Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes.

Every Saturday morning, I wake up with the same question – what do you want for breakfast?  Casey always contently shrugs his shoulders and says, I don’t care, I’m fine with just oats.  But really, I am only asking because I am hoping that he’ll actually answer with what I want for breakfast.  I just don’t want to be the one to suggest it.  Does anyone else do this?

I don’t care that they take quite a bit longer than a bowl of cereal, and they involve pulling 20 ingredients out of my cabinets.

The end result is more than worth it.  I have never once regretted a pancake breakfast.

These are a relatively healthy version of a traditionally unhealthy breakfast treat.  In addition to being vegan, the pumpkin swaps in for traditional oils and butters, helping lighten them up a bit.  I added a bit of maple syrup for sweetness, but not too much.  Mostly just because I planned to drown them in maple syrup afterward.  You know how it goes.

Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes

by Emily Malone

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2.5 cups almond (or other non-dairy) milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix to combine.  In a separate small dish, combine the ground flax with 3 tablespoon water to create a "flax egg." Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes and thicken.  One the "egg" has thickened, combine with the rest of the wet ingredients – whisk to combine.

Preheat a large non-stick skillet on your stovetop. Add the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix together just until combined. Pancake batter should be relatively drippy. Pumpkin naturally makes this a bit thicker, but if it’s still too thick to easily pour, slowly mix in an extra 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk.

Once the skillet is hot, ladle about 1/4 cup of batter at a time to create each pancake. Let it cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface – then flip and cook for another minute or two.

If pancakes start getting too dark, adjust the heat as necessary.

Serve immediately and top with all your favorite fixings!

I’m sorry, can we talk about this glorious pancake stack?  I actually had Casey takeover pancake flipping so I could grab my camera, and when I came back a few minutes later, he was building this masterpiece.  It reminds me of something out of a children’s book.  Remember the one about it raining pancakes or something?  And then the whole town had to get together and eat the giant pancake?  I digress.

Pancakes really need no alterations – they are delicious year-round.  But the addition of pumpkin and pie spices here really make this feel like a special fall treat.  I topped mine with raspberries because I am experiencing some seasonal confusion.  It was still delicious!

A great way to fuel up for a weekend spent at a pumpkin patch, doing a long run, going for a family hike, or whatever exciting adventures you have planned.

It is also baby tested and approved.  I tore one of the pancakes up and offered it to Cullen for breakfast.  He was hesitant at first – mostly because he hasn’t really had much bread yet – but he was quickly grabbing at it with both hands.

Eating these in front of a fireplace is optional, but highly recommended.

A happy fall to you all – enjoy!

I’ve always loved pumpkin pancakes. We never made them at home (blueberry, raspberry, or banana tended to be the norm) but I’d find them seasonally in restaurants and oh wow, love.

I bought a griddle a few months ago for some pancake (or french toast) breakfasts but haven’t had time to break it out yet. Hopefully very soon because I’m definitely craving them now!


Alexis @ Hummusapien     at 6:16 am

Mmmmm I was excited for you to post this pancake recipe and even more excited to find out that they’re pumpkin! Do you think I could do white whole wheat flour instead of regular whole wheat? Thanks!

Don’t know why not!


Alex @ Raw Recovery     at 10:03 am

I’m a sucker for pumpkin pancakes. There is just something about them that is irresistible! Especially with some walnuts on top :)


Cher @ Weddicted     at 5:40 am

Sigh – yet another thing my husband wouldn’t touch, lol. I’ll have to make these on a morning when he’s not here and have my sister over :)

These are definitely going to be made on Saturday morning, I can’t wait! And Cullen looks so adorable.

Just curious, have you recently put new advert slots into your blog? I have only just noticed them and wondered whether they were from my computer/google or from your page?


Emily Malone Reply:

I had to move them around for a new advertising agreement. They aren’t new ads, but they are in new places on the site! Hope they aren’t annoying.


Charlie (the runner beans) Reply:

No not at all. Always scares me a little that Google can target me so well with adverts (**New kitchenaid!**)

These sound incredible! Question about the spices, though: I don’t have all of those spices individually, but I do have pumpkin pie spice. Do you think I could sub pumpkin pie spice for the spices listed? And if so, do you have a measurement recommendation?


Emily @ www.main-eats.com     at 1:04 pm

Wow-simply amazing!!! Do Bethany-I bet pumpkin pie spice would work perfectly!


Shana     at 4:22 am

I love the combination of pumpkin and berries. I eat them together in oats, parfaits, and even smoothies. Pumpkin and blackberries are especially delicious.


Nina     at 7:31 am

I have no idea what I did wrong, usually baking comes pretty naturally to me, but I could NOT get these to cook properly. The outside would look great but the inside was still raw. I tried turning down the heat but that didn’t work either (I never got any bubbles regardless of the heat)
I made one simple change – I used one cup ww flour and one cup white flour as I only had one cup of ww flour and it was a hard ww flour.
Any thoughts on what went wrong?


Anne Gubbins Reply:

I had the same problem so I upped the flour amount to 3 cups and it seemed to be better. (I use whole wheat pastry flour.)


Nikki     at 7:23 am

Yum! Definitely making next weekend.

My Saturday (and Sunday) ritual is the same with my man. My asking is really just a courtesy… :) You’re not alone!


lauren     at 11:32 am

The only spices I had were cinnamon and nutmeg, so I just added a little extra cinnamon, vanilla extract and brown sugar. DELICIOUS!! So good for my first try! I served them with sliced almonds and blackberries and my boyfriend had his with peanut butter and bananas and we both loved them! THANKS :)

The point is how to use it, not how large it looks. And perhaps,
like most men, you’re uncertain and scared about the possibilities of choosing methods that are not safe and effective.
Just the suggestion of a penis fracture might be enough to keep
a grown man up at night, and fortunately, it rarely happens; but yes,
the penis can break, given the right circumstances and a lot of
