag or place the pancakes in an airtight container and freeze up to 2 months. When you are ready to eat your frozen pancakes, simply pop them into the microwave or toaster oven for a quick breakfast.
