These pancakes don’t exactly taste like pancakes, but they’re delicious nonetheless! The heat of the skillet melts the banana, making these babies sweet and delicious. I melted some frozen blueberries in the microwave and mixed with about 2 teaspoons agave for a delicious and healthy syrup! This recipe has been modified this recipe from here, and it if fast, easy, and delicious.

Makes 14 small/medium pancakes.

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg replacer (I used 1/2 banana. You can use a flax egg* or Ener-G egg replacer too)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Optional: strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, blueberries (what I used), or anything else you’d like!

1. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl

2. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

3. Mix wet and dry together

4. Preheat a medium-sized skillet or pan, and spray with non-stick spray

5. Pour three 1/4 cup sized pancakes into pan and add your add-ins

6. Flip when bubbles appear around edges

* A flax egg can be made out of mixing 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons water. Let it sit until it reaches the consistency of an egg. Equal to one medium/large egg.

I did it guys. After several days searching for the perfect pumpkin cookie recipe, I decided to take the next step towards ultimate bloggette-ness and make my own recipe, from scratch.

Now, I am not going to call these cookies. I am not going to call these muffins. Or biscuits, or scones, or anything else baked-goods related. I’m not really sure what they are to be honest… but I do know that I like them!

Once I come up with a cute name for them, I’m going to make them more often with all different flavours and styles for you lovely people! Maybe this is the start of something wonderful 🙂

Anyways, here’s the recipe!


  • 1 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sucanat
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (or more if needed)
  • 2 tbsp Tazo chai concentrate
  • a capful of vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 flax egg: 1tbsp ground flax absorbed by 3 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredient in separate bowl, and then mix together. Use a mini icecream scoop or a 15 mL measuring spoon and scoop onto lined cookie sheet. Press down with a fork or leave in ball form. Makes 18 whatever you want to call them’s. 🙂
These little balls of goodness have the benefits of whole grains, flax seeds, fruits, and deliciousness in a soft, chewy, light and gooey ball of yum!
