5 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and Tofu Avocado Scramble

Some days you just need something quick and easy. You know, days where half the family has a stomach bug. Pancakes are gentle on your stomach when not feeling well, and it is all the better to have a veggie in there too.

The tofu scramble can be varied to include whatever veggies you have on hand, just make sure they are mostly cooked before starting the tofu scramble portion. Here is the starter recipe we use. Avocados add a delicious creaminess.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

2 cups flour
1/4 cup oil
2 Tbsp. baking powder
2 cups non-dairy milk
1 can of pumpkin pie mix

In a large bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Whisk in the remaining ingredients until batter is smooth (small lumps are fine). Heat a skillet or griddle to 350 degrees/medium high heat. Pour a ladle's worth of batter to make the pancakes. Once it begins to bubble, flip and allow to cook until done. Serve hot.


  1. Oh yum! My husband and I were just talking about how we never make pancakes anymore. This looks like such a simple recipe to help us dive back in!
