How to Make Pumpkin Pancakes
Looking for a healthy and delicious breakfast option featuring this infamous fruit of the season? Why not try gluten free pumpkin pancakes? Pumpkin pancakes are a great way to enjoy all the flavors of fall.
Here’s a recipe for some Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes to help get you in the autumn spirit. They’re healthy, too, thanks to wholesome ingredients and some added spices. Made with oat flour and sweetened with maple syrup, these pancakes are not only packed with pumpkin goodness, but they’re also gluten-free and refined sugar free. And best of all, they’re super easy to make.
To start, simply place some old fashioned oats in a food processor and process until they reach a flour-like texture. Then mix the oat flour with pumpkin puree, baking soda, unsweetened almond milk (or another milk), eggs, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
Once the batter is well-mixed, coat a pan with cooking spray and set it to medium heat on your stovetop. When the pan is hot, add about a quarter-cup of the batter to the pan for each pancake. Cook the pancake for two to four minutes until it bubbles around the edges and is golden brown on the underside. Then flip and cook for another few minutes.
Add more cooking spray to the pan as needed and repeat the process with the remaining batter. Finally, serve your pumpkin spice pancakes warm with all of your favorite toppings!
There are so many tasty toppings that you can enjoy on these pumpkin oatmeal pancakes. Top them with some extra pure or sugar-free maple syrup. Add a drizzle of honey or chocolate syrup. Make pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes or pumpkin pecan pancakes. Top with sliced bananas or apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon. The combinations are endless!
