Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

Say hello to your new favorite pancake recipe!! These pumpkin spice protein pancakes are exactly what you're looking for: they're quick and easy to make, a great source of carbs and protein, aaaaand they taste like fluffy floofs of fall. These pancakes go perfectly with sliced apples, pecans, almond butter, and maple syrup. You can also bump up the protein by serving them with turkey bacon, sausage, or hard-boiled/scrambled eggs. Yum!

Time: 15 minutes

Makes: 12 mid-size pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (you can use more for more cinnamon flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1-2 scoops protein powder
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups milk (any kind you prefer)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional toppings: chopped pecans or walnuts, nut butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, diced apples

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and protein powder
  • In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, milk, vanilla, and eggs together
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter on a hot, greased griddle, and let cook until bubbles begin to form on the open surface. Flip onto the other side and cook until both sides are golden brown
  • Serve with your favorite toppings, or let cool, store in food storage containers, cover, and refrigerate/freeze

Recipe Modifications:

  • Gluten-free: Use gluten-free flour instead of whole wheat flour
  • Nut-free: None
  • Vegetarian: None
  • Vegan: Use chia or flax eggs instead of eggs. To make 1 flax/chia egg: combine 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds or chia seeds with 1 Tbsp water. Also use a plant-based protein powder.

Recipe Notes:

  • For thicker pancakes, use 1 cup of milk. For thinner pancakes, increase the liquid to 1 1/2 cups milk
  • I recommend using a vanilla or cinnamon flavored protein powder
  • Bump up the protein content by serving the pancakes with turkey bacon, sausage, or hard-boiled/scrambled eggs
  • This recipe makes 12 mid-size pancakes. Double the recipe if you want more than 2-3 pancakes per day
