Pumpkin spice isn’t just a flavor. It’s your obsession. From coffee and cookies to donuts and dips, you dream of the sweet-spiciness infused into your favorite foods—not just in October, but all year long. Thanks to the latte craze, there’s no shortage of instant mixes and products to help you get your fix, even in February. But you don’t have to rely on packaged, processed goods for the taste you crave. These pancakes can be on the griddle in minutes, made from ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Add a scoop of pumpkin spice protein powder for an extra-nutritious kick!
