These Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes are easy to make and freeze well. Make a batch, freeze it, and take out what you need for breakfast. Kids and adults will love this combination of pumpkin and chocolate.
I made these Pumpkin Spice Oat Chocolate Chip Pancakes for our youngest son recently and rather than make a small batch, I decided to make one whole batch. As he stared at the huge stage of pancakes that I made, he asked why I had made so many pancakes. I think I just miss cooking for a big family.
After he ate his small stack of pancakes and I gave a stack to my husband, I froze the rest. We’ve been pulling these out for school day breakfasts – it’s not all bad, right?

Having leftovers for during the week is definitely NOT a bad thing! Especially not when they are so crazy fluffy pumpkiny as these are.

if it makes you feel any better, we’ve always just been a family of 4 and I’ve never gotten used to cooking the right amount of food. . I’m really cooking for 3 since my kids are young and not huge eaters but I’m always cooking for 4-6, which means lots of leftovers and now my husband knows not to ask, why did you make so much? 🙂 I love the idea of freezing pancakes!! Duh. . brilliant idea!!! love these pancakes!

OOh I would so so love to have a stack of these in my freezer – they sure would be a welcome treat on busy mornings – so if you feel the need to cook for a big family – please go ahead – and send me some of the leftovers? 🙂

Pumpkin pancakes are perfect for October and these one look amazing!
What a beautiful stack of pancakes! I love making more and freezing leftovers to have on hand – I have a feeling a batch of these would not last long at our house though – they look mouthwatering!
Helene D'Souza says
I think so too, cooking for bigger families is easier then for smaller. It’s more fun too when you have big eaters. =) I think these pancakes would turn anybody out there into big eaters Jeanette. =)
Gwen @SimplyHealthyFamily says
I have to make double batches of pancakes and am lucky if there are some left to freeze! I can’t wait to try these I know they will be a huge hit! Can I ask why you use soy milk? I’ve heard so many reports of it being not good for you as it’s very high on the GMO list and can cause health problems.
