PUMPKIN PROTEIN PANCAKES! I admit it! I have a pumpkin addiction, but who doesn’t.
I took the pumpkin mini-cake recipe I had and tried it out as a pancake. It makes 3 decent size pancakes for under 100 calories!
Make sure to whip the egg whites FIRST and real good so they pancakes come out nice and fluffy! Mix other ingredients in, add milk as needed to get the right consistency and just cook like regular pancakes.
Nutrition (entire recipe): 98cal, 1.3gFat, 5.6gCarbs w/ 2.5gFiber, 17g protein.
I made a protein syrup like to top it with, i just took a little bit of protein powder and cinnamon, mixed it with some warm water until the consistency was thin and delicious. (this of course will add just a few calories, but not that much!)
