Healthy pumpkin pancakes made with oats and cottage cheese. Full of pumpkin spice flavor and packed with protein and fiber, these pancakes are the perfect way to fuel a fall morning!


  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • maple syrup, for topping
  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Add oats, egg whites, cottage cheese, pumpkin, baking powder pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon into a blender and process until the batter is relatively smooth. 
  2. Heat pan or griddle to low-medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Once hot, scoop out about a quarter cup of batter at a time and pour onto pan. (You should be able to make about 8 small pancakes.)
  4. Cook until little bubbles form and the edges of the pancakes are solid enough to put a spatula underneath, about 4-6 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook for one to two additional minutes.
  5. For serving, place four pancakes on each plate and drizzle with maple syrup and/or nut butter.
