pretty sure the best thing about fall is pumpkin. period.
pumpkin decorations, carving pumpkins, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, and of course…
paleo pumpkin protein pancakes. duh!
i almost gave up on pumpkin last week when it utterly failed me in an attempt to make some (non-paleo) pumpkin pancakes. i always try to save a failing recipe (sometimes those end up being my best!) so muffins sounded like a fantastic change of direction for my super thick ‘pancake’ batter. when my husband (who will eat just about anything) took one bite of the muffin and immediately plopped it right back down on the counter top, i knew it was a disaster.
so…the pumpkin bug crept up on me again this week and i had to try again! this time i decided to get rid of the greek yogurt and go paleo…don’t hate me, but i added a scoop of clean egg white protein powder and a dash of baking soda! once you try these, i’m sure you’ll be glad i did! :)
i would totally challenge ihop’s seasonal pancakes with this healthy recipe. they turned out fluffy and delicious with only 80 calories and 7 grams of protein each! seriously, no syrup even needed!
this time around, not only did my husband shovel an entire pancake into his mouth in two bites, but he then asked how long he had to wait for me to take a picture of it before he could eat the rest! :)
nom. nom. nom.
