Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole oats finely ground
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened kefir
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • olive oil cooking spray for greasing pan *can also use coconut oil

Instructions

  • Grind oats in a food processor until finely ground.
  • Whisk ground oats, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl
  • Whisk egg and egg whites together
  • Blend remaining ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk in the eggs
  • Combine the flour mixture and liquid mixture together and whisk until blended
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake mix onto the hot skillet and cook until pancake begins to bubble.  If the pan is too hot, the pancake will brown too quickly before its ready to flip. Flip pancake and cook the other side for 2 minutes. 
  • Optional: Top pancakes with butter, good quality maple syrup, and toasted pecans.
