Pumpkin Lovers Unite! Pumpkin Pancakes and Cookies

I love weekends and we couldn't have asked for better fall weather!

Fall means lots of pumpkin flavored treats and that makes me one happy girl!

I bought a can of pure pumpkin this weekend to dive into a few recipes I have been seeing on Pinterest and other blogs. Although I made both pumpkin cookies and pancakes this weekend, it was clear who was the star of the show!

These pumpkin pancakes had the perfect hint of pumpkin. They were moist and melted in your mouth. These pancakes are going to be a staple from here on out in my home and I hope yours too!

The Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes
1 and 1/4 cup pancake mix
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
1 egg
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup milk of your choice
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Turn your skillet on medium and spray with non-stick or melted butter. Scoop your pancake mixture out with a 1/3 cup measuring cup. This will make all your pancakes the same size and cook evenly together! Flip when the little bubbles start popping and serve when cooked fully. Smother in syrup and enjoy being in pumpkin pancake heaven :) This makes 8 pancakes perfectly.

 All my ingredients pre mixed.

 Almost there!

Heaven! Seriously, so good :)

For my pumpkin cookie recipe visit my Facebook page or guest post on Love, Eat, Run this upcoming week!

Yesterday we went to our friends house for dinner. They were recently married and we wanted to catch up with them on their honeymoon!

I made my Mediterranean Orzo salad. I just love this pasta salad with seafood. It's light, packed with flavor and a crowd pleaser.

You can grab the recipe here.

I'm off to enjoy this gorgeous weather! What's your favorite pumpkin flavored recipe?
