Cooking with kids: Pumpkin pancakes with printable

Y has been absolutely obsessed with pancakes lately! He loves to eat them, and I love creating healthy recipes with lots of yummy ingredients. Of course, this time of year, pumpkin is finally available and we are taking full advantage of it by creating delicious recipes like these super healthy pumpkin pancakes!

One of the things I absolutely love about Montessori is the independence and confidence that it encourages within kids. I can really see it in Y! He loves to do things for himself and loves to learn new skills. 

One of our favourite things to do together is cook. Given his recently developed love of pancakes, I decided it would be fun to give him the opportunity to make a batch of pancakes. Today, I am sharing the recipe that we created, as well as a printable that you can use to help your kids cook independently!

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of flour (we used buckwheat flour) 
  • 1/2 cup of steel cut oats
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg 
  • 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil for frying
  • Optional: dash of cinnamon 


  • Mash banana 
  • Add pumpkin puree
  • Mix or whisk together  
  • Add remaining ingredients 
  • Mix well 
  • Heat griddle or frying pan on medium-low heat 
  • Add oil (we use 1 teaspoon of coconut oil at a time) 
  • Add 1 spoon of batter
  • Once the batter starts to bubble, flip. The pancake should be easy to flip and should stay together. If you are having trouble flipping the pancake, it is likely that it needs to cook longer on that side until more bubbles have formed. 
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes on second side
  • Remove pancake from pan 
  • Add more oil as necessary
  • Add more batter and make more pancakes!
