It’s Pumpkin Time of year!!

Now that it’s Autumn, pumpkin flavored food and drinks are everywhere.

This morning I decided to try out creating a pumpkin protein pancake recipe… and it worked!

It seems that pumpkin purée is a great substitute for applesauce. (Good to keep in mind for future baking)

As with all my recipes, it’s really simple.


• 1/4 cup pumpkin purée (not pie filling)
• 1/4 cup egg whites
• 1 scoop protein powder (I used Cookies and Cream)
• 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Blend all ingredients together. Cook the same way you would cook a pancake.

I got 2-3 pancakes out of the mixture, which is great for one person.
