Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancake Bars

Music to my ears. These Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancake Bars were a huge hit with my teens and were literally thrown together in a few minutes time.

When you have hungry teenagers and a million and one things to do, you have to try to cut corners when you can.

I had a million things to do the morning I made these and I still had to feed hungry teenagers. So I did!


These are so easy to whip up. You can use any kind of pancake mix that you enjoy.

I used boxed mix that required just adding water, but you can totally do these from scratch.

We attempted that a few days later to be sure they’d work.

I am happy to announce they do!

And they only take 5 steps once you have that pancake batter.

Fifteen minutes until done and you can even grab a shower while they are in the oven! 


  1. Prepare Pan
  2. Add batter
  3. Add pumpkin and brown sugar.
  4. Swirl it all together
  5. Bake

Okay so maybe there’s a 6th step.

Slice a piece, cover in syrup (or not) and consume! 🙂

My teens consumed a whole pan. 


I love it when a quick breakfast comes together like this and they all moan in delight with each bite.

I know I was successful in creating something they love.
