Pumpkin Spice Oat Pancakes with a Cranberry Ginger Compote

Don’t you love saying the word ‘compote’? Makes me feel so fancy..

I am a huge sucker for anything pumpkin. Pumpkin spice lattés, pumpkin cheesecake, and most definitely pumpkin pancakes. These yummy pancakes made working from home on this rainy Monday morning just a little bit cozier. I decided to make them with oats this time and was amazed at how fluffy and light they turned out. In fact, I found them fluffier than regularly made pancakes..such a game-changer! And coupled with the cranberry-ginger compote (Seriously.. love this word), it was like Thanksgiving in my mouth..The ginger added a spicy bite to the sweetness of the cranberry..Delish! Overall, an amazing (and super healthy) pre-Thanksgiving breakfast. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did 🙂 Happy Holidays!
