I really loved the quick and on-the-go mini chocolate chip pancake muffins I made last week. Since I’ve been on a pumpkin baking spree, I thought I’d try making a pumpkin one too.

These were wetter and a little heavier than the original ones as a result of the pumpkin puree, but they tasted great. I added some sugar to the batter so they were sweet on their own and don’t need any syrup. Next time I might try adding maple syrup to the batter instead of sugar.

I added cinnamon to the batter too to make it a little more fall-like. I might try some pumpkin pie spice next time. I also sprinkled some cinnamon on top along with the chocolate chips. These were quite tasty and perfect for Fall.

I used Bisquick mix rather than make them from scratch because I have a bunch of bisquick to get rid of it. One of these days I’ll try making the recipe from scratch. But the mix makes these even quicker. It’s also perfect to pack and go to eat in the car or at work. The only thing is, I recommend eating them the day of. Just like regular pancakes.

      I liked the bright orange. The original pancake muffins were such a pale yellow.

    These look delicious! I only have a regular size muffin tin – how would you adjust the cooking time?

      I would do about 20 minutes and then start checking on them. I’m guessing it would be about 20-25 minutes.

    Is “pumpkin puree” the same as canned pumpkin pie filling?

    • Kirbie replied: — September 28th, 2012 @ 9:04 am

      If you buy canned pumpkin, they have 2 kinds at the grocery store. One is pure pumpkin puree. The other is pumpkin pie filling which has spices and other stuff in it. You want the pure pumpkin one, not the pumpkin pie filling one.
