  • 2 1/2 cups butternut squash chopped
  • coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • fresh grated nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt plain
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup oat flour


  • Peel and chop the butternut squash and measure out 2 1/2 cups of chopped squash.
  • Heat a large skillet with a lid over medium high heat. Spray generously with coconut oil. Add the butternut squash, coconut sugar, and spices. Stir to coat squash, and then cover with a lid. Allow to cook for 7-10 minutes, stir, and then cover and allow to cook another 5-7 minutes until squash is very soft.
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of squash to use as a topping if desired (or just use it all in the pancakes).
  • Add the rest of the butternut to a larger bowl, and using a fork, mask half of the squash. Leave the other half chunky.
  • In a larger bowl, add eggs, yogurt, milk, baking soda, and sea salt. Mix together well.
  • Add the half mashed butternut squash and the oat flour, and mix just until the flour is all wet.
  • Heat a skillet over medium low heat, and spray with coconut oil. Pour pancakes in, and allow to cook until bubbles start to form on the tops of the pancakes. Flip, and cook for 2-3 more minutes until pancakes are cooked through.
  • Serve pancakes with your favorite toppings. They are sweet all on their own, but a touch of maple syrup, honey or date syrup is delicious as well!
