Fall is in full bloom with Halloween just behind us and Thanksgiving right around the corner. On that note, one of my favorite treats this time of year are pumpkin spiced coffee and pumpkin pie. Given that both of those aren’t exactly nutritious I figured I’d work on a pumpkin recipe that you can enjoy guilt-free. Protein pancakes are one of my favorite healthy meals to cook, so I whipped together an extremely easy, high protein pumpkin pancakes recipe. Each pancake has 102 calories and packs over 11 grams of high quality protein — enjoy!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes
Servings: 1 batch, 4 pancakes
High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes, Ingredients:
1 large egg
2 egg whites (egg whites in a carton work fine too)
