These autumnal protein pumpkin pancakes are so easy to make…though it did take a few attempts to get the recipe just right!  The Pulsin Vanilla Whey protein adds a delicious touch of sweetness! 

Instructions

  1. Whisk together all batter ingredients. Set to one side for 10 minutes to settle and thicken.
  2. Heat a non stick pan and grease with spray oil.
  3. Add 3 tbsp of batter to the pan for each pancake. I cooked two and then three together.
  4. Allow to cook for 2 minutes, cover the pan with foil and allow to cook for one minute more. This is key for easy flipping!
  5. Flip and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
  6. Serve stacked topped with Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt, toasted pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey!
