Paleo Pumpin Protein Pancakes

healthy paleo protein pumpkin pancake recipe

paleo protein pumpkin pancakes

ingredients:

  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (make your own!)
  • 1 scoop vanilla egg white protein powder (or whatever vanilla protein powder your little heart desires if you are not strictly paleo)
  • 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

instructions:

  • stir in/dissolve the pumpkin into the egg whites & add the honey
  • mix dry ingredients separately & add to the wet ingredients
  • heat pan or griddle on medium low heat (4 out of 10) and coat with organic coconut oil or coconut oil spray
  • using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto your cooking surface
  • once it bubbles up, use a spatula to flip it over & cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 min on the other side
when i cook these on 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!
this time around, not only did my husband shovel an entire pancake into his mouth in two bites, but he then asked how long he had to wait for me to take a picture of it before he could eat the rest! :)
