Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
Very Good 4.4/5
(125 ratings)

These moist pancakes are lightly spiced for the palate of my young child. If you like a bit more pizzazz, you can increase the spices or add others. Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice both work nicely here.

It's the perfect time of year for this recipe!
