Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

Autumn is well and truly here, and thank goodness too! I’ve grown to love this time of year mainly for how cosy I feel when I’m all snuggled up with a nice hot choc, and my candles are lit (the only thing that ever gets ‘lit’ in my life ;)).

Not only this, but Autumn means the return of the mighty pumpkin (and all those extra carvings that you could probably display in the Tate). It’s all about the Pumpkin; pumpkin energy balls, pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles…It’s everywhere! There is so much you can do with pumpkins, so I thought I’d Autumn-ify my Protein Pancake recipe and bring you something inspired from the States.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of tinned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 a tsp of baking powder
  • 45g of oats
  • 1.5 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp of honey
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Mixed spice
  • One egg
  • 1 and a 1/2 tsp Greek yoghurt
  • 50-60ml of your choice of milk
  • Coconut oil (for greasing the pan)

Method:

  1. Preheat your frying pan (on a low heat)
  2. Place the oats in a blender until you get a flour-like texture
  3. Add in the egg, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, honey, spices, baking powder, and yoghurt and blend until combined
  4. Next, add in your choice of milk bit by bit until you get a pourable batter
  5. Put some coconut oil in the pan (now turned up to a medium-high heat) and pour your pancake batter in
  6. Flip each pancake once the edges turn a golden colour
  7. Keep topping the pan up with coconut oil after each couple of pancakes
  8. Serve and enjoy! (I would highly recommend serving them with something chocolatey!)
