3 Delicious Fall Pumpkin Recipes Packed With Protein

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes Recipe

pumpkin protein pancakes fall pumpkin recipes
2 Scoops PrettyFit All-Natural Whey Protein -Vanilla
⅓ cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filler!)
1 egg
2 tbsp egg whites
1 teas pumpkin spice
1 teas cinnamon
Dash of almond milk (depending on end consistency)

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well only adding almond milk if you need a thinner consistency. Heat a skillet to low-medium heat covering the pan with coconut oil. The trick to these pancakes is to cook them on low heat and slowly so they can cook all the way through without burning. I topped mine with chopped almonds, almond butter and Walden farms sugar free syrup. Enjoy!
