Hello one-bowl mini pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes! If you want to make me happy, give me all the pumpkin pancakes on a sunny fall weekend. You know what would be ultimate that I haven’t figured out how to do yet? A fall pancake picnic! It would be so dreamy, gorgeous fall colors, a cozy Pendelton blanket, hot pour over coffee out of a thermos, and stacks and stacks of fluffy pancakes. Wouldn’t it be the cutest ever?

Apparently not. I just asked Mike if he would be down and just looked at me in silence. Maybe I need to just go for it anyway? How could someone not be happy seeing these mini pancakes!

What have you guys been up to? We watched Blade Runner 2049 and even though I have not watched the original and the sequel is not doing the best at the box office, I really liked it! We went to a super late show (it let out at almost 2 in the morning) and it wasn’t busy at all but it felt like the perfect time to watch a visually stunning neo-noir science fiction movie. It’s so interesting to me how people envision the future. Kind of scary but very fascinating too.

Anyway, I hope you guys are having an excellent weekend! Pancakes for everyone!

PS – I had extra of these so I just kept them in the fridge and popped them in the microwave whenever I needed a quick pumpkin pick me up. Not as good as fresh from the pan, but pretty darn good! I love how the chocolate chips got all melty again.

One-Bowl Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Pancakes
serves 2


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 ground cloves
  • 1/8 ground ginger

  • 1/2 tablespoon of butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

via A Cozy Kitchen

In a bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, pumpkin puree and butter.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, some lumps are okay. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Heat up a non-stick pan over medium low-heat and brush with butter. Drop the batter into the pan (I used a 1 tablespoon measure) and cook until small bubbles form on the surface and the edges are set. The pancakes should be golden brown. Flip and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy!

    yum yum yum ! I have really gotten a thing for pumpkin lately, and this one is definitely one to try!

  2. Okay, I don’t even care that I’m super busy this week, I absolutely positively HAVE to make time to make these pancakes! I am such a sucker for pumpkin chocolate chip, and I’ve also been on the lookout for a really good pumpkin pancake recipe (my mom always made a gross “healthy” pumpkin pancake… still need to recover from that one), so I’m super excited to try your recipe – I’m certain it will not disappoint!

    And I love your idea of a mini pancake picnic! How cute would that be? I feel like, if I asked my bf about it, he would give me the exact same response as Mike did to you, lol!

  3. Perfect for the season! I go for everything-pumpkin this month. Will definitely be trying these! xoxo

    Can I use 2% milk instead of buttermilk? Thanks! :)

    1. Stephanie says:

      yes! they might not be as thick, but it’ll definitely work :)

  5. a fall pancake picnic sounds pretty perfect to me! maybe it needs to be a non-mike thing (; i finally saw “wonder woman,” and loved it. she’s so kickass and i want to be her when i grow up and i definitely did not cry when a certain someone died.

    These look absolutely delish! I’m pinning the recipe and making it this weekend. Looks so perfect for the fall weather here in the Midwest.
