These pumpkin oatmeal pancakes made with warming spices, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, and hearty oats are so delicious and healthy and can be made right in your blender. Bonus, they are gluten-free & dairy-free.
We always have a big special breakfast over the weekend. We tend to rotate between Ray’s amazing crepes, my breakfast burritos made with soy chorizo, or these amazing Pumpkin oatmeal pancakes. All are fairly easy but these give you all the cozy comfort feels that fall and winter are just around the corner.
Tips for the Most Delicious Pancakes
For best results, blend your batter until it is completely smooth. Depending on the strength of your blender this could take thirty seconds to a minute.
This batter can thicken pretty quickly if you don’t use it right away. If your pancake batter gets too thick, you can thin it out by adding a little extra almond milk to the mixture.
If you are having an issue spreading out the batter on your pan, use the back of a spoon to spread the batter out.
It’s best to cook this batch of pancakes on low to medium-low heat. You want to make sure that the inside is cooked through without the outside being burnt.
How To Freeze Leftover Pumpkin Pancakes
These pancakes freeze really well! I lay them in a single layer on a large baking sheet and pull them out for a quick breakfast on those busy mornings.
If you don’t have the freezer space to keep a sheet in the freezer for a long period of time. Take the pancakes off the sheet pan after being in the freezer for 1 hour. You can place them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
Once ready to reheat, simply add pancakes to a plate and microwave for 30-60 seconds or until warm.
