Single Serving Blender Pumpkin Pancakes {gluten and refined sugar free}

Ah, pumpkin season. Probably my favorite season of all.

I've already made several batches of pumpkin pancakes in the last month. These are my staple pancakes, but I opted for an easy recipe for one just to try something quick.


All you do is add all the ingredients to your blender, blend until smooth, add 3 dollops of batter on your griddle, and you'll have pancakes in about 10 minutes.


The oats kept me feeling full and satisfied for several hours and powered me through an intense workout.

I'm actually starting a "Six Weeks Challenge" at my local fitness studio. The goal is to workout at least 4 times per week at the studio and record your diet. My personal goal is to work out at least 5 days per week. I really notice a difference in my body and fitness level if I go less than 5 times per week for an extended time. But everyone is different and the key is to do what works for you. I also recommend using the free app Lose It to record your food. It really helps when you hold yourself accountable and see what you're actually eating each day. I have made a lot of progress in the last few weeks by recording my meals. The Six Weeks Challenge is just a more fun, group oriented way to kick start a goal.

That's just some lifestyle advice based on my experience, but here's the recipe!

Single Serving Blender Pumpkin Pancakes {gluten and refined sugar free}


Ingredients
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (quick oats are fine too)
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp Greek yogurt

Directions
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Scoop 3 even sized dollops of batter onto a preheated griddle.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side until golden, then flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
Top with pure maple syrup, nut butter, or jam and enjoy!
