Another yummy way to get Pumpkin into your day….Protein Pumpkin Pancakes! These pancakes are gluten free and unlike my other pancake recipes they don’t contain banana. You’ll need only 4 ingredients to make them!
I’m going to be quick with this one, as lets be honest the picture does the talking! The chocolate protein mixed with the pumpkin puree is just such a tasty combination and when topped with extra chocolate sauce and figs, it takes it too another level!
For me the weekends are all about slow breakfasts with a good cup of tea or coffee. Before the DIY begins on my house extension of course! And this weekend I was definitely in the mood for pancakes, but with a little pumpkin puree autumnal twist. As I just can’t get enough of it right now! I also used some buckwheat flour in the recipe which made them super thick. The perfect texture. If you want a pancake recipe that doesn’t use flour then check this one out… 4 Ingredient Banana Protein Pancakes.
This pancake recipe isn’t Vegan however you could sub the whey protein for Vegan protein and the egg for a flax egg which I’m sure would work just as well. I also have a Vegan Pancake Recipe you could try and just add some pumpkin puree too.. Vegan Protein Breakfast Pancakes.
I hope you enjoy them just as much as I did. I’d love to see your pictures if you do make them, so make sure you tag me in them on Instagram cleanleanbakes 🙂
