Using a high speed blender like a Vitamix, will make quick work of of this batter.  Although I’ve not tried another type of blender, if you can make a green smoothie in it, you can use it for this batter!  Also, be sure your almond butter doesn’t have any added sugar to keep this as low carb as possible!

These Pumpkin Pancakes are perfect for weekday meal prep or for a quick weekend breakfast!  The batter is made in the blender so it’s a snap to through together.  We typically make a double batch and keep them in the fridge for the girls to heat up for a yummy breakfast on school days!  Spiced up with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice, these Pumpkin Pancakes are sure to tame your pumpkin spice cravings…served up with butter, sugar free syrup or even some melted almond butter…DELISH!

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

  1. Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth and silky.

    Spray griddle pan and preheat a griddle pan over medium heat. Pour batter onto the griddle pan about 1/4 cup at a time.  You can make them smaller or larger, but keep in mind the larger they are the harder they are to flip! 

    Cook the pancake slowly over medium low heat until bubbles form on the batter and begin to burst about 2-3 minutes.  Carefully flip the pancake over with a spatula and continue to cook for about a minute.

    Repeat till all the batter is used.  Serve up with butter, sugar free syrup, melted almond butter or any other topping you like!  Store cooked pancakes in a covered container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Recipe Notes

To simplify this recipe even more, you can use 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg.

This recipe makes about 6 pancakes and is easily doubled or tripled as needed. 

Pyure Organic Stevia Blend is twice as sweet as sugar so if you're using another alternative sweetener that is as sweet as sugar (1:1) you will need to double the amount shown here.
