  1. Hi! Would you make any changes to this recipe to make them in a sheet pan, like the ones in the Meal Prep cookbook?

  2. Enjoying these right now. Delicious! Subbed Egg Beaters for egg whites and skim milk for 1%. Topped with sugar free maple syrup. Doubled the batch so I can freeze them and pull out as needed. Thanks!

  3. Oops! I left out the oil (because I did not see where to add it), but they still came out awesome!! (and less calories too!) 🙂

  4. Just made these, and topped with pecans simmered in pure maple syrup instead of the pumpkin butter. SO deeeeeelish!!!!!

  5. The wet ingredients include the oil and vanilla, so mix them together with the egg whites, milk, etc. before adding to the dry ingredients.

  6. The question has been asked 3 times and I still don't know. When do we add the oil and vanilla? I want to make these for dinner. They look and sound amazing!
    Thank you – anyone who has made them or original poster – for the help.

  7. I made these this morning. YUM. I subbed Heartsmart Bisquick instead of flour and topped with Trader Joe's pumpkin butter instead of making Gina's and added some sugar free syrup and Tru Whip (which I found out about through this blog too). SOOOO good.

  8. I didn't like these. I served them without pumpkin butter; the pancakes on their own had no pumpkin taste at all.

  9. I replaced the oil with apple sauce and shaved off 2 more points to take the total down to 5 points per serving. My kids loved them! I also added a little more pumpkin as we are in the west and at altitude so our flours dry out.

  10. sooooo good! and oh so filling! I just ate my 2 pancankes and am stuffed! My 4yo ate 4! I love that he is eating something healthy and he likes it! so everybody wins!

    Yes, oil goes inside the batter and for making them you use pam!

  11. I made this for my mom and brother one sunday morning but i put a glob of the pumpkin butter in the middle of the pancake, swirled it around and barely covered it with batter and cooked it normally. Turnout? Beautiful. It was warm soft and moist and fluffy and just delicious. I also mixed in a little pumpkin butter into the batter, with pumpkin spice. Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes! I love them all. 🙂

  12. My batter came out really runny so I added a bit more flour, but these were perfect pancakes and incredibly delicious!

    YUMMMM! My picky 4 year old son loves these pancakes! And I made enough so that I can freeze them and pop 'em in the microwave on busy school/work mornings!

  14. I feel like I am missing something. What is done with the oil, vanilla, and pumpkin? Is it mixed together as the pumpkin butter??? Please clarify.

  15. This by far your best pancake recipe! They were so amazing and fluffy! I am going to make another batch and stick them in the freezer! Thanks for sharing, Gina!

  16. I just made these and they were sooo good! Thank you so much for bringing a taste of fall to my morning! 🙂

  17. These were delish! I swapped 1/2 cup flour for 1/2 cup ground oats to make them a filling breakfast for my family. Thanks for a great website!

  18. I just fed these to three children- 2, 4, and my ever so picky 7 year old niece! They were a huge hit! Kitchen smelled delicious, and all three kids ate 4+ pancakes each!

  19. I love everything pumpkin related! I am wondering if I can make these with a boxed pancake/waffle mix? Thanks!!

  20. Oh, and we mixed all-purpose flour with about two tbsp of wheat germ because we couldn't find whole wheat flour. 🙂

  21. I made these this morning with Mom and they were incredibly good! We ate them with fat free cool whip on top instead of the pumpkin butter (we only used it to make the pancake), with pumpkin pie spice on the cool whip and I ate mine with Aunt Jemima Butter Lite syrup! We have some leftover batter and we're gonna eat them again tomorrow!! 😀

  22. Oh my goodness, these were sooo good! Fixed them tonight for dinner and even the Mr. gobbled them up. I honestly felt like I was cheating a little because they were so good. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I just used a 1/4 tsp of both nutmeg and ground ginger and they still came out wonderful. Thanks for another great one Gina!

  23. I used bob's red mill gluten free flour,the batter for some reason was super wet.Not sure what I did but they came out flat.Tasty But I am not sure what I did wrong.

    I was looking for a reply to Annie's question about the oil and vanilla not being in the instructions but should they be added with the wet ingredients. I did as I wanted to make them now and they were awesome, especially with the pumpkin butter. Thanks for another great recipe but still would like to know if the oil and vanilla belong in this recipe.

    You are officially a fluffy pancake goddess. I made these this morning after loving your original version. I posted the link on my blog 🙂

  26. Hi I have some leftover pumpkin in my fridge that desperately needs to be used. I want to make these tomorrow morning, but I don't have any whole wheat flour. I only have white all purpose flour. Can I substitute it for the same amount of wheat flour the recipe calls for?

  27. I made these last weekend. Once they cooled I put them in the freezer for easy work-week lunches. I finally tried one this morning. I reheated them in our office toasted on the frozen setting. They reheated nicely, but more importantly, they taste amazing!

    I topped mine with maple syrup (the real deal) instead of pumpkin butter. I think they would also be good topped with the cranberry pear sauce posted recently.

    Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Gina!

  28. Gina, I noticed that you have improved your whole wheat pancakes. Would the changes you made to that recipe (such as omitting the oil and using whole eggs) apply to this recipe, as well?

  29. "Combine milk, egg whites and pumpkin butter or canned pumpkin in a bowl and mix until smooth."

    I just wanted to make sure that I should also combine the 2 tsp of oil and vanilla into this step? Or does the oil go the pan?

  30. We LOVE your recipes! They make up the second biggest part of my repertoire (my own recipes I make the most often, but yours are a close second!) and I'm so grateful to your tips and tricks for lightening up my faves and also helping me encourage my family to try new, healthy foods!

    These pumpkin pancakes were AWESOME. I even completely forgot to put in the sugar, but served them with a bit of pure maple syrup and it more than made up for it. Tasty, tasty, tasty!

  31. Just made these for Sunday morning "kick-off" breakfast. Everyone LOVED them. But the best part? No one had a clue they were low-fat!! I will be making this recipe again and again. Thank you!!!

  32. I've made these twice, and I love them. I actually had them for dinner the second time. I love all of your pumpkin recipes, they are just the absolute best.

  33. THESE WERE AMAZING! I made 1/4 this recipe for myself for breakfast this morning (for the egg whites, I used 1.5 tbsp, which is 3/4 of an egg white. I usually have cartons of egg whites in the fridge. For sugar, I just used 1 tsp). I am definitely making pumpkin butter this week, but I just had apple butter on top. I also used my homemade pumpkin puree in the batter.

    I love fall so much, so these were perfect for me. Will definitely be making these again! Maybe even for breakfast for thanksgiving guests.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  34. Hi! I was wondering how many points this is with out the pumpkin butter topping on the new system?

  35. Made this for breakfast, very good and easy to make. I didn't use pumpkin butter, I used low cal syrup.

  36. For the gal looking for a good recipe organizer/ database…I LOVE Shop N' Cook!!! You can copy and paste your recipes into it and then drag and drop what you want to make that week onto a calender and with the click of your mouse it will generate your shopping list(even into grochery store sections). You can also tag your recipes (I tag mine by weight watcher points, meal type, and what's in it for ex. CHicken, or Vegitarian)to make it easy to sort through recipes. I love it!

  37. I love this blog…I need to be spending more time here. There is so much information here! I will be trying these…yum.

    You're so sweet Susan! I'm glad you all enjoyed this!

    Mouse, I have a pumpkin cheesecakes recipe, here's the url

  39. oh god pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin <3 <3

    At the risk of being an overzealous pumpkin dork, I knpw you did a light no bake cheesecake at some point – would you have any suggestions (or perhaps a recipe?) for making a pumpkin cheesecake? It's my _utter favorite_ to the point of frenzy.

  40. These were soooooo good! My 25 yr old son, a health nut, loved them and I'm a lifetime WW fan, of course I loved them! I put some sugar free syrup on top last night for dinner!!! Yummy!!!

    These would go well with your Pumpkin Latte!

    Love your site!

  41. Gina- You are my new BFF!!! I stumbled upon your site and have already cooked several recipes and they have all been fabulous!! I'm also a photography buff and you have taken beautiful shots!! Love, love, love your site!!!

    Let me know. I know I am not alone in this, and it will most likely help others like me keep up dated.

  43. Oddly enough I had pumpkin pancakes for breakfast, but they were much thicker than yours. I think I'll have to try your recipe next time!

    After canning all day it was definitely a "breakfast for dinner" type of night. I made a double batch of these for the family and they were a huge hit! I used some freshly ground white wheat flour and I did sprinkle some mini chocolate chips in my son's. YUM! We ate ours with maple syrup. Thank you for sharing a FANTASTIC recipe.

    Is this seasonal, or what? How did you think to do this? Wonderful! I cannot wait to have my students make this! What fun! Have you told your readers where you are right now?

  48. These are amazing. I cannot wait until our next small group at our house so I can serve these. I know they will be a hit. This time of year is great because I feel as if I can put pumpkin in everything. Just the other day I made a Pumpkin Green Monster smoothie. It was amazing. Have a great day Ashlee

  49. i sorta made this for breakfast this morning.i didnt want to make 4 servings worth because it was just for me. also i didnt have some of the ingridients, so im going to share the lazy way i did it.

    1/2 cup of Heart Smart Bisquik
    1/3 cup skim milk
    1 egg white
    1 Tbsp pumpkin butter
    1 tsp brown sugar
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    1/8 tsp of cinnamon
    1/8 tsp of pumpkin pie spice

    this came out to 6 points, however it made 3 six inch pancakes. it was quick and delicious. thanks for another awesome pumpkin recipe gina!

  50. Hi Gina, I am sure loving the pumpkin butter! I was wondering if you use a recipe software to organize and manage your recipes? If so, can you recommend which product you use?
