Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

The pumpkin obsession continues. After stopping into Target today to get rope for our Bootcamp banner (Obviously I knew we would be walking out with more than rope…come on it’s Target) and having a freak out in the middle of the aisle upon discovering Pumpkin spice and Apple Pie gum, I decided to come home and make breakfast for dinner. Instead of my usual protein pancakes I decided to add some Fall flavor to them by using some Pumpkin Purée I got last week at Trader Joe’s. After being skeptical about the outcome I was excited to see they came out delicious. Here’s the recipe:

pumpkin Protein Pancakes
~ 1/4C Pumpkin Purée
~1/4C Old Fashioned Oats
~1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein
~1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
~1/2 tsp Baking Powder
~1/4C Liquid Egg Whites

Mix all ingredients well in a blender. Bring skillet to medium heat and pour batter as big as you would like your pancakes. (I made them about 3 inches across and got 3 pancakes). Cook for about 1 minute per side.
To top them I combined 1/4 scoop whey with a little bit of Almond Milk to create a vanilla cream topping.

Let me know how you like this delicious fall treat!
