Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1/2 c pumpkin purée
1/2 ripe banana
1/3 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 c oats
1/2 tbsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt
Optional- 1 scoop protein powder (I like Sun Warrior plant based protein in Natural flavor)
Set aside ~1 cup chocolate chips for topping, along with your favorite fruit, nut butter and/or yogurt
To make the batter, combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a blender.
Heat up pan or skillet to medium heat and lightly coat with oil (I like to use unrefined coconut oil for flavor).
Scoop 1/3 c of pancake batter and pour onto pan. Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips on to pancakes.
Cook until you see pancake batter bubbles then flip!
Cook for another 3-4 min until lightly golden brown on both sides.
Top off with your favorite yogurt, more chocolate chips, nut butter and fresh fruit!
Makes approximately six mini pancakes.
