Pumpkin Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

Who’s stoked for Thanksgiving?! *raises pie fork in the air* I have a Thanksgiving-friendly pumpkin breakfast recipe for you today.

The morning of a holiday, I like to have a protein-heavy breakfast. I feel more satisfied, and also prefer enjoying a healthy meal before the avalanche of sweets and heavy foods occurs. 

Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes

These pumpkin pancakes are basically everything you could wish for in a healthy breakfast: protein, smart carbs, healthy fats, filling fiber, and a dose of nutrients. They have great staying power, and are a quick “blend and cook” kinda breakfast.

I took my beloved banana-egg-oat pancakes and fall-ified them with some pumpkin and spices, natch.

  10. Sara @ Oats & Rows on November 23, 2015 at 8:53 am

    UGH I’m a sucker for all things pancakes, but one of my all time favorites are these raspberry walnut pancakes from a Charlotte spot called Toast. The batter is made with mashed raspberries!

      that sounds amazing!

  11. Lindsey @ Simply Lindsey on November 23, 2015 at 9:29 am

  12. Amy S on November 23, 2015 at 11:41 am

    Love the idea of having such a healthy/protein-packed breakfast on the morning of a holiday! These look delicious.

    The dessert I’m most looking forward to is my husband’s homemade pies. He makes the most amazing berry pies and and apple pies (the apple pie he makes has whole wheat crust!) πŸ˜€

  13. Georgia Mae on November 23, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    Wows those look amazing! I’m a pancake junkie. I currently have Red velvet pancake mix, pumpkin pancake mix, protein pancake mix, blueberry pancake mix, and chocolate! I may have to make these on a weekend morning when I make time to devote to a from-scratch recipe.

  14. Jan Ramsey Brick on November 24, 2015 at 11:41 am

    Those look so yummy! Must make soon!! πŸ™‚

  15. Kim M. on November 24, 2015 at 12:58 pm

    These were great! I happened to have the week off work and everything on hand, so I made them today and yesterday–first topped with cottage cheese and pomegranate seeds and then with AB and pomegranate seeds. Both excellent. Thanks!

  16. The Holistic Chick on October 23, 2016 at 10:13 am

    They were delicious! My teenage boys even liked them…with some dark chocolate chips of course πŸ™‚
