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

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I love pumpkin spice coffee! The pancakes intrigue me. Seriously have my mouth watering right now! My perfect fall morning is waking up, different cinnamon or pumpkin spice coffee, and decorating for fall for the first time!

    Pumpkin spice season is one of my favorites! There’s just something about the smell, and taste, of everything that makes me so happy. I love having the occasional breakfast feast so I’m definitely trying these!

    I love Fall so much, it’s my favourite season by far! I also love PSLs and have already had far too many lol! I didn’t realise they did pumpkin spice ground coffee; I need to hunt this down so I can enjoy one every morning and make these pancakes of course!

  32. 9.20.17

    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.

  35. 9.21.17

    Like you, I LOVE summer but I am always ready for fall! I live for Sweater Weather, booties, and anything pumpkin. Pumpkin pancakes (with pecans) are my all-time favorite. Thank you for reminding me it’s time to go get those cans of pumpkin!!!
