pumpkin spice oatmeal pancakes


Ahhhh…..we remember pancake breakfasts on the shores of Lake Michigan. Big fluffy pancakes, filled with the fruit of the season. Raspberry, blueberry, or good ole’ fashioned plain but with walnuts sprinkled on top were on the table many mornings for everyone to gobble up. Served with warm syrup literally harvested from a tree near my grandparents’ home….we can taste them right now. While we love a good ole’ fashioned pancake, we also crave a heartier pancake, so we took a family recipe and added some oatmeal to it. Of course, we needed to make a pumpkin version. So here it is!  We hope you enjoy it. Be sure to serve these with plenty of warmed REAL maple syrup. Sprinkle walnuts on top if that makes you happy!
