How to make Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes with Oat Flour

Blend until completely smooth. Using a spatula, remove any dry ingredients that are attached to the walls of the blender vase and blend again.

Place a saucepan over medium heat and lightly coat it with some butter. 

Once the butter is melted, start making the pancakes. Add about 1/3 cup of the batter to the saucepan for each pancake, or you can make your own size if you prefer.

If the batter is thick and doesn’t spread on the pan, you can use a  spoon or a spatula to spread out the batter a bit. The batter gets thicker as it sits, so it is better to cook the pancakes right after blending.

But if your batter gets too thick, you can add extra almond milk, start with 1 tbsp, and mix with a spatula to check the consistency before adding more milk if necessary.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

These healthy pumpkin pancakes are gluten free if you make them with certified gluten free oats. Oats are naturally gluten free but during the manufacturing process, they can sometimes become contaminated with gluten.

Are oat flour pancakes healthy?

Yes, oat flour is a healthy gluten free flour. If you are on a diet where you need to restrict carbs, it is not a good choice for you since oats are high in carbs.

What can you do with canned pumpkin that is not a pie?

You can do many things with canned pumpkin that is not pie. Making a healthy pumpkin pancake recipe like this is a great way to use pumpkin puree or leftover pumpkin pie filling.

Can I use any oats to make oat flour?

You can use a variety of oats to make oat flour. You can use old-fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, or steel-cut oats to make oat flour. Different types of oats create different amounts of oat flour. For example, steel-cut oats will create more oat flour.

For this recipe, I suggest you use old-fashioned oats so you end up with the same amount of oat flour.

Can I make these no flour pumpkin pancakes egg free?

Yes, you can make these easy pumpkin pancakes egg free. Use your favorite egg replacer. I haven’t tried this recipe egg free but it should work just fine.

The pancakes might be a little more brittle. With ingredients like pumpkin puree and maple syrup, the batter will hold up well with any egg replacer.
