Flourless Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes {Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Vegan}

flourless pumpkin oat blender pancakes

I’ve been enjoying these Flourless Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes every Sunday for the past few weeks. J and I like to go for a long run together Sunday morning. And by together I mean we start at the same pace and after a couple minutes he is way ahead of me until he becomes a dot in the faraway distance. I am more of a “I-want-to-enjoy-my-Sunday-morning-jog-and-smell-the-roses” kind of runner and he is a “I-wanna-run-this-10-k-in-under-55-minutes” kind of runner. I blame it on his Belgian height and super long legs. I never realized my 5’6 frame made me short until I moved to Belgium and everybody was wayyy taller than me. Long legs or otherwise, I love running and I looove these Flourless Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes.

AND my favourite part of Sunday morning, other than our morning runs, is enjoying these Flourless Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes together. I love making them when we get back for a quick, tasty, hearty, and pumpkin-filled Brunch (#brunchisthebestmealoftheday). These pancakes are as easy as throwing everything in your blender and watching it whirl until you have a creamy, smooth pancake batter. (*Note: They can also be made in a bowl with an immersion blender.)

Every Sunday should be #PancakeSunday am I right?

The Pumpkin Oat Pancakes are:

Pumpkinny (yes, that is a new word. @OxfordDictionary)



The perfect amount of fluffy

and sweet.

These Flourless Pumpkin Oat Pancakes taste amazing with some pecans sprinkled on top (Pecans and Pumpkin are hands down my new favourite combination of the season. Helloooo Maple Pecan Pumpkin Crumble Bread). And, of course, these Flourless Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes deserve to be smothered in Maple Syrup.

Vegan Pumpkin-Oat Blender Pancakes

  • Author: Ceara
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 pancakes 1x


These Pumpkin-Oat Blender Pancakes are whipped up in five minutes in the blender. They contain an entire 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree and are made with just oats! These Healthy Pumpkin-Oat Blender Pancakes are flour free, oil free, gluten free, refined sugar free, egg free, dairy free and vegan! They make the perfect quick, healthy morning breakfast!


  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed + 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar*
  • 1 cup almond milk*
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping tbsp maple syrup, agave syrup or honey*
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups oats

For Cooking

  • Non-stick cooking spray, coconut oil or vegan buttery type spread


  1. Place ground flax seed and water in blender, swirl it around and let it sit for a couple minutes it becomes a thick, goopy, egg-like texture.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend in the blender until the oats are dissolved and a smooth pancake batter is formed. Add a bit of milk, by the tbsp, if the batter is too thick. If it is too thin, leave it to thicken for a couple of minutes.
  3. Preheat stove and greased skillet on a medium high heat. Test the pan by dropping a couple drops of water on the skillet. When the water sizzles the pan is hot enough.
  4. Using a tbsp, scoop and pour batter (2 tbsp for each pancake) onto the hot, oiled pan. Do not exceed two tbsp or your pancakes will not be as fluffy.
  5. Cook for a couple minutes on the first side. The pancakes are ready to be flipped by they begin to bubble around the edges.
  6. Flip and cook for just less than a minute on the other side.
  7. Serve with crumbled pecans and smother with maple syrup or toppings of choice!


These Pumpkin-Oat Blender Pancakes can be made in a blender or in a large mixing bowl with an immersion blender.
Due to the oats, the pancake batter does thicken as it sits. While cooking the pancakes be sure to add a bit of milk, by the tbsp, to maintain a thick yet pour-able pancake batter.
These pancakes can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days in a sealed container or in the freezer for up to two weeks. Reheat pancakes in the toaster or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Apple Cider Vinegar can be replaced with White Vinegar
Almond Milk can be replaced with any non-dairy milk.
Honey is not for strict vegans.
Make sure your baking powder and oats are certified gluten free if necessary!

  3. Made this for dinner last night and they were perfect! I’ve been making similar pancakes but with banana almost one a week lately, and this was a great way to mix it up, especially as we get into those fall flavors. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Hello, was laughing a lot from your intro and couldn’t wait to see what the pancake entails… It’s a definite must try pancake recipe and I am sure I would love it….
    Someone must have asked this question already and I can’t seem to find it because of the numerous comments Pls can I substitute the pumpkin puree with banana, it’s difficult finding them here in my country

  5. These are so good! Can’t have wheat, corn or dairy so nice to have a warm breakfast with substance.

  6. Can you use a whole egg or chia seed vs the flax….I seem to have an issue with flax seed.
    Also can you just add more water instead of more milk to thin out the batter??

  7. I was just given this lovely recipe by my nutritionist to try as part of my very strict diet, and I had a question: have you ever tried to make these into muffins? Mornings are mayhem at my house and I’d love to be able to make a batch of something portable and grab-and-go that still meets my restrictions. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Misha,

      I am happy to hear your nutritionist gave you this recipe! I have never tried making these into muffins. I do have a lot of healthy muffins recipes (some of which are made without any flour). My favorite are my banana chocolate muffins made with oat and almond flour.

      Enjoy! πŸ™‚

  8. Hey! This recipe looks amazing! I’m on a sugar cleanse right now just for a couple weeks and was wondering if there was a way to swap the honey/maple syrup for stevia or xylitol?


    1. I think that the stevia or xylitol sub would work just fine! Make sure to add just a bit of stevia since it is sweeter than regular sugar πŸ™‚

    1. <3 Thank you for the lovely feedback and sharing your awesome photo on my facebook page! :) Happy everyone enjoyed the pancakes!

  9. These pancakes are AMAZING!!!!! I know it’s summer (which means 100 degree weather for TX) but when I saw this I couldn’t resist or wait!! My son and I loved these!!!

  10. Ahhh! I love love LOVE these pancakes! Fluffy and soft, not goopy or gummy. Perfectly sweet. A new staple meal for me! And such a forgiving recipe. I used quick-cooking GF oats and sweet potato puree instead of regular and pumpkin, and added a few handfuls of spinach to the mix along with ground cloves and stevia. Absolutely lovely. Especially when dotted with dark chocolate chunks πŸ˜‰ Bravo for creating this fab recipe!

  11. I am sorry if this has been asked and answered but there are so many comments to review to see if this is so. I wanted to know if you have the nutrition info for a serving of these pancakes. Also can they be frozen easily ?

    1. No problem at all, Jenifer! I have never frozen these pancakes before but think they would freeze well in an airtight Ziploc bag. I have kept them in the fridge until the next day and find they reheat beautifully in the microwave after a couple of seconds! They are the absolute best fresh though. As for the nutritional info – I don’t have it off hand but if you plug the ingredients into this website –> http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php the nutritional info will come up! Thanks and let us know how they turn out πŸ™‚ Happy Pancake-ing!

  12. I saw your comment at the end of the recipe that you can substitute any non-dairy milk but can I also use regular milk 1 to 1? And quick oats or old fashioned? With 2 young kids this is exactly the kind of “come together quick” breakfast recipe I need more of in my repertoire! Thanks!

    1. Yes, I think you should be able to use regular milk 1 to 1! And I used old fashioned oats but I’m pretty sure that quick oats would also work well! Let me know how your pancakes turn out – I hope you and your family love them!

  13. just made these today for breakfast! They were really good, easy to make and cook, however I probably added a total of 1/2-3/4 cup milk extra because it was so thick!

    I ate them with peanut butter, pecans, and the same kirkland maple syrup. Delicious! I have enough for 3 days! =)

    1. So happy you enjoyed them! It’s normal to have to add in some extra milk – the oats make the pancakes super thick and they tend to thicken up while cooking the pancakes as well! Your toppings sound absolutely delicious!

      1. Could you just substitute a whole egg for the flax egg….or even use chia instead of flax. Flax doesn’t really agree with me

        And can you just add more water to the batter vs more milk??

  14. hi ceara
    I am old enough to be your mother and therefore come from a different generation. that said, I like to keep current with the times in all areas of my life. I know most people your age read blogs for everything- decorating, fitness, traveling- you name it! and cooking is no exception. so more and more, I find myself reading blogs instead of looking through cookbooks for recipes. I am a vegetarian (which conversely is not something I recently started to stay current. I have been primarily vegetarian for 40 years, so one could say I am old school I suppose!)
    anyway, I am writing to tell you how much I enjoyed making the pancakes. very easy and healthy! I tweeked the recope just a bit by adding the following items: cocoa nibs, coconut flakes, walnuts or almonds- sort of a pancake smorgasbord -I ended up with about 6 different choices!
    I will definitely add your blog to my recipes bookmark and try more of your recipes in the future.
    happy holiday season!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment, Melissa! Your kind words mean so much to me! You being a vegetarian for 40 years is very inspiring! I am so happy that you enjoyed the recipe, it has become a regular in our home πŸ™‚ I love your addition of cocoa nibs, coconut flakes, walnuts and almonds – I have to try something similar next Sunday because a pancake smorgasbord sounds absolutely wonderful. I hope you enjoy my future recipes just as much! All the best to you as well over the holiday season!

  15. Gosh, I haven’t had pancakes in awhile, but these are the most delicious pancakes ever! I’ve never tried blender pancakes, what a great way to mix everything up quickly! I have winter squashes to use up! I’m eyeing on pumpkin beers right now…and salted caramel chocolate stout beers…omg…pumpkins are everywhere!

  16. Making these as I write this. Can’t wait to eat! But I’m having some trouble getting the middle to cook through. Anyone else experience this? What can I do to solve?

    1. Hi Doug! So happy to hear you are trying the pancakes! You could be running into that problem is the batter is too thick (the oats thicken up the batter as it sits). Adding a bit of almond milk to the batter should help. I find that the pancakes work best if you do not exceed using more than 2 tbsp of pancake batter. Make sure to cook them until the bubble around the edges before flipping them. Hope this helps!! Happy pancake-ing!

  17. I always try to run fast so I can just get the run over with, haha! Maybe I need to slow down and smell the roses more often! I love everything about these pancakes! The pumpkin flavor is perfect and that is awesome that you can make them in a blender, and they are made of oats! I need to try these because I’m a pancake addict πŸ™‚

  18. I just love me some oatmeal blender pancakes, it’s the best thing to ever happen to me! Now I can add pumpkin to them yum! I see you still have your Costco bag of goodies, I hope you got two jars of that syrup because those pancakes looked drenched in maple goodness πŸ™‚

  19. YUM!! These look amazingly delicious!! They’re gluten free, sugar free and vegan??? Talk about a triple win!! I need these in my life! #bestbreakfastever πŸ™‚ Gotta LOVE pumpkin this time of year, am I right??

  20. Oooh so yummy Ceara! They have a great color too. It’s hard to believe that they are so healthy and wholesome too – it’s basically the perfect excuse to eat pancakes. I need you to make me breakfast on Sundays…I’ve had this weird obsession recently with raw oats?! Like seriously, I keep having cravings for raw oats and peanut butter or banana or something like that…so naturally, my breakfasts have been pretty shameful of late haha! I need some healthy pumpkin pancakes in my life <3

    1. Thanks Tash! Hehe, I love any excuse to eat pancakes πŸ™‚ I have a bit of an obsession with raw oats as well! I love sticking raw oats in my smoothies!

  21. Holy smokes, these look AMAZING! I’m with ya on the running. I’m not the kind of person who enjoys dying during my runs and would rather go at my own pace! I’m all of 5’3, so 5’6 is a dream height for me hahah ;).

    Great recipe and photos!

    1. Thanks Christine πŸ™‚ Haha, glad to know there are other runners out there who like to “smell the roses” πŸ˜€

  22. Yes to pancake Sundays and these pumpkin pancakes πŸ™‚ I have never tried blender pancakes and can’t wait to now. Love all the pumpkin and spices and even better how healthy they are. They sound fantastice – pinning πŸ™‚

  23. I love pancakes, but the traditional kind are so bad for you (more like cake….right) that I don’t let myself indulge. I LOVE your version, no flour, no refined sugar and so many good for you ingredients. I love the combination of breakfast breads and pecans as well, especially with the pumpkin like this wonderful recipe calls for. I can’t wait to give these a whirl. Sympathize with your “short” issue, but at 5’6′ you are tall to me! haha. I’m under 5’4′, barely 5’3′, wish I was just a few inches taller. Loved loved loved Belgium when I visited about 10 years ago, the people were so nice and helpful and such a beautiful place to visit.

    1. I know! That is exactly what I was thinking when I made these pancakes! I want them to taste like the traditional ones but without all the refined flour, oil and sugar πŸ™‚ Thanks for the kind words Laura!!

  24. Sounds like you have the perfect Sunday morning run and breakfast, Ceara! And I feel ya about being short! I’m only 5’4 and my husband is 6 feet…a bit of a height difference there! πŸ™‚ I’m loving these blender pancakes! Such a fantastic idea to make them in the blender! Can’t wait to try these out. Pinned!

    1. Thanks Gayle! And hehe, glad to know you get the height difference thing too! You and your hubby must make an adorable couple!!!

  25. These sound utterly delicious! I love making pancakes on the weekends, though if the batter is made ahead of time, I guess I could make some throughout the week as well. I love topping my pancakes with PB and banana slices. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Topping Pancakes with PB and banana slices sounds amazing Cara!! πŸ™‚ I often make these pancakes in advance and pop them in the microwave or toaster during the weekend for easy pancakes breakies πŸ™‚

  26. Hi Ceara (love your name btw!)
    I’m so glad I came across your blog. Such lovely recipes πŸ™‚ Just pinned a couple.
    I’m all for #Pancakesunday. I think I’ll have to teach my husband to start making these for me.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Vanessa for the compliments and the pins! I am so happy I came across your blog as well! I was seriously in vegan cheesecake heaven – cannot wait to try some of your recipes! πŸ™‚
