Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancakes

Oatmeal pumpkin pancakes are a delicious fall inspired weekend breakfast. They’re made entirely with oat flour for a healthy (gluten-free) start to the day.

Ok, I know the vote was for the brownies but, before I get booed off stage here let me explain…

Oatmeal pumpkin pancakes are a delicious fall inspired weekend breakfast. They're made entirely with oat flour for a healthy (gluten-free) start to the day.

1. It’s Sunday. Otherwise known as “pancake day” right?

I mean, what good would it do you if I posted a pancake recipe during the work week when you’d just have to bookmark it and wait out the whole rest of the week before having the time to make it on the weekend? I’m just trying to save you from that torture.

2. I’m not quite finished with the pictures of the brownies. Oops.

Hopefully you’ll forgive me.

When it comes to pancakes, I’m not ashamed to admit that 95% of the time I use a mix.

Trader Joe’s multigrain pancake mix is where it’s at and if I had that on hand yesterday, I probably would’ve just added the pumpkin straight into the mix and called it breakfast.

Unfortunately though, I haven’t been to TJ’s in more than 2 months and we’re out.

Between my pancake mix, veggie masala burgers and pizza dough, it’s getting tragic over here.

So, I improvised and used oats instead in these oatmeal pumpkin pancakes.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes are a gluten-free stack perfect for fall.

I also had just finished up the bag of flour and didn’t want to open another.

Oat bran is another great option in situations like this – see these cinnamon raisin oat bran pancakes. So hearty and tasty!

If you thought these recipes all came from diligent thought and not my pure laziness at times, sorry to have burst that bubble for you.

Sometimes laziness can be tasty though.

If you could taste fall, these would be it.

Pumpkin + spices + maple syrup.

Perfect weekend breakfast.

Pumpkin in pancakes is one of my favorite.

Try out these pumpkin protein pancakes for a higher protein option or these sweet potato chocolate chip pancakes where you can swap out the sweet potatoes for pumpkin (or leave it as it, it’s delicious and so similar to pumpkin any way!)

Hearty oat flour makes these oatmeal pumpkin pancakes a delicious gluten-free stack.

Don’t miss these protein pancakes either – they’re actually a pancake recipe I like to make in batches and freeze so I can have some filling, protein-packed pancakes any day of the week!

The brownies are coming, I promise.

What’s your favorite weekend breakfast?

What’s your favorite pancake topping? I usually top mine with yogurt, fruit and maple syrup. I skipped the yogurt this time though.

What’s your workout today? I’m loving doing my long runs on Monday. Enjoying my Sunday without a long run hanging over me is much more relaxing!
