Most Sunday mornings I wake up a little earlier than the rest of the family to make something special in the kitchen. This weekly tradition began when my oldest daughter was born. I was determined to be “that mom,” to make most baked goods from scratch and to prepare other homemade dishes with lots of love mixed into every recipe. My desire to make Sunday mornings special has everything to do with wanting my kids to look back on their childhood with fondness as they recall delicious memories and give them something to look forward to every week with expectant anticipation.
Today I am sharing a recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Studded with mini chocolate chips, this autumn recipe is inspired by all the pumpkin pastries I see encased at our local coffee shop.
Although I do not recommend eating these pancakes on a regular basis as part as a healthy diet regimen, indulging in these pancakes once in a while, especially during this time of year, or when hosting guests will make those who get to eat it feel special knowing the hands who prepared the dish made them from a place of love. Recipes like this one is what makes Sunday mornings special in our home and I hope they make your Sundays special, too. Enjoy!
