Healthy Pumpkin Oat Pancakes

Good morning! I feel like I haven’t written a recipe post in ages. I’m back today with a super easy and healthy breakfast recipe that encompasses everything good about the fall season.

Pumpkin Oat Pancakes! (I had a bit of a photo failure here… Poured way too much maple syrup and the cinnamon came out super fast. I couldn’t wait to share the recipe though, so these photos will suffice for now!)

These gems are made from old fashioned oats, greek yogurt and pumpkin. As I said, healthy and delicious! In addition, they’re gluten-free. I made them on a whim last weekend and will definitely be making them again. There are many ways to add pumpkin to your breakfast, but this may just be my new favorite!

If you’ve never made oat pancakes, they’re a bit denser than regular pancakes – not as light and fluffy.

But equally tasty and as easy as 1, 2, 3!

First, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Then form the batter into desired shapes and cook over medium heat for a few minutes, flipping every minute or two.

Top with maple syrup and cinnamon and enjoy!

  4. I love that these have greek yogurt in them. I have been seeing so many pumpkin pancake recipes lately, I really had better try one out one of these days

  5. Great recipe! I have a pumpkin oat recipe in my archives somewhere, but they don’t include any Greek yogurt. Guess I’ll just have to try yours too 😉

  6. Nice! Coincidentally I have pumpkin pancake batter on the counter right now ready to cook. But it’s nothing special, just a boxed TJ’s pumpkin pancake batter that’s been in the cupboard for a long time that I thought I’d made for the kids. I won’t even be able to eat the pancakes, but I could eat your gluten-free ones! Pinning…..
