Pumpkin Friday: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Will I ever get sick of pumpkin?  I guess I should ask, will Braden ever get sick of pumpkin?
No, not possible.  Pumpkin is delicious and we both look forward to our pumpkin treat each week.


INGREDIENTS:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons light or dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 ground cloves
1/8 ground ginger
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tablespoons of butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
1.      In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.
2.      In a small bowl pour in the milk. Add the egg and lightly beat.
3.      Mix in the pumpkin puree until completely blended. Pour in the slightly cooled melted butter and mix some more.
4.      Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. The batter should have some small to medium lumps.
5.      Heat up your griddle or cast iron skillet over medium low-heat and brush with 1 tablespoon of butter. Pour some batter on the warm skillet. Top each pancake with desired amount of chocolate chips.  Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and then flip. Cook on opposite side for about 40 seconds, or until golden brown.  Top it off with some maple syrup.

Sometimes I eat breakfast in bed while I read a book.

Enjoy! Thanks for reading!
