Pumpkin chia seed pancakes recipe

Every once in awhile I stumble across a recipe so unique that I absolutely have to share with my readers. These pumpkin chia seed pancakes from Nestle is one of those recipes. Not only are these pancakes delicious, they give a great nutritional boost, as well!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour or white whole-wheat flour 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (optional) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 cups lowfat buttermilk 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1/2 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin 
  • 2 tablespoons honey, granulated sugar or packed brown sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled 
  • 2 tablespoons Chia seeds, plus more for garnish 
  • Nonstick cooking spray 
  • Pure maple syrup 

COMBINE flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in large bowl. 

WHISK together buttermilk, eggs, pumpkin, honey and butter in large bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir until combined. Do not over-mix. Let batter sit for 10 minutes; stir in chia seeds. 

SPRAY griddle or a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Pour ¼ cup batter for each pancake into skillet and cook for about 2 minutes or until edges are set and look dry. Flip over and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. Top with syrup and additional chia seeds.
