Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancake Bites
Now that fall has officially arrived, I find it necessary to make all things pumpkin. I have been sharing so many great pumpkin recipes already and fall is just getting underway. My kids really like my CopyCat IHOP Pancakes. They are perfect for the cold months when we are craving pumpkin. Since one of their favorite breakfasts happens to be my Blueberry Pancake Bites, I figured it was time to make a pumpkin breakfast that was great for them to eat on the way to school.
Mornings can be hectic on school days so I have to have something quick and easy for the kids to grab when they are on the way out the door. They like convenient breakfasts because they are always running late (just like mom, ha ha). They really enjoy donuts like my Baked Pumpkin Donuts because they are so easy to eat on the ride.
These little pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes are perfect for them to enjoy on the way to school. I usually have small throw away containers of syrup if they are needing to dunk. But these pumpkin pancakes do not even need dunking as the flavors are amazing with or without maple syrup.
Pancakes can take quite a bit of time to make for my big family. Sometimes it feels as though I am at the stovetop flipping pancakes and tossing them in the oven for way too long. Pancake bites make it so much easier. I can whip up a batch of batter and then toss the pan in the oven and they are ready in no time at all.

I used my donut hole pan to make our pancakes nice and round. If you are looking for a donut pan you can hop on over to Amazon and snag this Wilton Doughnut Hole Pan. You could also use a cake pop pan or cake pop maker too!
