Pumpkin Yogurt Pancakes

Fall season is upon us and we are already starting to feel it in Seattle. Since the smoke came (and went!) we have had cloudy skies and chilly temps. Not that I’m complaining or anything…I love a good run in 60 degree weather and I own way too many jackets. Fall weather also means Fall food. You know the drill, love it or hate it, there is going to be pumpkin spice everything. From waffles to coffee I’m all for it, but I hate when these goods don’t have actual pumpkin in them! To solve that I made some three-ingredient pumpkin yogurt waffles using Noosa yogurt that are so quick to make after a long run. Drizzled in almond butter and pumpkin seeds you will not regret making these easy pancakes.

I know that Noosa yogurt does have a little bit of sugar in it but I realize that only a little of it is added cane sugar. Plus normal pancakes have way more than this so don’t feel guilty. Especially since the body does need some sugar after exercise to rebuild glycogen in the muscles. I’m a big fan of the Noosa brand because they are sustainable and use fresh dairy. “Farm to fridge” is their slogan. I’m pretty strict when it comes to where I source my dairy and I trust the Noosa brand. I actually stay away from most dairy except yogurt so I tend to be careful in that area. Enough talk, onto the pancakes!

Pumpkin Yogurt Pancakes:

  • 1 tub Pumpkin Noosa yogurt
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 3-5 tbsp of unsweetened vanilla almond milk depending on your blender
  • A little cinnamon if you desire
  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until oats are incorporated. If too thick or thin, add oats or almond milk accordingly.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-low heat and melt a little coconut oil.
  3. Pour pancakes directly onto the skillet into 3-inch rounds
  4. Cook about 2-4 minutes per side but be careful, these burn easily. Cooking until they flip without any trouble. They will brown quite a bit.
  5. Transfer onto a plate and microwave for 30-45 seconds
  6. Serve with desired toppings and enjoy! Tag me on instagram @tacosandtempos if you make these!
