Pumpkin Blueberry Pancake Board

Who doesn’t love a warm and cozy breakfast on a fall morning? Especially if you’re trying to balance the indulgences of the season with healthier choices across the board (literally), then this recipe is for you. Blueberries and pancakes are a match made in heaven, but add pumpkin into the mix and you have a fall brunch game-changer.

Ingredients

Pumpkin Pancakes

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pancake Board

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1 large apple, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup warmed maple syrup

Preparation

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the pumpkin puree, eggs, almond milk, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, until just combined, and be careful not to overmix. Add 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk if the batter appears too thick.
  4. Heat a greased skillet. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop up the batter and pour it into the pan.
  5. Let cook on the griddle or pan until you start to see little bubbles forming on the side and then flip. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Pancake Board

  1. Lay pancakes in a small group on large cutting board or serving platter.
  2. Rinse blueberries and place them in a small dish on board. Slice apple and banana and fan out in different sections of the platter.
  3. Place walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and maple syrup in small individual dishes and arrange on or around board.

Notes

Substitute almonds or pecans for walnuts if desired.
