The Perfect Breakfast for a Fall Morning 🍂

Pancakes are a breakfast staple for us on weekends. Naturally, during fall I love making pumpkin pancakes. This weekend, I wanted to make pancakes with no oil or eggs, but full of the pumpkin flavors I love during fall. What I came up with is a recipe that will be on repeat from now on at our home. The smell of pumpkin spice and cinnamon made the kitchen smell amazing, and the light and fluffy pancakes were the perfect start to our weekend. A definite win all around!

These pancakes are easy-to-make and made with natural ingredients. It’s also simple enough to double the recipe if needed. I hope you’ll give this recipe a try. Enjoy! 🥞
