In This Recipe
Whisk flour, baking powder, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and sea salt together in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon melted butter until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. The mixture should have a few lumps and not be completely smooth. If the batter is too thick, thin out with a little more milk.
Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little butter to the pan or griddle and spread it evenly. Ladle about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the heated, butter griddle or pan, working in batches as needed.
