If you are anything like me, then you still might have some pumpkin lurking around that needs to be used up. I wasn't even going to post this recipe because it's just a slight variation on my Life Changing Pancakes. However, with so many people asking if they could sub the sweet potatoes with pumpkin, I decided to try it myself and go ahead and post the recipe to my recipe index for all you lovely people. AMAZING.
So, to answer your question, yes, subbing the pumpkin works amazing. A couple of my readers already did it with success, but I changed the recipe some and some measurements to accomodate the pumpkin and keep it at 8 ingredients, while still producing a wonderfully, fluffy pancake. AND this one is coconut-free!
I honestly don't know which one I like better....although I love how coffee enriches everything and the rich spices, so I'm loving these right now!
If you don't like the taste of coffee, no worries, my hubby doesn't like coffee and didn't even realize their was coffee in them. In fact, the coffee just makes the spices and flavor richer and more robust, without tasting like a cup of coffee. We all loved them so much.
I also tried it with chocolate chips (like the original version) and it was of course, the bomb! Honestly, these were delicious without any chocolate chips and super moist, so only add them if you want them extra sweet! I increased the syrup to make up for adding coffee, with can be bitter and for using pumpkin instead of sweet potato.
These have an amazing, deep robust flavor from the coffee and all the amazing pumpkin spices. They have a perfectly, crispy crust and are super soft and fluffy on the inside, just like a pancake should be. No mushy or half raw pancakes here, like nearly every other vegan/gluten-free pancake I've ever tried!
These pumpkin spice pancakes are just 8 ingredients (+ salt), vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and are also grain-free and coconut-free.
If you want the ultimate Pumpkin Spice Latte experience, then you gotta add some of my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Sauce on top of these babies. Talk about pumpkin heaven!
Gah....don't you just want to shove your face....I mean, fork in that?
