- In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, mashed banana, almond milk, egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Batter will be thick (if it is way too thick to spread on a pan add in a tablespoon or two of milk).
- Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with coconut oil and heat over medium.
- After a minute or two, drop batter by 1/4-1/3 cup onto skillet (using a measuring cup works well).
- Cook until bubbles appear on top, about 2 minutes.
- Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside, 2 minutes.
- Repeat with more oil and remaining batter. Enjoy!
