Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

First,  let me start by saying that there are so so SO many ways to make these pancakes. My recipe for these changes all of the time, depending on what I have on hand in the cupboards, and who I am making them for.

Pancakes are one of those things that I can make half asleep. We all have those dishes that we can make on “auto-pilot” and without a recipe in front of us. Sometimes I have pumpkin purée to use up after the holidays and I will incorporate it into the wet ingredients. Or I will add cottage cheese as a way to add extra protein and reduce the amount of flour used.

Anyhow, the recipe below is the most basic version, but I encourage you to experiment with adding or swapping out ingredients and making it your own.

 

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

 

Dry Ingredients

1 cup Gluten-free all purpose flour

1/2 cup Omega Nutrition Virgin Coconut Flour

1 serving (1 1/2 tbsp) Omega Nutrition Pumpkin Protein Powder

3 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp raw organic cane sugar OR coconut sugar

1/2 tsp salt

A couple dashes of cinnamon or favourite pumpkin spice mix

 

Wet Ingredients

1 1/4 cup almond milk

1 egg

3 tbsp Omega Nutrition Coconut Oil, melted

 

Preparation

Mix dry ingredients all together in a large mixing bowl

Beat egg in separate bowl

Melt coconut oil. If heating the oil in a stove or microwave, make sure you do not add it to the beaten egg while still hot, or it will cook the egg, I usually add the almond milk to the coconut oil first, then it is cool enough to add to the egg.

When the wet ingredients are all combined, you can add them to the dry.

Mix until you have a batter that is thick but runny enough to pour easily.

Grease a cast iron pan or skillet with coconut oil and heat on medium high.

Use a ladle to pour the batter into the pan. I usually do 2 or 3 small ones at a time, but you can do bigger pancakes one at a time as well.

Let the pancakes cook a minute or so and then check the edges. Once bubbles begin to appear and the edges lift easily, use a spatula to flip and cook the other side. Repeat as necessary and until all of your batter is gone.

Eat while still warm and top with fresh fruit such as bananas or the berries of your choosing. I also like to add a nice dark organic maple syrup as the finishing touch. Enjoy!
