Pumpkin Spice Pancakes (sans junk)

healthy no sugar added pumpkin pancakes for kids family
This weekend, we had family over. The little man got to go trick-or-treating (sort of), and also started to recover from a really nasty cold. We all woke up on Sunday morning, and our usual family ritual is to go out to breakfast – eggs, grits, pancakes…the whole deal. But it was pouring down rain. So I decided to make my own pancake feast.

These pumpkin pancakes have ZERO sugar added. They are fluffy and delicious, and as always, a little sneaky.

Imagine regular pumpkin pancakes, but replace the sugar with fruit, and pump up the eggs so you can put as little flour as possible. Oh, and throw in some healthy oats and chia seeds for good measure.


What You Need

  • Three RIPE Bananas. Unripe bananas will make you sad, promise.
  • 5 Eggs.
  • 1/4 Cup Cream Cheese. Just for fun.
  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds.
  • 1/2 Cup Oatmeal Cereal. That’s the stuff you buy on the baby isle that is basically oats, already ground up. If you don’t have this, just grind up some oats in a coffee grinder or dry food processor first.
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla.
  • 1 Can Pumpkin.
  • 1 Cup Flour. Use whole wheat if you have it, because what reason do you have not to?
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda.
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder.
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice. This is just a combo of things like ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves…so if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, don’t fret, just give a little shake of the above spices instead.
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon. Gotta have lots of cinnamon.
