How to make pumpkin pancakes recipe
I like making these pumpkin pancakes from scratch using whole ingredients.
- This pumpkin pancakes recipe uses whole buckwheat groats that you will blend into flour. You can sieve the flour, but that's not necessary. These buckwheat pancakes will be generous, dense, and filling.
- We are using some flaxseed to add some omega 3 and proteins to these pumpkin pancakes.
- I use roasted pumpkin instead of store-bought puree.
- If you have a coffee grinder or just using your blender, blend some cinnamon sticks then sieve. You'll never use a store-bought cinnamon powder again! The cinnamon spice is sweet and smells fresh and intense.
- You can also use freshly grounded nutmeg.
- This pumpkin pancakes recipe is sugar-free, so you'll add dates to bring sweetness. You can substitute them with raisins or bananas.
- In a bowl, mix well the blended buckwheat, grounded flaxseeds, salt, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, and spices.
- In your blender, blend the pumpkin, dates, vinegar, oil, fresh ginger, turmeric, and milk. Make sure to use coconut milk to have that cake texture.
- Pour the liquid mix on the flour and whisk together.
- Add some more milk if the batter is too thick. Note that buckwheat will soak up the liquid more than wheat flour.
- Cook on a heated skillet or pan. If you are not using a non-stick pan then grease the pan before adding the batter.
These pumpkin pancakes are super delicious, the reason why you should make a batch and store some for future days.
To reheat these buckwheat pancakes place on a baking sheet and turn your oven to 100°, let the pancakes warm up for about 10mins.

- Some dates are more sugared than others, reduce the amount if using Medjool dates for example.
- Don't make a thin batter for better results
- Don't cook these pumpkin pancakes on high heat. They'll burn easily and will not cook in the center
- If using coconut milk, omit the oil as coconut milk is generally high in fat.
- Coconut milk gives these pumpkin pancakes a cake texture, I recommend it.
- Make your cinnamon powder in advance to reduce you a lot of work. Store the freshly grounded cinnamon spice in an air-tight container
- The same thing with flax seeds, blend about 3 tablespoons and save them in your fridge. Add grounded flax into your smoothies, pancakes, yogurts, or just have a tablespoon like that.
