Happy Fall Y’all!
It finally feels like fall in Texas. Literally, the temperature went from 90 degrees on Sunday to 58 degrees on Monday! Brrr! But this Fall weather means that it is time to break out the pumpkin recipes!
Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
These Pumpkin Protein Pancakes are a cinch to make with only 4 ingredients. Plus, they are so fluffy and light! They are also the perfect meal prep breakfast. Make a batch of these and portion them out to have as a quick breakfast during the week.
I served these protein pancakes to my family and everyone loved them! A little pat of butter and some sugar free syrup are the perfect complement to these protein pancakes. You could also add a sprinkling of pecans for that crunch factor.
Sometimes with protein pancakes, they can get really flat and flavorless. Well not these little babies! Most of the flavor comes from the type of protein powder that you use. For this recipe, I used the Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein powder and let me tell you, the pancakes tasted fantastic! I felt really good about serving these grain-free pancakes to my father-in law, who is diabetic, and to my kids, who I want to nourish with good-for-you ingredients.
These mini pancakes may be small in size, but they are full of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Nothing like starting your day with a nutrition packed breakfast that is also cute, tasty and full of Fall flavor!
