Paleo Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Tongue Twister, can you say it?
Paleo Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
I love pumpkin, protein AND pancakes so this is a marriage made in heaven! Enjoy!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 10 pancakes
Serving Size: 1 pancake
Calories per serving: 80 calories, 7 g protein each
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla Shakeology
  • 2 tbsp organic milled flax
  • 2 tbsp organic honey (or splenda/stevia)
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. stir in/dissolve the pumpkin into the egg whites & add the honey
  2. mix dry ingredients separately & add to the wet ingredients
  3. heat pan or griddle on medium low heat (4 out of 10) and coat with organic coconut oil or coconut oil spray
  4. using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto your cooking surface
  5. once it bubbles up, use a spatula to flip it over & cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 min on the other side
a griddle is ideal, but when i cook these individually in a pan, i put the pancakes on a piece of foil in the oven on warm as soon as each one is finished so they are all hot & fresh when i'm ready to eat them!
