Pumpkin Week! Day Four – Pumpkin Apple Pancakes

Pumpkin Apple Pancakes

It is day four of Pumpkin Week and still no pumpkin pie! Today I am focusing on breakfast. Pumpkin makes such a great addition to pancakes and waffles. I was craving that homey feel of a delicious pancake breakfast and that is exactly what I got. Mixing the pumpkin with some apple juice and apple sauce gives the pancakes a real autumn feel as well. Add some real maple syrup and you have the perfect weekend breakfast. It’s Thursday so pick up the ingredients and prepare yourself for a big breakfast this weekend!
