Ingredients
Vegan Pumpkin Pie Pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cup nut milk (such as unsweetened almond, cashew or coconut)
  • 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® Vegan!
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup

Optional Pumpkin Pie Crumble topping:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 dates, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® Vegan!

Optional Pumpkin Pie syrup:

  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions

  1. In a high-powered blender, add each pancake ingredient in order. Blend for 15-20 seconds until batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a pancake griddle to medium-high, and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter by 1/4 – 1/3 cupfuls. Let cook 3-4 minutes per side. You’ll know it’s time to flip them when small bubbles make their way to the middle of the partly-cooked pancake.
  3. While pancakes are cooking, make topping: place 1/4 cup oats, pecans and cinnamon on a baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 5 minutes, until light brown. Remove and sprinkle dates and vegan spread on baking sheet, mixing all ingredients around with a fork.
  4. To make pumpkin pie syrup, warm maple syrup in a sauce pan. Stir in pumpkin and spice. Pour into a serving vessel.
  5. Serve pancakes with topping and syrup beside. Enjoy your fall breakfast!

Makes 12-14 pancakes.
