Amazing Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes made in one bowl with real pumpkin and sweetened with maple syrup. The ultimate fall breakfast! Gluten free.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (almond, oat, cow's, etc)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or melted coconut oil)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup super fine blanched almond flour, packed (87g)
  • 2/3 cup oat flour (58g)
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, add pumpkin, milk, egg, maple syrup, and oil. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Add almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk until combined. It will be a thick batter.
  3. Grease a large skillet with cooking spray and heat to to medium low. Once hot, add ¼ cup of batter to skillet, repeating as needed. Cook for about 3 minutes per side (be careful to watch for burning), flipping once bubbles start to form and cooking another 2-3 minutes or until golden. Turn down the heat if pancakes are browning too quickly. Enjoy with maple syrup!


If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can sub 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1/4 teaspoon each ginger, allspice, cloves and nutmeg.

Using store-bought oat flour (versus homemade) yields fluffier pancakes.
