It's that time of year again, my friends. And I hope you're ready!

Pumpkin season is officially upon us (at least here at the SQ headquarters) and I'm pumped. I've got so much fun pumpkin-themed content coming your way and we're kicking things off with a bang: Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes that are light, fluffy, sweet and over-the-top delicious!

Facebook logoTwitter logoPinterest logoHow to make THE BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes on the planet!

In looking through the archives of the site, I was surprised to find that I've made 13 different pancake recipes!

We've got everything from Fluffy Vegan Blueberry Pancakes to Zucchini Quinoa Pancakes and even Healthy Carrot Cake Pancakes, but we were definitely lacking in the pumpkin department.

Pumpkin Pancakes are probably one of my favorite varieties. Not only do they taste like pumpkin pie (<- fave dessert), but they're also quite healthy. The pumpkin adds a slew of nutrients that you wouldn't get from just using almond milk, like vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber.

Plus…there's chocolate. So how can we go wrong?

I've changed up my traditional pancake base to give you one that is allergy-friendly. I know a lot of you are allergic to nuts, and specifically almonds, so I wanted to give you a pancake recipe that is not only gluten-free, but also nut-free, egg-free and vegan.

So that's what we've got!

A vegan pumpkin chocolate chip pancake recipe that is free of the top 8 allergens!

Now you might have noticed from the photos that I didn't use traditional chocolate chips, but I just want to reassure you chocolate chips are a-okay in this recipe! (I just couldn't find any locally ????)

My favorite brand is Enjoy Life Foods because it's vegan and allergy-friendly. They have three different products to choose from and you can get them at places like Whole Foods, or also online at Amazon and Thrive Market.

And if you're feeling like chocolate is just a bit too decadent for you this morning, you can, by all means, skip it. Instead, you'll have a batch of fluffy vegan pumpkin pancakes and they will be every bit as delicious.

Honestly, you really can't go wrong starting your day with pumpkin pancakes!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat a cast iron skillet or griddle on medium heat.
  • Whisk all your dry ingredients together (minus the flaxseed meal) in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat in the flaxseed meal and the wet ingredients until smooth. Pour this over the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. You want it to be slightly runny but still hold its shape. Fold in the chocolate.
  • Test to see if your pan is hot by flicking water on it. If the water sizzles, you’re ready to cook!
  • Grease the pan with a bit of cooking spray. Ladle the batter onto the pan and cook the pancakes until little bubbles begin to form in the batter, about 2 – 3 minutes. Flip them over and cook for another few minutes.
  • Serve with you choice of toppings (additional chocolate chips + VT maple syrup get my vote!), and of course, enjoy!

Notes

* instead of individual spices, you can also use 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  3. Can I use quinoa flour instead of quinoa flakes? I cannot find them anywhere in my area and I’m too impatient to buy them online and wait for them to get here. I want to make these now. 🙂

    • I haven’t tested with quinoa flour, sorry! But I do think that you could use quick cooking oats to replace the quinoa flakes 🙂
