Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes

Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes

You NEED these in your life this weekend. Because seriously, does anything say lazy Fall Sunday better than Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes?!

That’s right, we fully #PSL’ed these pancakes.

Pumpkin Spice Latte (#PSL) Pancakes

Pumpkin pancakes are a home run every time, but would it really be fall if we didn’t try to #PSL everything?!

So with the small addition of a tablespoon of espresso (or strong black coffee), these pancakes are upleveled—the coffee helps to balance out the sweetness of the pumpkin.

I also added a handful of old-fashioned oats—I feel like I’m always hungry 2 hours after a pancake breakfast, so the oats give them a little more staying power!

You’ve gotta make these pancakes part of your weekend. They’re super easy (a must on lazy weekend mornings) and SO yummy. All they need is a heavy drizzle of warm maple syrup and a big mug of coffee on the side (preferably pumpkin!).

And the leftovers (if you have any!) are AWESOME as a Monday morning breakfast—just toss ’em in the toaster quickly and spread with some almond butter and a small drizz of maple syrup. Talk about a good way to start the week!
