Protein Pumpkin Pancakes

Last night while doing my Monday meal planning I got a creative idea for a wonderful Sunday morning breakfast. If you know me at all, you know I am not the biggest pancake lover, but for someone I have been craving them. As well as French Press coffee! So this morning I made sure both happened.


These pancakes are packed with protein and other clean ingredients.

Protein Pumpkin Pancakes


1 scoop protein powder
3/4 cup liquid egg whites
1/8 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp pumpkin purée
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (or any flour to thicken up)
1/4 cup oats (or not)

1/2 cup of blackberries mashed and nuked in the microwave


Whisk egg whites until they are firm and have a peak. Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients and the pumpkin purée. Then fold in egg whites. Heat up a non stick griddle to medium heat and put 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Nuke the blackberries and pour on top of your cakes! Also added a little agave for a bit more sweetness, but you don’t have to.



I also poured a little batter into my mini donut maker and it made for some healthy little protein snacks!


You can really pour any pancake batter into the donut maker. I am going to make some carrot cake protein donuts and banana ones!

I heart COOKING!

Off to church 🙂 Have a restful Sunday.
