Pumpkin Pancakes

In our house we LOVE pancakes, and this time of year we are all about PUMPKIN PANCAKES 🎃🥞

I know mornings are often the busiest time of day, at least in our house anyway, so I am always looking for healthy and delicious breakfasts that are quick and easy. These pumpkin pancakes definitely fit the bill. One of our favorite things to do is make a big double batch on the weekend and freeze one to eat during the week. This way every weekday can feel like a Sunday morning .

My daughter, Sloane loves to help with the cooking. It might make the process a little longer (and messier), but it’s a great way to start building healthy eating habits. Plus, kids love to eat what they cook!😉

Ingredients (1 serving of 6-8 pancakes)

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1 egg

3 TBSP milk (I use unsweetened almond

    milk)

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 TBSP pure maple syrup

1/2 tsp baking powder

 

Instructions

– Heat a skillet on the stove and lightly coated with cooking spray (I prefer coconut oil spray).

 

– Blend oats in blender or food processor to make oat flour

 

– Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth

 

– Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour batter onto hot skillet

 

– Cook until edges turn golden and bubbles appear. Flip pancakes and cook 1-2 more minutes

– Enjoy with your favorite toppings. Apples and cinnamon are a nice pairing with these pancakes. We love to chop up some apple and sauteé them in the hot pan with cinnamon and a little coconut oil. We also enjoy warmed up peanut butter, or some homemade apple butter drizzled on top.
