Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

What's a Saturday morning without homemade pancakes? I remember as a little girl, my dad making pancakes for my sister and me for breakfast on most Saturdays. And I LOVE pumpkin and I LOVE chocolate, so had to try them together. Turns out it was a de-licous combination! Saturday morning pancakes might have to become a tradition in this household... especially if they are pumpkin chocolate pancakes!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Shopping List:

2 C HeartSmart Bisquick

1 Egg

1 3/4 Skim Milk

3/4 C Pumpkin Puree

3 Tbsp Sugar

1 Tsp Cinnamon

Chocolate Chips

1. Mix Bisquick, egg, milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Blend until creamy.
2. Spray griddle with nonstick spray and heat to medium-high heat. Pour batter to make pancakes. Immediately add a few chocolate chips to each pancake. 
3. When the bottom of each pancake starts to brown, flip. Cook until pancake is browned on both sides.
4. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, syrup and butter. Enjoy!

Makes 14 pancakes.

Pumpkin Chocolate-Filled Crepes

By adding an additional 1 C of skim milk to thin the batter, 
you can also many some yummy chocolate-filled crepes. 

1. Add extra milk to batter until it appears very runny. Blend until batter is smooth.
2. Spray griddle with nonstick spray and heat to medium-high heat.
3. Pour batter onto griddle and using your spatula, spread batter out into a circle, making batter thin.
4. When the bottom side of the crepe begins to brown, line chocolate chips down the center of the pancake, fold sides in, and flip. Cook until both sides of the crepe are browned.
5. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar or a drizzle of syrup.

***Note*** In this picture, we drizzled with strawberry syrup. Mmmm!!

I see no problem with serving breakfast for dinner!! As we did last night. 
I have to thank fellow Young Life leaders Jacob Jenkins, 
Kyle Buxton, Logan Imber, and my good friend Kate Nelson for helping 
with this recipe.
