Autumn Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Looking for a great way to add both flavor and moisture to your pancakes?  Try adding pumpkin or apple butter to the batter.  This morning we made lovely pancakes using pumpkin butter and chocolate chips.  You don’t really need the chocolate chips – but the kids wanted them in the pancakes and they ended up being quite a delicious treat!

To make this recipe dairy-free, use dairy-free milk and dairy-free chocolate chips.

This recipe makes about 10-12 3″ pancakes.

1 3/4 cups Gluten-Free Bisquick
2 large eggs
4 Tablespoons vegetable oil (or grape seed oil)
1 1/2 cups milk (cow or non-dairy)
1/2 cup pumpkin butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
spray oil

Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips in a large bowl.  Once combined, stir in the chocolate chips.

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Spray with spray oil.  Use a 1/4 cup measuring spoon and pour pancake batter into the skillet forming 3-4 pancakes per skillet.

Allow to heat through for 1-2 minutes or until bubbles form on top of the pancake.  Flip the pancake with a spatula and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes or until cooked through.  If the pancakes are burning, turn down the heat:)

Serve warm with maple syrup or a smear of pumpkin butter.

    Where do you find pumpkin butter?

      Hi Ramona,

      It is in almost every grocery near in the jam/jelly section. They have really nice pumpkin butters at a lot of cooking stores this time of year too. I think we got ours at Trader Joe’s. There are a lot of lovely “butters” this time of year. Pumpkin, apple, fig. They aren’t really butter (actually most have no dairy) but more a thick preserve/jam that is wonderful on toast or pancakes.

        Thanks Jen,

        I have a Trader Joe’s near me, I’ll try there. I grew up eating apple butter, so I know what it is. It’s kinda like a spicy smooth applesauce.

          Hi Ramona,

          Trader Joe’s has a lot of great GF products. While you are there – my favorite thing (which doesn’t really need to be GF) is the Dorot frozen garlic cubes. Each little cube is a mashed clove of garlic. I LOVE them! They are in the freezer aisle. Ask for them because they aren’t normally near the frozen produce for some reason. Jen

    I am very excited to try this recipe in my foods and nutrition class! I am the only one in this school with cyliac disease so cooking for not only myself, but a class of 24, is difficult. I hope this recipe is as good as it sounds!
