Why we love these healthy pumpkin pancakes
I love these healthy pumpkin pancakes because they're so easy to make. I'm not one to want to make a big mess with breakfast on the weekends, so having a recipe like this that's easy (and easy to clean) is great.
All you need to make this healthy pumpkin pancakes recipe is a blender and either a griddle or pan. Add all of the ingredients into the blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the batter is smooth.
- Rolled oats (I use Gluten Free): we like to use Bob's Red Mill!
- Almond milk: you could also swap this for any dairy free milk you like.
- Banana: try to use one that is over-ripe and slightly starting to brown, It's a little mushier and easier to mix.
- Pumpkin puree: make sure you don't buy pumpkin pie mix. The puree is pumpkin only and includes so many nutrients and fiber.
- Pure maple syrup: this adds a little sweetness to them, but you can leave it out if you only want to sweeten it with banana.
- Fall spices: pumpkin pie spice is the best and adds so much warmth to this recipe.

How to make healthy pumpkin pancakes
- Start by adding the gluten free oats to the blender. Blend them on high for a minute or so to create an oat flour.
- Next, add the rest of the ingredients to the blender then close the lid and turn it on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the batter is smooth.
- Heat your griddle or a pan on the stove to medium-low heat. Grease with grass-fed butter or coconut oil cooking spray. Pour or scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan once it's hot.
- Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes, or until sides start to bubble then flip them once and cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side. Try to avoid flipping multiple times.
- Serve warm with your favorite toppings!
