  • 2 cups whole oats finely ground
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened kefir
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • olive oil cooking spray for greasing pan *can also use coconut oil


  • 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 ¼ 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.
