Golden Pumpkin Blender Pancakes with Vitamix
*serves 1-2 people
1 cup rolled raw GF Oats OR 3/4 cup Oat flour
1 cup Pumpkin Purée
2 tsp Live 24k Golden Fuel
2 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted + more for griddle
1 large Egg OR 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water, refrigerate for 15 min.)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt
For Pumpkin-Maple Syrup (Optional)
1/2 cup Pumpkin Purée
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1. Starting with wet ingredients, place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth and consistent.
2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat, and lightly grease pan with a dab of coconut oil. Make sure pan is fully heated, then pour a loaded spoonful of batter onto the griddle to make each pancake (should be about 3-4" in diameter). Let pancakes cook for about 1.5-2 minutes until edges are set and bottom is golden, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
*TIP: these pancakes cook quicker on the outside than the inside, so to avoid undercooked batter on the inside, take it easy on the heat and be patient with the time it takes to cook each side. Cranking up the heat wont make it go any faster!
3. For the Pumpkin Maple Syrup: Heat all ingredients over low heat until syrup simmers. Continually stir for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat.
4. Pile up your golden pumpkin pancakes, then top with your pumpkin maple syrup and whatever toppings you prefer. Serve!
