On that note and since pumpkin season is here you must try out my very popular pumpkin cookies. If you are into baking mode then these pumpkin brownies are absolutely a winner. My vegan pumpkin muffins are our favorite treat.

Ingredients for healthy vegan pumpkin pancakes
100% Whole wheat flour
Pumpkin pie spice
I have used these easily available ingredients which you may buy from any local grocery store. Its an easy and simple pancake recipe for your family to enjoy.
Flaxmeal – it’s a great egg replacer and add healthy fats along with fiber. The whole ground brown flaxmeal works great here.
Plant milk – any dairy free milk is fine in this recipe. To make it absolutely nut free you may use oat milk which adds creaminess to its batter.
Maple syrup – it’s a healthier sweetener comparatively. Also, it provides a nice caramelized flavor to it.
Whole wheat flour – it has more fiber and is less processed. Therefore, it’s a complex carbohydrate which works great in these healthy pumpkin pancakes.
Pumpkin puree – I used canned puree but you may use your own homemade one as well.
Hempseeds – this adds protein and fiber making it healthier and more desirable.
Pumpkin pie spice – its easily available everywhere and adds a nice Fall flavor here.
You may substitute flaxmeal and maple syrup with 2 large mashed bananas. Make sure they are ripe but not brown.

How to make Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes
Firstly, I soaked flaxmeal in a large mixing bowl until it was thick and jelly like consistency.
Secondly, I added dairy free milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract and maple syrup to it. Then, I mixed it and kept it aside.
Next, I added rest of the dry ingredients to it and whipped it into a soft batter.
Thereafter, I heated a griddle/nonstick pan and greased it with a cooking spray.
Afterwards, I poured ¼ cup of the batter on the warm pan and shaped it into round with the back of a spoon.
Then, I let it cook until the edges started to dry up a bit.
Next, with the help of a flat spatula, I gently flipped it to the other side and let it cook again until it was golden brown in color and dry.
Lastly, I served them on a plate along with the toppings.
We all enjoyed our family breakfast thoroughly over the weekend.
I personally topped it with lots of fruits, nuts and seeds.
For kids, they loved it with drizzling maple syrup.
My husband enjoyed it with some vegan whipped cream along with nuts and seeds.
Therefore, you may simply top it with anything and enjoy it heartily.
- It is important that the flaxmeal soaks well. You may also soak it overnight in the refrigerator. But make sure to bring it to room temperature before using it in this recipe.
- Ideally, I like to use round shaped cutter on my pan and then I pour my batter for a perfect round shape.
- Most importantly, cook on one side properly until net like bubbles form. After flipping cook again for a while like 4-5 minutes. Once the pancake releases from the pan make sure to touch the round edges to the hot pan/griddle so that its cooked from all sides.
They taste best when served immediately. However, refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for about 2 weeks. Warm it up in microwave for 10-15 seconds or in toaster oven for 5 minutes.
These are high on carbohydrates but since I used whole wheat flour it consists of good carbohydrates. It has seasonal pumpkin with nutritional benefits along with flaxmeal and hempseeds. Overall, it’s a healthy breakfast recipe but if you are on a weight loss plan then make sure to stick to the servings. Moreover, the nutritional information would vary depending on your choice of toppings.
These are already thick and fluffy because I made its batter with dairy free milk instead of water. Moreover, the most important thing to note about a fluffier pancake is the thickness of its batter. I made this batter thick and soft.
Therefore, please follow the measurements as mentioned in the recipe to get the fluffiest and the best pumpkin pancakes.
