The Perfect Fall Morning Breakfast

Fall, it’s one of the best times of the year. I know I never want to let go of summer but once fall has arrived I can’t help but love everything about it. The changing leaves, cool crisp mornings, all the fall flavors, hot cups of coffee and all the pumpkin things! Starbucks® has released their limited time Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice ground coffee at ShopRite and I couldn’t be more excited. I am so excited to make my own pumpkin spice coffee at home every single morning-who doesn’t love pumpkin spice coffee? Sitting down with Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Coffee and a delicious breakfast makes for the perfect fall morning.

The Prefect Fall Morning - Pumpkin Spice Pancake Recipe // The Krystal Diaries

Most weekday mornings are a rush around here. I hardly have time to sit down and enjoy breakfast but on the weekends, I like to take it a little slower in the mornings. Something about fall mornings is just so incredibly perfect and relaxing. It’s like time stands still. Nothing is better than sitting down or curling up and enjoying a warm cup of pumpkin spice coffee and making breakfast. What could better to pair the Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice ground coffee than homemade pumpkin spice pancakes! It is pumpkin season after all, and it only lasts for so long.

The Perfect Fall Morning - Pumpkin Spice Pancake Recipe // The Krystal Diaries

Making these pumpkin spice pancakes is pretty simple and it’s a great way to take it slow in the morning. Most of the ingredients are things almost everyone has in their fridge and pantry. Now I like to use whole milk or buttermilk to make my pancakes, but if you’re dairy free, feel free to replace with your milk of choice. I do recommend a cashew or soy milk as those are thicker and creamier for this recipe.

This recipe makes about 12 pancakes and they store well in the fridge for about a week if you don’t finish them. Just throw them in a toaster on the lowest setting and you can enjoy pumpkin flavors all week long! Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice ground coffee and pumpkin spice pancakes make those weekday mornings a little more enjoyable!

    I am a complete coffee addict, and Fall is my favorite time of the year, so heck yeah, I am going to try this recipe. I am so tired of the summer heat! I have actually seen that type of coffee the other day in the store and was wondering if it was good. Well, now that I know, I am going to give it a try myself. Thanks.
