Today we鈥檙e taking pancakes to the next level. Pancakes are the ultimate comfort food, and what makes this recipe fantastic is the fact that we鈥檙e flavoring them with pumpkin. Not only do they taste like cinnamon-y pumpkin-y goodness, but they鈥檙e made with healthy chickpea flour (which Pinterest reports is up by 30%!). Some of you might be going whaaaaa?! But this lovely legume can be used in more ways than we ever thought possible (like aquafaba, for example). Well, we鈥檙e still very much on board with the healthy substitution trend to make our favorites a *little* bit better for us (leaving room for drowning these babies in maple syrup!). After all, that鈥檚 what life is all about, amirite? Read on to see how it鈥檚 done.
