Extra fluffy and soft pumpkin spice pancakes to warm you up this fall season. This recipe is made in partnership with Safeway and Albertsons stores using their innovative, plant-based, compostable products.
Longer days are approaching, which seems unfortunate, but fortunately that means another excuse to sleep in and treat yourself to a breakfast feast. Or is that just me?
My idea of an ideal fall breakfast, includes a stack of fluffy pumpkin spiced pancakes topped with a pad of butter, drowned in maple syrup, and served with a savory side. This recipe happens to be just that.
O Organics® and Open Nature® products, found exclusively in my area at Safeway and Albertsons stores, make it easy for you to enjoy delicious, plant-based, healthy products whether you’re short on time or want a quick, simple meal.
Mindful eating shouldn’t have to involve multiple trips…it should be convenient without sacrificing quality for value or only having a small selection of products. What I love most about Safeway stores is their large line of organic, minimally processed, affordable products, specifically from the Open Nature and O Organics line. Open Nature products are made from simple ingredients and free from 110 food additives like artificial flavors. I am all about sustainability and Open Nature has biodegradable and compostable products. O Organics is USDA Certified Organic and much more affordable than leading organic brands.
I buy my O Organics and Open Nature products at my local Safeway stores, and you can also find them exclusively at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Supermarkets and Carrs/Safeway.

These pancakes only contain 6 simple ingredients! All the work is already done for you with the help of O Organics Gluten-free Pancake and Waffle Mix. Simply combine the mix with non-dairy milk, oil (or in this case, pumpkin puree), and egg (to make it vegan, use a flax egg).
In my opinion, pancakes are not complete with a healthy dose of maple syrup. O Organics 100% Pure Maple Syrup is extra flavorful, affordable, and all natural.
To finish this recipe off I paired my stack with O Organics Plant-Based Breakfast Patties. They are made from natural, simple ingredients. I know it’s hard to find quality plant-based meat alternatives, but O Organics prove to have found the right combination of flavors and textural components.
