Healthy and delicious, oil-free and vegan pumpkin pancakes that are fluffy, tender and perfect for enjoying a warm and comforting Fall breakfast.



  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (110 g)
  • ½ cup plant-based milk of choice (120 ml)
  • 23 tablespoons maple syrup, to taste (3045 g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  • 1 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour (170 g)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda 
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (15 ml)
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Whisk together the milk, maple syrup, vinegar and pumpkin (and vanilla, if using) in a mixing bowl until fully combined.
  2. Add the the rest of the ingredients and fold together until all the flour is wetted. Once the flour is incorporated, stop mixing to avoid over mixing the batter.
  3. Let the batter rest while you heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the preheated pan.
  5. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown and appear firm and dry.
  6. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. 
  7. Repeat until you’ve used all the batter.
  8. Serve immediately. For a special breakfast, serve with maple syrup, vegan whipped cream and pumpkin seeds.
