Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Blender Pancakes

I’m full-on pumpkin obsessed right now! It’s kinda crazy how many pumpkin goodies we’ve been trying and how many pumpkin treats I’ve been making us. I keep thinking it’s too much too soon, but I know we’ll never tire of pumpkin because we love it so much and enjoy it year-round. We just increase our consumption considerably in the fall because all things pumpkin are available at the stores and all the yummy pumpkin recipes start making their way onto all my social feeds, especially Pinterest.

I love that pumpkin can be baked into the most indulgent of desserts yet really comes through when included in a healthy recipe because of how nutritious it is on it’s own.

The boys new school starts about an hour earlier than their old school so we have to get ourselves up and going in the mornings. Certainly not much time to make anything too complicated for breakfast so we usually stick to toast, eggs, cereal or on a great morning, pancakes!!

I came across an easy and super healthy recipe for oatmeal apple pancakes made in the blender on Whole Food’s website, so I decided to give them a try. Pancakes are always a breakfast winner in our house, so I’m always looking for and creating yummy pancake recipes for us to enjoy in the mornings. I didn’t have applesauce on hand the morning I came across this recipe, so I decided to try them with pumpkin. I’m so glad I did, because they turned out so tasty and are super easy to make.

The boys love helping me with these pancakes because our blender has a big button on the top that you hold down to make it blend and they think it’s so fun taking turns pressing it as we blend the batter to a smooth consistency.

Just oatmeal, pumpkin, a couple eggs, maple syrup and of course, pumpkin pie spice is all that’s in them…

Just 5 ingredients and a quick blend in the blender is all it takes to prepare the batter for these Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Blender Pancakes.


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pure pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and coat generously with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, drop 3-4 tablespoons of the batter onto the hot skillet. Use the back of the scoop or a spatula to spread the batter into a circle, if necessary. Cook about 2-3 minutes per side, flipping once, until pancakes start to brown just a little on each side and are cooked all the way through. Remove to a platter or baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining batter into pancakes.
  3. Serve with maple syrup.

  1. I made half with added baking powder and the other half without. The one with was better. I also added milk to thin it out. But taste either way was very good..

  2. Any alternatives to the maple syrup? I’m diabetic so it’s have to be something sugar free.

    1. Hi Sarah! I’m not familiar with sugar free alternatives, but I know there are several sugar free syrups out there that would certainly be worth trying. I hope they turn out great for you!

  3. These were AWESOME!!! I have been waiting all week to make them after getting some homemade pumpkin spice syrup from the local farmers market. Definitely a new household favorite.

    1. Hi Kristy! Absolutely, they just won’t require as much blending. They pancakes will still turn out & taste great. Enjoy!

  4. Hi I didn’t have any maple or honey or any other sweetener so I soaked half a cup of dates then chopped them up and put the water from the soakingand date in the mixture, blended as usual and they were lovely having the added bonus of extra fibre and iron (as date have iron in Them) an added bonus, Invent told my sugar addicted kids there is no sugar or flour so they scoffed them down none the wiser, and I get tocongradulate myself on getting nourishing foodstuff down their throats. I also did the banana version with the same and substitute cinnamon for vanilla bean extract,to die for.Thank for your wonderful recipes that I can tweak to use what’s in my pantry.

  5. Yummy! I did thin them out a bit with milk as some suggested- very good and super easy in the blender thank you!
