These are a great pre-workout meal or during low and moderate intensity workouts. Packed full with beneficial vitamins and minerals as well as complex and simple carbs to fuel your workout. Try a new way to enjoy pumpkin!

Ingredients:

2 cups roasted* or canned pumpkin

2 eggs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup quick oats

1 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning

1/4 teaspoon salt

optional add-ins:

trail mix

slivered or crushed nuts

chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Combine pumpkin, eggs and brown sugar in a large bowl. Whisk until combined.

  2. Add quick oats, all purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie seasoning, and salt. Stir just until evenly combined.

  3. Add extra all-purpose flour if you think they’ll work better in the pan.

  4. Heat up a skillet or medium-sized pan to medium-high heat.

  5. Spray oil on the pan.

  6. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture onto the pan and make sure it is not more than 1/4 inch thick.

  7. Repeat until the pan is full of pancakes leaving room between each pancake so they don’t stick together (they won’t change shape much).

  8. Cover pan with a lid and let cook for 3-4 minutes.

  9. Flip with a flipper and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until the middle looks done (not liquidy).

  10. Repeat for as many pancakes as you’d like to enjoy for that meal/snack. Store the rest in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.

  11. Serve with maple syrup and/or Greek yogurt. If enjoying them during an activity, wait until they cool and place in a reusable bag.
