Pumpkin Pancakes with Chocolate Frosting

What kid doesn’t love frosting? So when I make pumpkin pancakes with chocolate frosting, they get pretty excited and we have very few leftovers. I love that this recipe doesn’t use sugar. Instead it is sweetened with pumpkin, honey, and cacao. I got the recipe from Weelicious (they have some great recipes!).

Pumpkin Pancakes Sandwiches with Chocolate Filling (Makes 18 Pancakes)

For the pancakes:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, canned

For the chocolate filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cocao powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey

1. Sift the first 6 ingredients in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the pancake ingredients.

3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until combined; it’s ok if there are some lumps.

4. Heat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with oil.

5. Drop about 2 tbsp of the pancake mixture onto the griddle and cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden.

6. Set aside and allow to cool.

7. To make the filling: In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the filling until smooth.

8. Place 1 tbsp of the filling between two pancakes to make a sammie.

9. Continue to make the rest of the sammies.

10. Serve.

* Tip: For perfectly round pancakes, use an ice cream scooper to put the pancake batter onto the griddle.
