Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Servings: 8 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (160g) roasted butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup (120g) whole fat plain or Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (25g) rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup (40) whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground walnuts

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to food processor/blender and blend until smooth. 
  • Heat a pan or grill over medium to medium-low heat. Coat pan with butter or oil. 
  • Drop 1-2 tablespoons of batter into the pan. Cook until lightly browned (about 3 minutes) then very carefully flip. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. 
  • Enjoy with topping(s) of choice

Notes

Texturally, these are very moist. Therefore, be gentle when flipping over. Otherwise they will break.
These pancakes are not sweet and that's intentional. They will make for a great vehicle for both sweet and savory toppings
However, if you desire a sweeter pancake, you can add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce or mashed banana. You can also add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup but here are my thoughts on added sugars.
Cool completely before transferring to an airtight container. Will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also flash freeze.
