Prep: 20 mins – Cook: 20 mins – Total: 40 mins
- 2 cups (480) mL full-fat oat milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups (250g) whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon organic brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup (120g) canned pumpkin purée
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons vegan butter melted, plus more for serving
- Neutral-flavored oil of choice for cooking pancakes
- Pure maple syrup for serving
Homemade Pumpkin Spice
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- Combine the milk and vinegar in a medium bowl, stir, and set aside for 5-10 minutes to slightly curdle.
- In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and whisk to combine.
- To the buttermilk, add the pumpkin puree and vanilla. Whisk together until well combined. Drizzle in the melted vegan butter and stir until just combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and fold with a wooden spoon until just combined. Do not overmix – lots of lumps are fine. Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
- Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium-low to medium heat for several minutes. To test if the pan is hot enough, throw a couple drops of water into the pan – if they sizzle as soon as they hit the pan, the pan is ready. Add a touch of cooking oil and distribute evenly with a paper towel so there’s just a thin film of oil.
- Ladle ½ cup pancake batter into the pan. Cook until the bubbles become rather uniform in the center and the edges of the pancakes start to dry out and brown, about 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
- Carefully flip and cook on the second side until golden brown, 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Store cooked pancakes on a heatproof tray or plate, each pancake separated by a sheet of parchment paper. If desired, keep warm in the oven at 200ºF while you make the rest of the pancakes.
- Repeat with the remaining batter, adding a touch more oil to the pan as needed to cook the pancakes.
- Serve pancakes warm with a pat of vegan butter, if desired, and maple syrup.
