Healthy pumpkin pancakes made with oats and cottage cheese. Full of pumpkin spice flavor and packed with protein and fiber, these pancakes are the perfect way to fuel a fall morning!

Few things are better than a nourishing, filling, fall breakfast! These healthy pumpkin pancakes are our new go-to!

Top with a little nut butter or coconut oil for some healthy fat and voila — you’ve got yourself a complete breakfast that will keep you full for hours!
