Servings 7 pancakes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix!
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour*
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil or butter melted
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • optional toppings or mix-ins: mini chocolate chips white chocolate chips (my personal favorites), berries, maple syrup, peanut butter, pecans

Instructions
 

  • 1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the pumpkin puree, eggs, almond milk, melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. 
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
  • 3. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, until just combined. Don't over mix! The batter will be thick but look like pancakes batter. 
  • 4. Heat a skillet with coconut oil or coconut oil spray. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop up the batter and pour into the pan.
  • 5. Let cook on the griddle or pan until you start to see little bubbles forming on the side and then flip. Repeat with remaining batter. 
  • 6. Top pancakes with berries, bananas slices, pecans and melted nut butter or a touch of maple syrup.
