Pumpkin Chai Latte Mini Pancakes

These pancakes are made with pumpkin, chai latte, chocolate chips, and drizzled with caramel.  A great way to welcome autumn with a bang.  Who’s hungry?

My children wanted pancakes for breakfast again.  I didn’t mind because it was my excuse to create a new flavor.  Fall is just around the corner.  My youngest can’t have apples, and I have some left over pumpkin puree from making the Pumpkin Bundt cake yesterday, which by the way, will give you reason to get excited about fall and I will be posting it next.  A perfect new recipe to add to your fall recipe collection.

The same way with these pancakes.  They’re fluffy and moist and packed with beta-carotene.  Plus, chocolates and caramel?  Oh, boy!

My son, Justin, said “it’s like having an early treat” with a big smile.  It made my day! 🙂

Prepare the ingredients.

*Note:  The batter sticks to the skillet a little bit, so you can use a non-stick skillet if you prefer.

  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk

Heat skillet or electric griddle over low heat and lightly coat with oil when hot.  Scoop about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet.   Add the chocolate chips or your favorite toppings.  My oldest son, Justin, preferred chocolate chips.

And my youngest preferred sprinkles and chocolates.
