  • 2 ¼ cups oats gluten free oats if desired
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond cashew, coconut or oat milk
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • coconut oil or grass-fed butter for cooking


  • Place the oats in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend on high to create an oat flour.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend on high until completely mixed together and oats have broken down, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Heat a griddle or large non-stick pan over medium heat and melt a teaspoon or two of coconut oil or grass-fed butter in the pan. Once the pan or griddle is hot, pour or scoop 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan.

Serve warm with extra bananas, butter, extra fruit, nuts, nut butter or maple syrup.
