Preparation 10 min Cook Time 15 min


  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour (or oats ground in a food processor or in a coffee grinder)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon organic dark brown sugar/cane sugar/coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree learn how to make fresh pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon melted vegan butter
  • 1 cup vegan buttermilk - 1 cup Silk Almondmilk Original + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, mixed together
  • vegan butter or coconut oil, to brush griddle

Salted Caramel Maple Syrup

  • 3 tablespoons vegan caramel sauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  1. In a large bowl, mix the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and the ginger, ground cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. Add in the cane sugar, molasses, pumpkin puree, vegan butter and the vegan buttermilk.
  3. Whisk together until just combined. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat a griddle over high heat. Brush griddle with more vegan butter or coconut oil.
  5. Pour the batter into a liquid measuring cup, then pour about ¼ or 1/3 cup's worth for one pancake. I liked 1/3 cup but it depends on how fluffy you want your pancakes. Wait until some bubbles start to form. Allow to cook for 2 more minutes and then flip the pancakes over. Cook for about 3 more minutes on over side until batter is cooked through.
  6. Serve pancakes hot and drizzle maple syrup on top.

Recipe Notes

  1. This recipe is vegan and gluten free.
    These pancakes freeze very well. Store these pancakes stacked with wax or parchment paper in between each one in an airtight tupperware container in the fridge. If freezing, store them in a freezer-safe zipped bag with wax or parchment paper in between each other. Store them flat to freeze. They last very long in the freezer!
