Baked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes
I have a weakness for pumpkin. It may be stronger than chocolate. When pumpkin season comes around I roast as much pumpkin as I can and freeze it for something pumpkin throughout the year.
If you love pumpkin as much as I do you will love this recipe, and it will love you back by making this the easiest pancake recipe. No standing by the stove flipping pancakes while the kids are getting into who-knows-what. These sweet, moist, and full-of-pumpkin spice flavor are BAKED! An accidental recipe stemmed from mere frustration of feeling like the short-order cook. Serve it with maple syrup, powdered sugar, chocolate shavings, or all of the above. You will certainly be put into the best rock star category amongst the gang for this one. Enjoy!
