Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes.

Pumpkin pancakes taken to a whole new level

And Iโ€™m back again with another pumpkin recipe. Pretty predictable ๐Ÿ™‚

As I mentioned in my last post, I would eat any pumpkin dessert. That same rule also applies to any pumpkin breakfast. Pumpkin pancakes, waffles, French toast โ€“ you name it. And add healthy to any of those breakfasts, and Iโ€™m totally on board. These Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes are the epitome of just that.

Who thought that any variation on chocolate chip pancakes could be healthy?! Well, although these are not the healthiest breakfast option, they are certainly a healthier option than youโ€™re traditional chocolate chip pancakes. Pumpkin actually has immense health benefits (are loaded with fiber and lower blood pressure), and the whole wheat flour along with the maple syrup as a natural sweetener contribute to the โ€œhealthyโ€ label I put on these pancakes.

You really canโ€™t let autumn pass without trying these pancakes ๐Ÿ™‚
