These pumpkin protein pancakes are seriously the BEST fall breakfast (Although I won’t judge you if you want to make them year round).
They’re made with only 10 simple ingredients, are packed with fall flavor (hello pumpkin and cinnamon!), are loaded with protein, and are just overall a delicious breakfast anyone will enjoy!
And if you love pumpkin, these Pumpkin Overnight Oats are an equally delicious breakfast as well! And if you need high protein – this Strawberry Banana Smoothie or Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars are also great!
These protein pancakes are a recipe that I’ve been making for years. I make them with NOW Foods egg white protein powder which is my favorite protein powder.
It has pretty much no taste, so I love adding it to smoothies for extra protein.
Up until recently, that was my favorite protein powder. Now, this Creamy Vanilla Egg White Protein Powder is becoming my favorite! This protein powder has only five ingredients (still very minimal when compared to other protein powders!).
I can drink this protein powder with just almond milk and enjoy it, but I love it in baked goods!
I’m pretty sure it’s all thanks to the protein powder. They’re moist from the pumpkin, perfectly sweet with just a bit of maple syrup, and are hearty enough from the protein to keep you full all morning! I think you’ll love them!
