Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

I had been craving pancakes and I had an unopened can of pumpkin purée in my kitchen. I decided to research healthy pumpkin protein pancakes recipes and I came across this one by Delicious By Dre. I modified the recipe to make it a single serving (which still makes about 4 or 5 pancakes, even 6, depending on their size) and also changed the ingredient list a little bit as well. They make a great pre- or post-workout snack. Try these and you won’t be disappointed!

Makes about 4-6 pancakes, depending on size

Ingredients

  •  ½ cup liquid egg whites
  • 3/8 cup pumpkin purée (¼ cup + 1/8 cup)
  • ¼ cup oat flour (finely ground oats, you can make this quickly in a blender)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use MRM Vanilla)
  • 2 packets pure stevia
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Optional: ½ or 1 tbsp organic pure maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Mix egg whites and pumpkin purée in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining dry ingredients.
  3. Combine two bowls and mix well until it is a liquid batter.
  4. Heat griddle or pan on medium heat. Spray with olive oil cooking spray or coconut oil cooking spray.
  5. Pour batter on griddle/pan.
  6. When it starts to bubble up, use a spatula to flip it. Cook for an additional 30 seconds to one minute.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 with remaining batter.
  8. Serve with ½ or 1 tablespoon of organic pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
