Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancakes (Perkins Copycat)

One of the best parts about fall is pumpkin everything! Many restaurants update their menus around this time to include pumpkin recipes. My favorite has been the oatmeal pumpkin pancakes at Perkins (although it appears it has been discontinued šŸ˜¦ ). I tried many times to replicate it, but continued to make pancakes that either did not have the right texture or flavor. Well, I finally came up with a recipe that I feel is very close to Perkins. The pancakes are very flavorful with the pumpkin pie spice flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and they are very fluffy! Additionally, they are (of course) healthier than Perkins’ šŸ˜‰ Lower in saturated fat and sodium, and higher in fiber and protein!
