Pumpkin Cinnamon Protein Pancake Recipe

Pumpkin Cinnamon Protein Pancake Recipe

This is a great pumpkin cinnamon protein pancake recipe, These are great to make when pumpkins are in season(September-March) and what better time than October. This is a Vegetarian friendly recipe and it is gluten free. Cinnamon and pumpkin are one of my favorite combinations of flavors. I use maple syrup but if you happen to try something else and like the outcome please share it in the comments :)

PS. Make sure you use Gluten Free Baking powder(like Argo Baking Powder) for this recipe if you are making this recipe on grounds of it being gluten free

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (or 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice + 1/4 tsp cinnamon)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbs water
  • 1 scoop Protein powder(Vanilla Protein Powder – I used  Designer Whey)
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 3-5 packets of Stevia (or 1/2-1 tbs sweetener of choice)

Directions

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! You can use a hand blender and a bowl if you have one.
  2. Meanwhile, heat up a nonstick griddle coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto griddle.
  3. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Serve warm!
