Tender, spiced protein pumpkin pancakes that can be whipped up in the blender. Healthy, simple and perfect for chilly fall mornings.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup (27g) oats
  • 1/2 scoop (13g) protein powder (I like IdealLean Caramel Mocha)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup egg whites from a carton
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée*
  • Optional: stevia, splash vanilla, pancake syrup, maple syrup, butter, fresh fruit
Instructions
  1. Preheat large skillet or griddle and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Grind oats, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder, spices and stevia (if using) in the blender until it’s flour-like. 

  3. Add, to the blender, egg whites and pumpkin and blend for a few seconds.

  4. Pour batter onto preheated griddle to make 4 pancakes; cook for about 5 minutes and until golden brown. Flip and continue to cook about 3 more minutes and until both sides are golden brown.

  5. Serve immediately topped with your favorites and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*If you're not feeling pumpkin, you can easily substitute 1/2 medium (60g) banana for the pumpkin. **I serve my pancakes with Walden Farms Pancake Syrup. It's sugar and calorie free. ***This recipe makes 4 good-sized pancakes that's filling for one adult. If you're making other breakfast foods or you're serving children, this could work as two servings. ****Please note that nutritional information was calculated using IdealLean protein and depending on the brand of protein used, information could vary.
