You know, I was saving this Bisquick pumpkin spice pancakes recipe for October, but pumpkin fever seems to hit earlier and earlier every year. The moment Starbucks releases the Pumpkin Spice Latte, all bets are off! I read this morning on The Morning Fresh that the PSL doesn’t even have any pumpkin in it… which is just something I never really thought about. I feel duped.
But no fear, because you don’t need to pay $4-something for faux pumpkin (unless you want to, of course). You can add pumpkin, the real thing, and cinnamon to so many things you already make, and it’s downright scrumptious. Be creative, I dare you.
Xavier isn’t much of a pumpkin man, but I go on and make a full recipe anyway, bag up the extras, stash them in the freezer, and pull them down during the week for some weekday pumpkin goodness. Learn how to store pancakes in the freezer.
And then just a little trick I picked up from Lily M on Youtube, you can put your iPhone in a sandwich baggie and still use it like normal. This is a huge help when baking. Because flour.
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1-1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used Almond milk, unsweet)
- Heat pan to medium heat and spray with cooking spray or coat with butter (try Earth Balance) or oil.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Add pumpkin and vanilla and stir.
- Slowly add milk, until the consistency is to your liking. For fluffier pancakes, let the batter sit for a few minutes before cooking.
- Pour ¼ cup or less of batter on to the pan, depending on how big you want your pancakes.
- Cook both sides until golden.
PS, I assure you, I did not forget the egg. Eggs in Bisquick pancakes are so unnecessary, it’s ridonkulous.

Lastly, please note that there are several versions of Bisquick and not all are vegan. Bisquick Original contains no milk ingredients, though someone on Reddit pointed out that the “Betty Crocker Bisquick Multi-Purpose Baking Mix” in the UK does contain milk ingredients. Read labels!
