This pumpkin spice syrup recipe is perfect for fall! Made with whole, simple ingredients, this syrup is perfect for coffee, pancakes, or cookies!
Happy fall! It’s been a minute since I posted here. Between my two EMS jobs, my husband’s 30th birthday, my 30th birthday, September has flown by. But you can bet I won’t be missing out on pumpkin season!! I don’t know why pumpkin has such a chokehold on me. I know it’s evolved into this target of public derision (specifically at women), but pumpkin is objectively delicious. I love it in sweet and savory contexts, like my classic pumpkin spice latte recipe or vegan pumpkin mac and cheese. But what it ultimately comes down to, at least for me, is that pumpkin evokes the feeling of fall.
Fall’s always been my favorite season. I was one of those weird kids who looked forward to the start of the school year. Waiting for the bus in the chilly morning air, the class Halloween party, going trick-or-treating with my friends… it’s always felt magical. Even though being a grown-up with bills and work and stress dampers the fall festivity, breaking out my pumpkin candles and soap always boosts my mood.
And I guarantee this pumpkin spice syrup will boost your mood when you try it! It’s dead simple to make, and it’s super versatile. Below I photographed some chocolate chip pancakes I made for my husband, that I drizzled with this syrup. No surprise, he loved them! But my go-to is adding the syrup to my coffee, along with some Silk Oatmeal Cookie creamer. Another delicious option would be dipping my vegan banana bread in this syrup. The possibilities are endless! :)
