Woo… Summertime has been a whirlwind!!! Three energetic kiddos at home plus travelling, camps, sleepovers, swim teams, and birthdays (we have 3 in the span of less than 3 weeks during the summer) have kept me more than busy. I truly believe children photosynthesize during the summer. They do nothing but EAT, EAT, EAT and GROW! Good gracious do they grow! My 11 year old is taller than most of my girlfriends!

I feel like the whole summer is make a meal, clean up a meal, make a meal, clean up a meal… I think you see where this is leading! So I’ve found that food that satisfies, nourishes, and fills them up for hours is my saving grace during the summer. And making extra helps us on the busier days, even with breakfast items.

Today, with a gaggle of little girls here for a birthday sleepover and the “helping hands” of my 4 year old little one, I made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes. The pumpkin makes the pancakes thick and fluffy and they’re made with whole wheat flour, so not only are they super delicious but they’re good for you too!

Every time I make pancakes, I always make a double or triple batch. ALWAYS! I love an oversized electric countertop griddle that enables me to cook 8 pancakes at a time. It’s the handiest appliance for families. That way I can make enough for breakfast and freeze the rest between sheets of waxed deli paper to have hot breakfast at the ready on busy school mornings (or mornings when the family lovingly let’s the cook sleep in).

This recipe is already a big batch. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes pulled from the freezer on busy weekday mornings is a happy family godsend! You’ll want to have extras!
