Just created these Pumpkin Five Spice Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and had to restrain myself from eating the entire stack! They were so freakin' delish, especially with the added fresh blueberries, a drizzle of organic maple syrup, and sprinkling of powdered sugar.
So, if you haven't figured out by now that I adore pumpkin, here's yet another example! The Chinese Five Spice gives these pancakes a really special flavor, but super subtle with its blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and nutmeg.
Of course, I had to add the chocolate chips into the batter, 'cause who doesn't love chocolate chips in everything? OK, this is not one of my lighter recipes so you might want to take a long walk after eating these babies!
I get my organic puréed pumpkin from Trader Joe's. But now that it's pumpkin season you'll be able to buy this at most grocery stores.
I used my hand mixer on a low setting to combine the pancake batter. You could always do this by hand. The key ingredient here is the Chinese Five Spice which gives it the most amazing, but subtle, flavor!
My flat griddle did the job, plus it's non-stick so very little cooking spray is needed to fry up these pumpkin pancakes!
How gorgeous is this stack of Pumpkin Five Spice Pancakes with Chocolate Chips? They're so easy to make and they're the perfect breakfast or brunch for the family.
Stack it up! These pancakes are so delicious. Top them with fresh blueberries, organic maple syrup, and powdered sugar. YUM!Print

These are amazing and I even left out the chocolate chips. I served mine with blueberry orange sauce. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, that sauce sounds so good! I'm so glad you enjoyed these pancakes!
