Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes {Sugar and Gluten Free}

If you’ve ever tried the South Beach Diet, you’ve probably tried their Oatmeal Pancakes.  I love them, but I decided to give them a Fall twist and add pumpkin.  Who says you can’t have pumpkin in the spring?  Try this fun twist to spice up your breakfast!

I know that adding pumpkin to the recipe kind of kills the low carb idea for the diet, but these pumpkin oatmeal pancakes are still much lower in carbs than regular pumpkin pancakes.  As an added bonus, they’re high in protein, and they are sugar and gluten free.

This recipe was an experiment, and I absolutely love it!!!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes {Reduced Carb, Sugar Free, Gluten Free} from OneCreativeMommy.com


  • 4 Egg Whites (or 2 Whole Eggs)
  • 1/4 c Pumpkin (Canned or Pureed Fresh)
  • 1/4 c Cottage Cheese
  • 3/4 c Oats (I like Walmart Whole Grain Quick Oats, but for Gluten-Free, try McCANN’s Irish Oatmeal)
  • 1 t Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 t Cinnamon
  • 1/4 t Nutmeg
  • 1 pkg Sugar Substitute (I used Splenda)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 t baking powder (optional–makes the pancakes more fluffy)

(Makes 6-8 good-sized pancakes.)

This recipe must be prepared in the blender!  I love to use my Blendtec Total Blender.  It makes everything quick and easy.  If you use a Blendtec, put the ingredients in the blender in the order I listed (wet ingredients first).  If you use a regular blender, put in the dry ingredients first.

  6. I love these pancakes! I make them every couple months :) Think they’d be good with unsweetened applesauce in place of pumpkin? I’m out of pumpkin :) Or would peach purée work? Thanks!

  7. Hey I was just curious, I came across this recipe and wondered if there was a dairy-free replacement for the cottage cheese? Maybe more pumpkin or dairy-free yogurt? Just curious thanks!
