Easy Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes



– 1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats (not instant), blended into oat flour – 1 1/2 tbsp. unflavored collagen protein – 1 tsp. monk fruit granular sweetener – 1 tsp. baking powder – 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice – 1/2 tsp. cinnamon – 1/4 tsp. salt – 1/3 c. milk (dairy or plant based) – 1/3 c. pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix) – 1 egg – 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


Step 1

In a blender or food processor, add the oats and blend/process into oat flour. Depending on the blender/food processor, this should just take about 30-45 seconds to render flour.

For baking pancakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour out 5-6, 4" pancakes on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake the pancakes for 12-14 minutes or until the pancakes are firm in the center.
