Flourless Pumpkin Oat Pancakes

Oh for you lovers of pancakes and pumpkin I have a recipe for you!  Such a perfect fall recipe with less than 250 calories per serving!

My idea for this recipe originated from a previous post  "Sunday Morning Oatmeal Pancake for One".  To add fiber and reduce the amount of calories (compared to a traditional pancake recipe) both recipes skip the flour and add oats.  Compared to my first pumpkin recipe, this time I wanted to create a recipe designed for the whole family (serves 4).  With that being said I have also made this recipe as a single serve recipe.  You just need to divide the ingredients by 4.

For the glaze I used yogurt to provide a creamy and tart flavor while still not adding significant fat.  It seems like I have been adding yogurt to my recipes like crazy lately!  Yogurt can add a wonderful moistness and serve as a fat replacer.  There will be plenty more recipes with yogurt.
I am excited about additional pumpkin recipes I plan to work on!  What are your favorite pumpkin recipes?

2 cups plain oatmeal (uncooked)
10 egg whites
4 teaspoons non-fat milk
4 packets Splenda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¾ cup pure pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Non-stick cooking spray

8 teaspoons powdered sugar
8 teaspoons non-fat milk
4 teaspoons non-fat greek yogurt

1.    Mix all pancake ingredients except oatmeal; once mixed well add oatmeal
2.    Spray medium skillet with non-stick spray; heat to medium
3.    Spoon about 1/8 of batter in skillet to make about 4.5 inch diameter pancake (batter will be thick – I had to flatten the mixture with back of spoon in skillet); cook about 3-5 minutes; flip until cooked through; repeat for remainder of batter
4.    Mix glaze ingredients; drizzle over pancakes
