Flourless Whey Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Makes 2 servings

  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tbs vanilla unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • 2 Tbs ground flax seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the protein powder, egg whites, Almond Breeze, flax seeds, canned pumpkin, and cinnamon
  2. Stir until well combined. The mixture should not be too thick... add a tsp or 2 of water if it is.
  3. Coat a saucepan with non-stick spray and set over MEDIUM heat. Pour 1/2 of the mixture into the warm pan and spread till it is a circle about 7 - 8 inches in diameter.
  4. Let cook several minutes. You will see a bit of bubbling from underneath and the batter should lose its shine as it cooks. Leave till most the shine is gone and then gently flip over. Cook a couple of minutes more.
  5. Remove pancake to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  6. Cook the second pancake in the same manner.
  7. Top with your choice of syrup to serve.
