I love fall and I love pumpkin.
This morning I was not feeling super hot, but I was determined to make a healthy choice for breakfast. I spied some pumpkin and recalled a recipe for pumpkin protein pancakes. I went from memory:
pumpkin puree (about a 1/2 cup)
protein powder (1 scoop)
egg whites (I used 3)
I mixed it up. Heated the pan. Poured it in. Made two pancakes. And….tasted like crap. Sorry, but it did. Pumpkin crap. So I added a little butter and syrup and it was a little better. Saved the 2nd one for work and ate it with a little nut butter on it for my mid morning snack. A little better (thanks to Justin’s honey almond butter). However, in spite of the bad luck in the kitchen, I’m not giving up on these.
I found two other recipes, one with 4 ingredients (swapping cinnamon for vanilla) and the other many more ingredients (I’ll definitely go with the more is better, personally). I missed the sweet; however, I will say it was filling and definitely kept me going all morning long!
