If you love pancakes and pumpkin flavored things, then these vegan pumpkin pancakes are going to be your new favorite thing.
They are so fluffy, so thick, but so soft.
Pumpkin has a reputation of only being a fall ingredient, however it’s really good year round.
When people dispute whether or not they like pumpkin, it’s usually not the pumpkin that they may find a turn off but rather the mixture of spices that is commonly known as pumpkin spice.
Pumpkin itself makes a dish moist and is a great replacement for eggs while also aiding to help with moisture.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I make these Top 8 Allergen Friendly pumpkin pancakes?
These vegan pumpkin cheesecake pancakes are already very allergy friendly; however, they do contain wheat in the form of flour and you need to consider your dairy free milk.
If you need this recipe to be completely allergen friendly in regards to the Top 8 allergies, we would suggest that you switch the flour for gluten free cup for cup flour (we like this one).
Use whatever dairy free milk that is safe for your family. We love using oat milk.
CAN I PREP THESE VEGAN PUMPKIN PANCAKES AHEAD?
Absolutely. Cook them and let them cool completely, then store in an air tight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
Pop into the microwave for 30 seconds at a time or into the oven for a few minutes to warm back up.
CAN YOU FREEZE VEGAN PUMPKIN PANCAKES?
You can absolutely freeze these dairy free pumpkin pancakes. Wait until they are completely cooled and then we suggest freezing these on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes to flash freeze.
Then, put the pancakes in a freezer safe container or zip-loc bag.
Can I use another type of squash for this recipe?
Absolutely. Butternut squash puree would be perfect in something like this. Alternatively, you could also use pureed sweet potatoes.
