Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Banana Oat Pancakes

Repeat after me, “I am a pancake addict.” Time to enter a 12 step program? No way! You can have pancakes AND abs (Really, you can!) The key is to make homemade pancakes from scratch, not a box of that just-add-water nonsense. I make pancakes several times a week (breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert- any time is a good time for pancakes) and it only takes a few minutes to whip up a homemade batter. I have a handful of go-to pancake recipes but I always make them my own (and healthier) by changing up, adding, and subtracting a few ingredients. This recipe in particular I tried for the first time yesterday and it was really a “What will happen if I throw this in there and leave this out” kind of thing, and my 2 year old daughter and I loved them so much we made them for lunch again today! *And the mom of the year award goes to….* haha

All out of sugar and syrup? No problem! These pancakes are so full of flavor you don’t need any added sweetness.
