Pumpkin pancakes are fabulous at any time of the day, I particularly like them mid morning after a workout. I always feel I deserve a sweet treat after running on the cross trainer or doing spin class and these are one of my favorite things to indulge in. Don’t worry I make them as healthy as possible and have them with fruit, so that I do not undo the work from my exercise 🙂 

How to make Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes

There are two ways you can incorporate pumpkin into your pancake recipe. You can add it into your pancake mix or you can add it as a topping with fruit and syrup. I prefer to add it into my pancake mix.

Easy Pumpkin Pancake Recipe

A healthy pumpkin pancake recipe that is quick to put together in 30 minutes or less

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 300g all-purpose flour
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 200g pumpkin puree (make sure it is pre-cooked)
  • 500ml milk
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice extract (you can use cinnamon if you don't have this)


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and spice extract together in a mixing bowl
  2. In another bowl, using a whisk mix olive oil, puree, milk, butter and eggs together. When this is well mixed add it to the other mixing bowl with the flour etc.
  3. In a oil greased pan, over moderate heat add some pancake mix. The amount you should add is totally up to you and depends what size of pancake you want. It is trial and error and it is hard to get all pancakes the same size but as long as they taste good that is the main thing.
  4. Pancakes should be flipped so that each side can be cooked. Will take roughly 2.5 to 3 minutes for each side to turn brown.
  5. Finally add the pumpkin pancake topping of your choice.
Remember you can eat these all year long if you buy canned pumpkin or if you freeze some of your fresh pumpkin! Why wait until Fall for such a delicious treat.

What I like to add as my Pumpkin Pancake Topping

My easy Pumpkin pancake recipe tastes amazing on it’s own but I like to add some maple syrup and some fruit on top to make them even tastier and healthier. Berries like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries work well. These also look very appealing and if I have guests over they do not stay on the plate too long! 

Of course you can add some canned pumpkin on top or some fresh pumpkin puree. It is so easy to cook pumpkin and make puree using homegrown pumpkins! Why not add some puree on top as well as in the mix!

Some people like fresh cream or custard with pancakes especially if they are having them as a snack. Fresh cream and fresh fruit really is the perfect combination for a treat. Taste of Home loves adding cinnamon-apple as a topping. I always associate cinnamon and apple with tart or crumble so I am pretty sure it will work with pancakes. When I was a teen I used to treat myself to apple pancakes and cream every weekend. Basically it was a pancake slider with apples and cream in between; goodness knows how I stayed so skinny, but they were absolutely amazing.
