Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancake Bars
Fluffy and delicious Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancake Bars are the perfect breakfast for hungry teens and kids! You can even make them up the night before!
These are so great for a sleepover!! And we love sleepover recipes!
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!
- Prepare Pan
- Add batter
- Add pumpkin and brown sugar.
- Swirl it all together
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.

oh my gawd, I am so making this tomorrow morning.
My son had 2 friends over for dinner after they went surfing yesterday. I had bought steak in the half-price bin that day intending it to be dinner for the 3 of us us, but hey, we roll with the punches, right? (I found something else for my dinner)
So I made them a dang steak dinner with steak, homemade mashed potatoes and Caesar salad, and you know what? They gobbled it up and said, “We’re still hungry. What else do you have?”
So yeah, I really need to fill up some empty teenage boys.
I feel your pain! haha Teenagers have like a never-ending appetite. It’s insane. Boys are the worse! haha
Hope they enjoyed it!
I like easy and love pancakes. Have to try the pumpkin spice version of this bar, yum!
I hope you enjoy them!! Happy baking!
They look really tasty and really quick too as you say. If only we could get pumpkin puree easily here in the UK.
Great idea turning a pancake into a bar! So much faster and easier to make!
My hubby would LOVE these, he really likes pancakes as a treat.
I want pumpkin spice everything right now. And these pancake bars look fantastic! And such a unique twist on the traditional pancake!
Yum yum yum! This looks an amazing fall treat!
What a clever idea! (Even if you’re not feeding bottomless pit teens… LOL )
I totally see that for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning, especially if you have a housefull of relatives.
My husband has a love affair with pancakes. I’ll have to make this for him.
