Ingredients

Scale

Pumpkin Pancakes

  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Warm Cinnamon Apples

  • 2 McIntosh apples, diced small
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Combine all the pancake ingredients together in the order listed in a high powered blender. Blend on medium-high until completely smooth, and no chunks of oats remain.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add spray oil, and scoop pancake batter using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes until bottom is golden brown, flip, and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Repeat with the remaining batter. Spray the pan with oil between each batch.
  4. While you are making the pancakes, prepare the cinnamon apples. Heat coconut oil on medium heat in a small skillet. Add the diced apples and cinnamon. Stir to combine, and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Apples will be fork tender and fragrant when done. 
  5. Serve pancakes topped with a drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon apples.
