The first crisp fall mornings have arrived. Time to gather in the kitchen for cozy breakfasts. These fluffy vegan pumpkin pancakes are just the thing to make on a grey fall morning. A light and fluffy vegan buttermilk pancake batter swirled with a mix of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spices, maple syrup and brown sugar. Fall Central! These pumpkin pancakes look, feel and taste oh so special, but are quick to stir together.

Trust me, these are so much better than Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pancake Mix .

The recipe features a quick homemade vegan buttermilk batter and  a pumpkin pie spice swirl that gives the batter a pretty orange color and that signature pumpkin pie taste. I don’t mix the pumpkin purée directly in the batter. The purée is cooked with the pie spice and maple syrup and thickened to a pumpkin butter which is swirled into the batter. This adds bursts of pumpkin flavor in the pancakes!
