These fluffy pancakes are packed with cozy fall flavors like pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and cinnamon! Made with oat flour and sweetened with a hint of coconut sugar!
If there were three flavors I had to pick as my top favorites, pumpkin spice is at the top. Pumpkin spice is basically a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice, ginger and vanilla. Not all pumpkin spice is the same, but generally those are the spices that go into making a pumpkin spice mix!
Once I open a can of pumpkin, I think of all the recipes I want to make. I usually add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of puree in my recipes. I have about 9 cans in my cabinet right now so I’m stocked!
For the past 3 weeks, I’ve been checking all my local grocery stores for canned pumpkin. They were always out of stock. When I went to TJ’s two days ago, they just stocked up… so I grabbed 5 of them, haha!
I also have some other pancake recipes on my blog! I really like both my Blueberry Banana Pancakes and Almond Flour Pancakes! I’m currently working on a recipe for Sweet Potato pancakes! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know this past week I’ve gone through 8 sweet potatoes. I baked fries, mashed them into bread loaves and have it steamed or roasted for breakfast. Sweet potatoes is a favorite!
Baking with Oat Flour
Oat flour is easy to make at home. You just add raw oats into a blender of food processor and pulse until it’s a fine texture. When a recipe calls for 1 cup oat flour, measure it AFTER. Oat flour is a gluten-free, light and absorbent flour that can be used in cakes, breads and muffins! I have been using oat flour in so many of my recipes lately. It is cost efficient, nutritious and I am a fan of the texture it gives my baked goods.
Make sure you use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie pilling contains added spices and other ingredients . Your can of pumpkin puree should be pure pumpkin!
Hope you enjoy this recipe!! <3
