Pumpkin Protein Pancakes – Bikini Competitor Approved!

As my competition approaches I have to start cutting out a lot of foods from my diet which includes dairy, Greek yogurt and bananas (just to name a few). Most of my protein pancake recipes call for smashed banana or plain Greek Yogurt.  I had the choice to give up my favorite breakfast for 10 weeks or get creative in the kitchen; I chose to get creative.  I substituted pure pumpkin for the smashed banana and added some pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to give them a new twist.  These are amazing and meet my morning macro needs.  Top them with some Walden Farms chocolate syrup and you are all set for your day!

What you need:

  • 1 Cup Kodiak Cakes Pancake Mix
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 6-8 packets of Stevia
  • 1 cup all natural canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup liquid egg whites or 5 egg whites
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups water

Directions:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients well
  2. Add wet ingredients and mix well (batter may be too thick so add additional water until you get to the desired consistency)
  3. Pour on pre-heated griddle (~1/4 cup per pancake)
